Custom Leather Bound Book Printing Services

    Books are handsewn and hand bound with special care; quality over quantity, printed and built under one roof. I handcraft these leather bound books to be unique and personal to you, a friend, or a loved one. They will be a one of a kind book to treasure. Take your writing, your book, special emails, or blank pages and I'll print, fold, hand sew them into a hand bound leather book to last a lifetime and beyond.

     I have the writing specially formatted to make the book into a sewn style that has been around for centuries, and has proved to be of quality construction. There are many different options I can offer: different weight, and color papers, different types, and colors of leather, special marbled end sheets, and even personalizing the cover with gilding or tooling. You can be a part of the process every step of the way, and make the choices to create your own unique timeless treasure.

Custom Order Book Policies and Things to Know

print leather bound book

-Pricing example, a 6" x 9" size book with 200 handsewn pages, hand bound in leather starts around $355. Printing your text onto the pages in black or grayscale, color printing, custom images, gilded gold designs, lines of text on the leather cover or spine, different leathers, formatting on my end, and other various options will change the pricing. Pages are formatted printed and folded here in my shop. Text blocks are sewn by hand onto tapes creating a book that opens flat. These are handmade books from start to finish using your vision as my guide. 


-Rush orders may have an additional fee

(any book that has a specific deadline may qualify depending on the amount of work I have already)

-Formatting your pages before they are sent to me is not only helpful but can save you money and make sure the document looks the way you want it to. 


Documents should be sent in word (.doc .docx), and pdf if possible.

(please contact me so we can decide on the book size you want and I can tell you what size page to set your document to)


-Largest book size I can make with text in house has a page size of 9.5" wide by 13" tall. 


-Every custom leather book and journal is unique and different, hence the pricing varies as well. Email me to discuss your custom book or journal project, and get a quote.


-If I have to cut pages to a specific size there will be an additional fee
