Custom Leather Bound Book Printing Services

    Books are handsewn and hand bound with special care. Prioritizing quality over quantity, they are 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 endsheets, and even personalizing the cover with gold stamping, gold tooling, or debossing. 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. Adding printed text or images to the pages, creating custom images for covers, incorporating designs, adding titles to the leather cover or spine, choosing different types of leather, formatting by me if time allows, and other options will change the price. Pages are formatted for printing, printed, and folded here in my shop. Text blocks are sewn by hand onto tapes creating a book that opens nearly 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.
