(Corona Virus) Update October 2022:  Though the pandemic seems to be behind us, the effects of it remain.  We are working hard to get caught up and back to normal.  But there are now disruptions in supplies – leather, book cloth, printing paper, binders board and a number of other items we use have been back-ordered at times.  We continue to look for alternative sources so we can keep things flowing, but at times we just have to be patient and wait.  We are also working with limited staff as we lost a few employees and hiring at the moment is challenging.  We’re very selective in our choices and want only the best to handle your treasured books!

We ask that you continue to send your orders in and thank you for your patience.  All orders are logged in daily and then done in the order received.  We call you to let you know when the order is received (so you know it’s safe & sound).  Then it’s taking 3-6 weeks to evaluate your order, once evaluated, we contact you to confirm the details before we start any work.  Then, it takes another 2-4 weeks to complete the order.   If the item is needed by a certain date, please put “RUSH” on the outside of the package and we can discuss options to get it to you faster. 

The bindery is also open if you want to drop or pick up an order.  Thank you so much for your continued business and patience!  We appreciate it and hope to be in business another 168 years! 

Stay safe, stay healthy and take some time to enjoy a good book in a cozy corner somewhere 🙂
