The Gift of Rhyme

At Bespoke Verse our mission is to help you find just the right words for those important occasions.

Our customers want to give unique gifts that stand out from the crowd. And, because we are professional poets, we promise you won't find our clever verses and phrases anywhere else!

We combine witty words with the work of talented graphic designers. These are printed onto the best quality materials we can find - from bone china mugs, to 100% cotton tea towels.

Joanna Miller is a mum of 3 with an English degree from Oxford University. She set up the business at her kitchen table after giving her own wedding speech in rhyme.

Now we're a small team with our own studio in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. Dickens the doodle keeps us in line!

Part of our range includes rhyming speeches and wedding readings written from scratch. Joanna's rhyming pitch on BBC2's Dragon's Den was described as 'brilliant' by Deborah Meaden.

Bespoke Verse has featured on television, radio, wedding blogs and in magazines such as Woman & Home, Easy Living, Good Housekeeping and OK! We have lots of celebrity customers.

Joanna is an ambassador for Bespoke Verse were 'Less Ordinary Poets' for NOTHS customers on Valentine's Day 2015.

Standard Delivery:

We use Royal Mail's First Class for all UK orders. All orders are dispatched within one working day of ordering (unless a proof is necessary) and usually take 1-2 days. Delivery times are estimates only - this is not a guaranteed service.

Express Delivery:

You can upgrade from First Class to Next Day Delivery Before 1pm. This is a guaranteed service and must be signed for.

International Orders:

These are also sent by Royal Mail on their standard, untracked service. See the table on the product page for delivery time for your region. Delivery dates are estimates only.

Delivery Instructions:

You can leave these for us via the Order Enquiry system and we will write them on the parcel or envelope. We cannot control whether your postman follows your instructions.

If You Were Out:

Our A4 prints are sent in large envelopes which, like our parcels, do not fit in some postboxes and may be taken to the sorting office. A card should be left by your postman, but this is not always the case. If your order does not arrive please let us know and we will ask you to check with your sorting office as this is where the majority of missing orders are located.
