Products & Services
Update February 2023: 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 disruptions in supplies – leather, book cloth, printing paper and binders board are 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 working with limited staff as hiring at the moment is challenging. We’re very selective in our choices and want only the best to handle your treasured books!
For fastest turnaround, please use the new “Make A Book” option (found at the top of any page). It allows you to make all the choices for your book. You’ll even see an image of what the book will look like! For print orders, it will let you upload your print file for immediate processing. With rebind or restoration orders, it will print the order worksheet to send along with your existing book. Since it collects all the information we need, your order is streamlined and gets processed immediately when it arrives!
You can still use the “ORDER NOW” link at the top of the page to print a form to fill out, or send your order with a letter describing what you would like. For those orders, we call you to let you know when the order is received (so you know it’s safe & sound). It then takes 3-6 weeks to evaluate your order and we call again to confirm your choices before proceeding. From that point, it’s 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 will discuss options to get it to you faster.
If you’re local, you can also stop in to drop off an order. Thank you so much for your continued business and patience! We appreciate it and hope to be in business another 169 years!
Stay safe, stay healthy and take some time to enjoy a good book in a cozy corner somewhere 🙂
