Frequently Asked Questions
How do I place an order on your website?
It's really easy to place an order online with us. Go to the shop link and click on the items you would like to purchase. Once you click on an item it will bring up a description and under this is an option to 'add to cart'. Here, you can change the quantity of an item as well if needed. This places the item/s in your shopping basket, which when you're ready to finalise can be clicked on (it can be found in the top right hand corner of your screen) and then you just need to follow the instructions for payment. We accept both card payments and payments through Paypal. If you need further support with purchasing through our website, please don't hesitate to give us a call on +44 7708 566 763.

Why have you chosen to use the Sassoon font on your materials?
The success of the Sassoon fonts in supporting children to read and write is underpinned by research that asked children what features of letters and spacing they preferred and what was easiest for them to read. The arches of the font reflect the movement of handwritten forms and show clearly the relationship between the letters, thus preparing children indirectly for later writing confidence and competency. It is used widely in educational settings around the world because of these properties.
