Refurbishing, Rebinding, Specialty Binding, and more!
Our restoration and rebinding work has included: county histories, ledgers, journals, court dockets, Bibles, church records and hymnals, first editions, out-of-print and rare books, children’s books, cookbooks, to name a few.We can also do: slip cases, foil stamping, edge gilding, deacidification, encapsulation (preservation with easy retrieval; for documents, maps, etc.), and the list goes on.
Our patrons include: individuals, businesses and other organizations, churches, libraries, historical societies, museums and private collectors--nationwide and overseas.
Old books and materials require special attention, and each one has specific needs depending on its condition and value. Prices for restoration work vary widely due to different materials and amount of time required. We are always happy to provide individual quotes for our work.
How to ship your book to us"Just got my books, they are beautiful! Thank you so much. I don't think I told you, but these books are said to have survived 4 San Francisco earthquakes! 1856, 1906, 1948 just minor shocks, & 1989. Although hearsay, it's probably the reason they looked so bad. Again, thank you on a great job, my friend."
"The four books arrived safely Friday night (7:45 pm), but I had been watching for 13 hours. Megan kindly sent me the tracking number, and Friday morning at 6:45 am, the website said the books were out for delivery. It might have been the longest day of my life! But they are beautiful! The papers you chose for each of them are exquisite and appropriate (to my mind). Your leather-work, as always, is top-notch. Adding the lines on the spines of the Chapman Homers was brilliant - thank you for that suggestion. The leather titling labels on the spines of the Shakespeare and the Tolkien are exactly what I had hoped for; you and your staff are brilliant. I sincerely hope you derive as much joy from your work as your work provides for your customers. These are the 7th, 8th, 9th, and tenth books you have re-bound for me and I love them! I could rhapsodize for paragraphs but will close with my profound thanks. Thank you."
