Placing Your Order



First, get in touch…


First, simply email Sophie at or via our Facebook page at:

We will then be in touch to start finding out what style of poem or verse you are looking for;  the occasion or event, a bit about the recipient or audience, and the message or story that you would like your poem to convey.

You will also be able to select your presentation requirements including frame style, gift wrapping, and so on.

Of course, please ask any questions you may have as well.

If you are happy and would like to commission a poem, you can then go ahead and place your order.


When you decide to place an order,  a deposit of £45 is required, payable via Paypal.

You can make your deposit payment by clicking the Paypal button below or using the Paypal button on the Poem Packages page.

The balance payment will then be due prior to delivery of your completed poem.


As soon as your deposit payment has been received, writing of your poem will commence…

We aim to complete all poems within 3 – 4 weeks* from order placement, although this may vary in busier / holiday periods. (*You will be advised at the time of booking.)

Due to the bespoke nature of the poem, on occasion, we may need to contact you again to discuss or confirm additional details – and of course, to ensure that you are happy with the poem before sign-off.

Although the majority of Poems by Design customers are happy with their poem at first draft, it’s quite possible that you might want a few tweaks here and there! If so, we will work with you to make sure you receive the perfect poem in the shortest amount of time.

Your poem will then will then be dispatched once full payment has been received!
