What Our Customers Say...

Here at Messy Merlin we are very proud of our customer service-

"So far I've ordered a personalised teacher gift (a chopping board with the children's names in their own handwriting) and three personalised Christmas ornaments. All of the reproductions have been perfectly done, wrapped and presented beautifully, and completed incredibly quickly-even sent an ornament directly to the recipient because I was late ordering, and included a lovely note! Can't recommend Messy Merlin highly enough." Merith - Salisbury


"Have just received two very special boards created by Messy Merlin to give as gifts. Fantastic communication from the very beginning-lots of help and advice and extremely prompt with this too! Can't recommend this company and their products enough-so unique and special. Products are top quality too. Exceptional, thank you Shelley!" Liz - Dorking, Surrey


"Shelley created the most amazing personalised father's day gift for my husband from our son. She used my son's drawing of 'Daddy on a skateboard' and burnt it beautifully onto a pizza board for us. Communication is excellent and the turn around time for the orders is great considering they are handmade to order. I have since ordered a teacher's leaving gift and two more chopping boards and all have been loved by their recipients. Thank you Shelley!" Lydia - Horsham, West Sussex
