Textbooks and Library Books
Schools and churches stretch their budget substantially when they choose to rebind their tattered textbooks and hymnals, rather than purchasing new books.
Books rebound at Mechling Bookbindery last as much as four times longer than the original bindings!
We take extra steps in our binding process, do much of the work by hand, and use high quality materials.
All books are resewn with thread (not stapled) and glued twice. For additional strength we apply a strong cloth back-liner that wraps around the spine and connects both cover boards.
We scan and print most covers from the original books. If the original covers are not available or not suitable, we will substitute with theme printed covers. The new book covers are made with heavy-weight 100-point boards, encased with full-color printed Kivar and then laminated for extra protection. Kivar is a heavy, tough material made from paper fibers and latex. Extremely hard to tear—unlike most book covers fabricated from plain paper—it is made to last.
