HERITAGE & REPUTATION MAKE US FIRST CHOICE FOR LIBRARY / ACADEMIC BINDING.

TRADITIONAL & MODERN TECHNOLOGY TO RE-BIND DAMAGED BOOKS .
EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND CRAFTMANSHIP IN EVERY BINDING.
We pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship and our hard bindings are no exception. Thread sewn through the spine, glued and cased in between thick 3mm boards these bindings have a rigid finish with a solid structure promoting durability. The spines can be square backed or we can give them a curved spine for a more traditional feel. We continually source the highest standard of cover materials from buckram cloth through to finest grade one goat skins for prestigious bindings.
Our heritage and reputation make us first choice for library and academic binding. We offer a variety of binding styles from economy bindings through to premier bindings. We guarantee that every volume has one thing in common. Quality. All work received is checked and bound as specified by the library and we can match your previous volume for binding style, colour matches and lettering positions.
Soft cover paperback books don’t always withstand heavy use and handling and often become worn and fragile. For paperback books that need some extra strength to the covers we can apply a protective film to the outer cover, this is known as Lyfguarding, a process which makes the outer cover more rigid and ensures better shelf life. If the book is not replaceable and out of print we can offer a cost effective answer to have the book rebound with a digital reproduction of its original illustrated cover. By doing this you maintain the authenticity of the book whilst strengthening the binding.
We are able to offer a PUR binding service. PUR Binding is the binding of materials using polyurethane reactive glue. This type of adhesive is excellent for tackling heavy weight jobs and forms a strong bond with any paper or surface. This binding method promotes durability and flexibility keeping books on shelves longer. This style of binding is an economical investment, with budgets been reduced it is imperative we keep books alive and increase longevity and PUR binding will help maintain the dexterity of original books.
With forever tightening budgets and the majority of books been expensive to purchase it is more economical to re-bind existing damaged books. We utilise both traditional book binding techniques and modern technology in order to re-bind your book to its former glory. If a book is beyond repair we can easily recreate it by scanning the book and creating a facsimile copy.
