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.

Lindsey Julow Bookbinder

Custom Leather Books

Your books are printed and handsewn individually by a single binder operation. 

    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 endsheets, 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 Leather Book Order Policies and Things to Know

Classic Custom Leather Books

-Pricing for a Custom Leather Book that is 6" x 9" with 200 handsewn pages, hand bound in leather starts around $355. Printed text or images onto the pages, custom cover images, gilded gold designs, titling 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.

-Pricing for a Custom Leather Covered (Recover) Book that is disbound spine stabilized, new endpapers, spine, and boards starts at $270. (This is for existing books; used or new books that you send). See examples of Recovered Books here.
