This is where it all began for us at Mechling Bookbindery. Over 20 years ago we began our own family history research, which eventually led us to book printing and book binding. It is still one of the most important parts of our business today. We are proud of the hundreds of family histories and research books that have been entrusted to us over the years. We totally understand that it takes countless hours of research and preparation before this type of book gets to the printing stage. That is the reason you need a careful eye to work with you in the final production phase to avoid commonly overlooked mistakes. We take pride in our one-on-one personal service and close attention to detail.

  • "I found your company a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and very fast. I did not think I would have the final copies available in such short time. I was also pleased with the cost. Your rates were very reasonable. Some friends told me that I could not go wrong with Mechling--and they were so right. "

    I have so many good memories over the years with Mechling. In fact, they have become like a second family to me. In addition to being scrupulously honest, they are meticulous publishers. Each volume of my County Chronicles is a top-quality book, from cover to cover. I have received countless compliments on the appearance of my County Chronicles series--books I am proud to put my name to. My readers love the books, and often comment on how nice the Mechling folks are to do business with. It is not only satisfying working with Mechling, it is wholly enjoyable. "
