Corona Virus Update 1-6-22:  We are 100% back at work but have a large backlog due to the crazy times we are all living in.  We are working hard to get caught up and back to normal (4-6 week binding time).  But there are disruptions in supplies – leather, book cloth, printing paper and a number of other items we use are 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 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 contact you to complete the details for the order and another 2-4 weeks after that 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.  If you need face to face help, we are limiting it to one person inside at a time (masks required by Dane County for the moment).  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 🙂

The book has landed! I couldn’t be happier with the final product or the experience. It’s oftentimes daunting to look for a specialty item online....
