How do I personalise a sack?
You can personalise your sack by visiting our collection page, choosing a design and then enter the first/last name you wish to have printed. You can also choose the font and the colour of the name.
Can I order more than one sack at a time?
Yes – once you’ve chosen a sack and added the personalisation, add this to the cart – the page will then re-load so you can personalise another sack.
Can I order a sack with just a first name?
Yes – if you enter just a first name, it will be printed large on to the sack, as shown on the preview. If you then enter a surname, it will then shrink down to accommodate both the first name and last name.
I have a long name, and the preview displays it small, can this be fixed?
Our print dimensions are the size of A5 landscape, so the name will automatically scale down to fit within this size. However, we can manually override this, so please do contact us before you place your order so we can advise you.
Can my order be shipped internationally?
Yes! We send orders all over the world via Royal Mail International Tracked (from £7.50) we can also send your order via DHL Express for £15.
How do I use a voucher code?
Voucher codes can be applied on either the cart page or the checkout page. Please type / copy & paste your voucher code in to the box and click “Apply”.
I am on a mobile device but I only see a white page / picture of a sack.
If using a mobile device, our website will automatically resize, to match your screen. Once you click on to a personalised sack – put your finger to the edge of your screen to scroll down the page – this will then display the personalisation options.
How big will the name be printed?
The name will be printed to fit within A5 landscape dimensions – the bigger the name, the smaller it will be printed. However, if your name is quite long, and looks too small on the preview, please do contact us beforehand so that we can help with your order. Alternatively, if you wish to just have a first name printed, you can do so by just entering a first name – this will be shown and printed much bigger.

My Christmas sack is creased, what can I do?
Creasing will occur naturally, as hessian is a natural product. If your sack is creased, place a tea towel over your sack and iron on a high heat.
How do I care for my Christmas sack?
As each of our sacks are made from 100% natural hessian, which originates from the Jute plant; please DO NOT put your Christmas sack into a washing machine, as this will cause the sack the sack to shrink considerably and will ruin the print! We recommend cleaning your sack (only if needed) with a damp cloth. If your sack is creased, place a tea towel over your sack and iron on a high heat.

My Christmas sack is shedding lots of fluff, how can I stop this?
