Transfer Photos & Info to Us

Send us 5 photos (see images above) via WeTransfer. 

 

It is a free and safe file sharing service. You may need to create a free account or they may ask you to verify your email address.

Address the transfer to info@honeycombbooks.co.uk

In the WeTransfer message let us know the name of the school as you would like it to appear. 

Smartphone photos are perfect. 

The School Building - What will the child see as they approach on their first day? The entrance, pathway, classroom or front door can work well here, too. Sunshine helps.

School Uniform & Sports Kit - A boy and girl (or group) in September uniform (at eye level and smiling).

Head and Class Teacher - Photos saved with names, titles and roles as you wish them to appear. Include the school preference between Head Teacher, Headteacher, Head, headmaster and headmistress, as well as Ms, Miss, Mr, Dr, Mrs, etc. There is room for a third image as well if you like. 

Your Logo - if you want it on the front page.

The school will be able to review and approve the book.

We invoice the school and payment is within 14 days. 

By placing an order you are agreeing to our T&Cs.

Common Errors

Include the children's shoes in the uniform photos if possible.

Full length shots of teachers can make faces smaller - we recommend as much focus on faces as possible. We don't need their legs!

 

Save the staff photos with helpful file names so we know who is who. 

The paper books require a signature so if you order when the school is closed we may need a different address.

If a photo on file looks pixilated to you it will look pixilated in the book. 

We can't use photos embedded in PDFs, emails or Word documents. Each photo must be a separate file not a combined document.  

FAQs

We don't know who the teacher will be

A group shot of the SMT or EYFS team works really well and some schools choose to do this anyway.

We have multiple class entry

You can create one book that everyone receives with all the class teachers included or order separate books for each class. 

How long will it take?

Between 5-14 working days for eBooks depending on when you order. March is quick. June is busy. Paper books take longer than eBooks (for print and post).

 

Delays may occur when multiple school stakeholders weigh in to approve the design. Try and secure approval in advance. 

 

We don't have a uniform

 

Send a photo of children in representative clothes. We could also add a photo of the classroom if you prefer.

We want to change some elements of the books

 

Ensure all school stakeholders weigh in early. Text changes are £10 per page. 

 

Inclusion & Diversity: We will change the names of the characters for free if different names would better serve your community.

We can't use Wetransfer

WeTransfer is a free, safe and simple file-sharing website. If you're not able to use the site let us know and we will suggest alternatives.

Can we review the book before publication?

Absolutely.

We want you to check it before we go to print or the eBook goes live :)

 

If there are further changes this does incur a charge per set of edits (£25) to keep the process moving along. Do make sure the relevant stakeholders weigh in as early as possible.

 

We would like a book for nursery Or multiple eyfs year groups

 

No problem. We have a simple version of the book or we can create a book that would work across several year groups. Keep in mind the story is only available until mid-January so may not work for mid-year starters. 

We would like to include more StafF

We recommend simplicity, but you can include more members of the team. 

When do ebooks expire?

 

The eBooks are live for the key months the children need them to prepare (mid-May to Mid-Jan).

Different questions? Call us or email us.

We look forward to your order!

Your kids are going to love it.
