We always have a steady flow of Custom Bespoke Books passing through the bindery where we pride ourselves on our ability to supply high quality short-run books to more or less any specification - we have over 60 years of experience in this area.
Many of our customers' requests are for one-off books - particularly ledgers, guest and visitor books. Many of these books will have to last decades and only one will be required.
We are always happy to share full advice and guidance before a project is started to ensure that the perfect book can be created, fulfilling its function and purpose.
Design and Layout
We offer the full service of design and layout, supplying proofs until the book is ready to print. Black and white or full colour print is carried out in our print department before it moves into the bindery where, depending on quantity, it may be folded and hand sewn by our skilled craftsmen (and women). Covers are prepared and embossed and the whole book is ready for casing-in where the cover is fixed to the book block.
Being bookbinders we have enormous experience in papers. Different papers perform differently and therefore have different uses. We try to use only the highest quality British milled papers. However we offer a vast range of coated and uncoated paper, embossed and plain.
Leathers and Cloths
We stock a wide range of bookbinding covering materials. Ranging from colourful and hardwearing cloths to luxury leathers. All have a place and use in bookbinding. Customers can choose from these ranges to match corporate colours or a theme for a wedding!
Often we supply specially made bespoke boxes to fit these unique books. Again, all hand crafted in our bindery.
