Album repair experience
I recently (Jan 2020) had my album repaired. It had a covering that had turned sticky and it seems there was a history of this occurring with this album from 1983. Bella Becho company made it so easy for me to send my album from Indiana to Texas and order a repair of my album. Staff at Bella Becho were so polite and clear in their instructions. I really appreciate this because I was nervous about sending my wedding album off to Texas. My new repaired album is exactly the way that I ordered it and I am 100% satisfied and highly recommend this company to everyone.
A sticky wedding album situation
I did not want to replace our original wedding album cover but time (29 years) and a defective, sticky cover made it necessary in order to preserve our pictures. I am sentimental, so I was upset it needed to be replaced in the first place and worried it would not be the same. After searching online for “sticky wedding album cover”, I immediately found Bella Becho and Deborah, an amazing, supportive, and understanding team that made my sentimental wishes come true. Deborah took the time to recreate a new and even better version of our original album down to the custom lettering. I cannot thank Deborah enough for taking the time and showing such patience and understanding to help me through this journey. The new wedding album is perfect and we love it! Thank you Deborah and the team at Bella Becho for your excellent and caring service.
Restoring the Wedding Album
The reconstituted wedding album is beautiful! The upgraded cover and internals assured us that the album will outlive us. Rather than put the album in some forgotten place, we keep it on our dining room table for visitors to see. Your work has made a huge difference in looking back in time.
“You have done a magnificent restoration. I would never have believed it was possible to restore our 63 year old treasured bible to its original condition, but you have done it. You even restored the torn and damaged page to its original condition with all of our family notes intact, just as we recorded them years ago. Our Bible looks and feels like new and will be enjoyed for several generations to come I am sure. Thank you Bella Becho.”
“I couldn’t wait to show my Bible to my family today. It is so beautiful since you remade it. I cried when I got in the car and looked through it. It is exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much”
My well worn Bible was completely falling apart when I sent it in. Anything they would have done would have been an improvement. I received my Bible back last week and I can’t express to you how it looks….absolutely beautiful! The restoration work is amazing. Please don’t hesitate to send this company anything you might need restored…you will be glad you did!
Perfect family Bible restoration
They not only lovingly restored our family bible that was falling apart, but they also created a gorgeous photo album to compliment it. We were completely blown away by how meticulous the repair was and we are so grateful for their expertise and quality craftsmanship.
Bella Becho is a top notch company. From the consultation to the final product, they exceeded my highest expectations. I would highly recommend this company for book restoration.
I only echo the other testimonials that I see here. My mother’s Dickson Bible (her old one) was in my sister’s garage after Mother passed away, and I asked her what she was going to do with it (it was in terrible condition…don’t know how long it had been in the garage, moved around several times with my sister’s family, and generally, neglected, and abused.) I had heard of Bella Becho through a friend and I called and set up an appointment to send my mother’s Bible to them to see if it could be restored (made into a useable condition.) I sent it in, and though, it wasn’t cheap, I wanted it done. When I received it back, I as amazed at the transformation! I am using it now in my studies and reading.
Thank you Bella Becho for your outstanding work!!!
Another very satisfied customer – Wedding Album
Every aspect and step along this process of replacing our very sticky, unusable and 32 yr old wedding album was perfect.
The feel of a family run business started on the 1st phone call. They helped us choose the color and replacement material.
When the new album arrived we were tickled and extremely pleased. Would recommend Bella Becho to anybody. You will be very happy with the choice.
Fabulous wedding album replacement with great customer service.
At first I was surprised at the cost to replace the pseudo leather on our wedding album that had degraded despite good storage as I discovered that our wedding album was not real leather and had become sticky and messy.
I did comparative shopping and Bella Becho was more fair-priced that other companies (with great customer support) and we are so happy with the end result.
My 1988 wedding album was a sticky/ peeling mess. Bella Becho did a fantastic job at repairing it. Looks like new again ! Couldn’t be happier.
Bella Becho Saves Our Wedding Album
I was heartbroken when I saw what had happened to my wedding album. We had the cover that deteriorates over time. Bella Becho not only fixed our issue, they gave me back a better product that I originally had. The album is absolutely beautiful and the process couldn’t have been easier and the staff is fun to work with. We got married in 1985 so I did not hold much hope that we could get our album fixed. But Bella Becho did a beautiful job.
Wedding Album for Sherry and Ridge Boynton
Our wedding album binder was damaged by mildew in a problem with a damp basement caused by some flooding when a pipe burst last fall of 2019. I called Bella Becho and talked to Deborah, she was so helpful and knew exactly how to handle my problem and went over the process of what they would be doing to repair my wedding binder back to it’s original glory, she went over the cost and options for shipping just really covered everything so efficiently . It took about 6 weeks as I was told and when it was shipped Deborah emailed me with the info and shipping # so I could track the delivery,when it arrived 3 days later I was blown away by the new overhauled binder , it was beautiful ! Thank you so much Deborah to you and your team of professionals , I would highly recommend your company to anyone ! Thanks Again, gratefully,. Ridge Boynton
I took my most cherished Bible to Bella Becho that I use in my ministry everyday. I have had it since the early 1970’s and it was falling apart. I was very nervous to part with it, as it has decades of my notes written in the margins, and I don’t even want to think about losing it! They did the most incredible job, and it looks brand new, in fact better than the original! And they were able to do it in a way that I can still read my notes that are written right close to the center binding! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I would not hesitate to recommend Bella Becho for all your book binding needs, and particularly your most important and cherished books that need to be restored. I rate them a 10++++., and I recommend them to you without hesitation.
40 years of wedded bliss!
Bella Becho did a great job of restoring our 40-year old wedding album! The material on the wedding album cover had deteriorated so much, I had to seek out professionals to repair it. From the initial email, everyone I communicated with at Bella Becho was friendly and eager to accomplish what I wanted! I probably spoke to 3 or 4 employees; they were all very helpful, easy to communicate with, and above all, wanted the job to be done right.
The restored project was everything I had hoped! One of the employees even suggested having our names and date embossed on the front. That was an awesome idea and it looked great on the album cover! It was worth the wait (about 8 weeks) to have the job done to perfection!
I would say that the cost was expensive. But, as I have learned, ‘you get what you pay for’ and I would say the cost was worth 40 years of wedded bliss! Thank you Bella Becho! Job well done!
Restoration of parent’s wedding album
Our mother told her 5 children that she wanted one thing for their 60th wedding anniversary; her wedding album restored. We said sure, but truly had no idea where to even go to have the book restored. I googled book restoration and Bella Becho popped up. I reviewed their website and thought, this is just what we need. I contacted Bella through their website explaining the issues with the album and uploaded pictures of it. I was contacted by Deborah and had a delightful conversation about the restoration process and cost. We had about 2 months to get the project completed and Bella did not let us down. We presented the album to our parents last weekend, and they were so pleased. They spent a lot of time going through each page and telling us who everyone was in the pictures. Thank you Bella Becho for helping these 5 children fulfill their parent’s 60th wedding anniversary wish!
Wedding album restoration perfection
I was heartbroken when I pulled out my wedding album only to find its cover had disintegrated due to a defect in the bonded leather cover. Enter bellebecho.com. I was so fortunate to come across them. They were very helpful in explaining the process and I was able to get a super high quality beautiful real leather cover re-built to the exact specifications of my original album and I didn’t even have to redo any of the pages. It’s now a true heirloom that will last for generations. Quality like this is not inexpensive, but in my mind worth every penny.
I sent my parents wedding
I sent my parents wedding album to be repaired a few weeks ago. Their anniversary was coming up and I wasn’t expecting to get the album back soon enough. I wasn’t worried about getting it later. They went all out and made sure it was mailed in more than enough time for my parents anniversary date! I was skeptical about using this site as I’d never heard about it before. Very grateful for Jeff and Deborah. Thank you both for taking time to reach out to me and for going above and beyond what was asked!
Small Run Printing of Commemorative Hardcover Books
It was truly joyous for me to see how wonderful the Roommates books came out under your exacting standards! The heavy hard covers—the luxurious papers—-the trim, the details of the printing—everything was just right—-So Thank you for your expertise!
Took my wife’s Big Book from AA to get refurbished. It came out better than I could have ever imagined! Went with a real leather cover. It was pricey but the look on her face made it worth every penny. They were even able to beat the projected timeline so that I could give it to her on her sobriety anniversary which was today. I got some major brownie points so I should be good for at least the next 3 days ?
Better than new
I researched several companies before settling on Bella. My “baby,” my very special Bible, could not be sent away to just any company. After talking to the rep on the phone, I was able to trust they would treat my Bible with tender care. My Bible was a gift from a former youth choir and while so very special to me, was inexpensive to begin with. After much use over many years, the cover was tattered and the binding was falling apart. I wondered if it could be saved. The answer is YES! I splurged on a leather cover in the most beautiful orange. My Bible was returned to me in about 5 weeks better than new! It is perfect in every way. They were even able to keep my notes visible in the margins, which I didn’t even dare to hope for. My Bible is now useable again and will last a lifetime…and even beyond as I hand it down to my children one day. Thank you, Bella Becho, for taking such good care of my “baby.”
Bella Becho saved our cherished wedding album whose cover had deteriorated due to the imitation leather used 30 years ago. Our wedding album now looks better than new and will be a family heirloom for decades to come.
“Thank you for sending the links for the optimized files for the book. They look very good and the rebinding job on the physical book is superb. The owner of the book will be pleased. I’m very satisfied and enjoyed working with you and your staff on this project.”
Wedding Bible Gift
Since our Christian Book Store had closed, I searched all over to find someone who could personalize the Bible we were giving our son and his bride for a wedding gift. I found Bellabecho online and called them. They were so kind and helpful making sure the process and every detail would be successful and be what we had envisioned. Time was getting short, but they hurried to make it happen quickly, communicating often to ease my mind. The blind debossing method was used, as recommended. Their expertise turned out a beautiful result and we were able to have it just in time for the wedding, as promised!
Restoration of our wedding album
Last spring, as we pulled out our wedding album to share with our daughter who got engaged, we discovered that the album cover had deteriorated and become very sticky. After searching for a new album, I came across Bella Becho. We gave them a call and discovered how easy it was to restore our album. Both Jeff and Deborah were very helpful in choosing a new cover and helped us select a couple of new features. We received our album today and it looks beautiful. So happy to have our album back in mint condition.
Happy New Year! You and your people did a wonderful job on our Bible. Thank you very much!”
Thank you so much for the journal you created for our outgoing president. When she opened her gift, there were gasps from all the other ladies in the room. It was truly beautiful and so unique. The craftsmanship was perfect and the dedication page made this a gift she will treasure forever. I had many women rush over to ask where I had found such an amazing journal. I will definitely be back to purchase more, and I’m sure many from my organization will as well!
“Happy New Year to ya’ll. Thank you so much for the before and after photos. Ya’ll are awesome !!!”
Flood damaged Bible
Our home was flooded during Hurricane Harvey and my husbands family bible was a casualty. so I started looking online for a book bindery and read the reviews for Bella Becho and decided to give them a try. I called and spoke to a staff member who was so courteous, I explained my situation and she assured me that our bible was not the first they were rebinding due to flooding. I brought the bible in and was told exactly what they could do and what to expect, which I appreciated. Well, when I picked the bible up, the binding was beautiful and I was so pleased with the result. I would definitely recommend. I promise you won’t be disappointed. (Google and Yelp 5 star review)
Great Grandmother’s prayer book
Thank you so much for restoring and making beautiful my great grandmother’s St. Gertrude’s prayer book. My mother always had this book open on her dresser and it was falling apart from years of use. I could hardly even pick it up without pages flaking apart. I can’t believe the transformation of the pages. It is a beautiful leather bound book that will last for generations to come. Thank you!!
Best Birthday Gift
My daughter had two books that she uses all the time- first for her Masters, now she will be using them for her PhD. The covers were falling off and the first page of one of the books had torn off. These are books she will be using the rest of her academic life. She had notes in the margins. One of the books had great margins, the other not. The only thing that was ok was the two books were the same size. My daughter had been working with another binding company that appeared interested, asked for all the information and never got back to her. Not so Bella Becho Book & Printing. I completed the on-line form on a Saturday. I was called that Monday, I e-mailed pictures, we discussed what I wanted, the type of leather, lettering, etc. I sent the books USPS express. They received them Wednesday, I received a quote & contract. Since it was a rush (less than three weeks) I paid a little extra. They did an extraordinary job. We received before the projected date. It was a birthday present, my daughter was so pleased with with. My sister and I couldn’t be happier as well. It was a gift we know she truly is proud of. Thank you Bella Becho.
Superb Restoration on our Family Bible
10 thumbs up for the fantastic work done on our family Bible. They were able to save the original cover and spine and reset them into the new cover. Looks great, and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to share it with the rest of the family. I will gladly recommend your services to anyone.
Thank you so much for recovering my Bible. I’ve been reading, researching, teaching, and sharing the Word of God for over 43 years so the cover was very worn. You’ve recreated it with beautiful new soft leather cover. It just feels good again. Thank you for your expertise.
Bella Becho reconstructed a family bible that was tattered and torn. The result was stunning and exceeded my expectations, the Bible looks brand new! Debbie was a pleasure to work with, she was kind and caring offering ideas and options. Thank you for taking such care with a priceless family heirloom!
It was a treat working with these folks out of Houston, especially since we were married there in 1985 but long since move away to Ohio. Our wedding album leather cover was deteriorating and looking pretty shabby after so many years…yes, we are still happily married! Now, we are also the happy recipients of a newly covered album to keep our memories safe and attractive for another 35 year….The service delayed some due to Covid but they were always on top of the job and we knew well ahead of time it would take a while. The results are worth it. We highly recommend entrusting your dearest items to this company. God bless.
I am now the care taker of the McJunkin Family Bible. It has been in the family for 133 years. As such it needed some restoration. Bella Becho has done a fabulous job without destroying the patina and age. The spline was replaced. Family pages were added and torn pages repaired. The cover was restored, yet it gives the appearance as original. This is now a solid, old family bible that will last for generations to come. Thank you Bella Becho! -Russ Van Nortwick
I am really satisfied with the job that Bella Becho did on our vintage family Bible. The Bible was falling apart and seemed very fragile. Once the job was completed, I was no longer afraid that it would turn to dust in my hands. The rebinding process was worth it to preserve a part of our family history. You can now turn the pages without fear! (Google 5 Star Review)
Thank you for the wonderful work you did to restore my Family Bible as well as creating the additional book that tells the ancestors of the first owner (my Great Grandparents)
Wedding Album Cover Rehab
My wife and I sent our 33 year old wedding album cover to Bella Becho Book Bindery (i.e., Deborah and Team) for an extensive rehab. The original cover (faux leather) deteriorated and essentially rendered our treasured wedding album not user/handling friendly. The cover was refurbished with top grain cowhide from Italy, and embossed to match our original cover (actually “exceeded” the quality of our original cover). The final work product was fantastic. Customer service was top notch and professional. Our wedding album is no longer shoved into the back of the closet sticking to everything around it (I think it was the cause of our missing cat in 2005 – kidding). Sincerely, I highly recommend Bella Becho Book Bindery for anything related to book refurbishment and more!
Restoring much more than “A Book”!!
My sister and I wanted to restore my 85 year old Mom’s bible for her and had no clue where to begin…my sweet Mother has lived in these pages of her beloved Bible through a lifetime of memories…taking her through her journey in life and keeping her strong while Dad was gone to war… With so much of her life and prayers noted in little comments along passages that got her through troubling times, thankful times, and questioning times.
We read a few reviews on Bella Becho and reached out to Deborah…
What a blessing that turned into! We just received the fully restored Bible and it is way BEYOND our expectations!!!
All we can say is “WOW, how did they do that?!” So beautifully restored – top quality skill and craftsmanship!
My Mom cried when she received her Bible back and saw just how lovingly restored it was…
Thank you from a Florida family that took a chance and received more than an expertly restored Bible…it brought such joy to Mom!! Sadly, she is declining, but once again she has her Bible, capturing all the memories of life and there is no way to capture the joy and thankfulness we have for the beautiful people at Bella Becho for THAT!
May God continue to bless you, my dear new friends, with continued success as you bring “life” back to irreplaceable family memories… a truly invaluable gift ??
Thank you for rebinding my study bible. Your suggestion of adding my name under my grandmother’s name was a great idea. I will be passing this bible on to my newborn grand baby! I hope she receives as much joy and light as I have. Bless you.
I had a photo book I wanted to print and Bella Becho is the place to go to get the job done. I’ve done tons of research for this type of work in Houston and Bella Becho was the only place that would get it done in a timely and professional manner without breaking the bank. (Google 5 Star Review)
“Bella Becho has printed 2 small scale books for my last two art exhibitions at McClain Gallery. She’s smartest bookbinder in Texas. Every visit is fun, enlightening and major productive. I simply LOVE this place and her generosity is always, always so amazing.” (Facebook Review)
Wow – Amazing transformation of the final product..
My wife and I have been married for 25 years. We’ve only looked at our wedding Album a few times over the years. We were totally upset to see the condition of our wedding album cover condition due to the poor quality of the original cover. Not knowing where to turn we looked on the Internet, and contacted the folks at Bella. Deborah was great over the phone explaining the process, and how long it would take in production to turn the album around. I couldn’t believe the before and after when we received final product. The new cover feels, and looks so much better, and super sturdy. We would highly recommend the services from Bella Becho!
Replacement Wedding Album
I had a great experience getting my daughters Wedding Album cover replaced. Debbie was friendly informative and helpful. I received the album in the time period that I was quoted and was very pleased with the finished product. I recommended Bella Becho to my neighbor who had the same issues with her wedding album. I’m sure that you will be hearing from her. I am so pleased that I will be able to present the new album to my daughter and son-in-law for their 30th wedding anniversary.
I can’t thank you enough.
I couldn’t be happier that I chose Bella Becho to repair and re-bind my beloved study bible! Deborah explained the options and what would be done to complete the repair. She had a large assortment of material and color choices, of fonts and design embossments. Most of all, she treated my bible as something dear to me, not just another project. It’s clear that books hold a special place in the heart of this company and its people.
We used Bella Becho for a corporate gift project and it was an absolute joy to work with them. Even with distance with our office in Florida, Deborah and team were always quick to communicate, efficient in turnaround, and incredibly professional with a high attention to detail. We were thrilled with the final product – delivered on time and with quality and finishes better than imagined. Sincere thank you!
Huge old family bible
I was overjoyed when I received our restored old family bible. Some places would not save the beautiful cover. You were able to & did such a beautiful job on it & the back & spine which was all to pieces. It was all rebound beautifully with restored torn pages. This bible weighs 13 lbs. & had more information & pictures in it than I have ever seen in a bible. It was important to us to save it. Your staff was so friendly. I would definitely recommend Bella Becho to everyone.
Our Executives were very happy with the final product. No doubt, I will be giving you a call with future needs. Thank you again for being so flexible.
1844 Bible and 1889 Shakespeare
I took these two books to Bella Becho. The family Bible was held together with a cardboard cover and string. I trusted Bella Becho with these treasures, and they treated them with love and respect. I could not be more pleased with the work they did to preserve our books. I have two more to bring in! A special thank you to Deborah and Gina!
Thank you so much for the great job you did in restoring my Wedding Album, I love it!!! Christine Hearne
My last hope
I had a little project I needed help with and couldn’t find anyone in my usual channels who could do what I needed for one reason or another. The last recommendation I got (and needed) was Bella Becho. Not only were they able to help with my unique request but they did it beautifully. I’d encourage anyone who needs book binding or de-bossing and custom inlay on special projects to save yourself a headache and go directly to Deborah and the crew at Bella Becho.
Catholic Missal Bible
“This place is amazing!!! I had my aunt give me a Catholic Missal that my great-grandmother owned that was half in Latin and half in English. I’m the only person in my family that is Catholic. It was in very rough shape.
The lady who must own the company was so sweet and nice to me. She appreciated the history behind the book. They grafted my old cover on top of a new cover and integrated everything. It is amazing and I am so appreciate of everything they did and how helpful and how knowledgeable they are…They’re an amazing story with amazing people who work for them. Thank you Bella Becho for saving my Catholic Missal from 1950!” (Google 5 Star Rating)
Beautiful New Binding for Wedding Album
The cover of my wedding album from 1993 was disintegrating. Bella Becho rebound it for me in a beautiful leather of my choice. They were able to add the album title, our names, and year of wedding on the front so it is very similar to the original. They were also able to add this information to the spine which was nice. Bella Becho’s instructions were easy to follow for removing my photo pages from the original album and for shipping the cover to them. A staff member called me to verify exactly what I wanted. I was so pleased with the new binding they produced for me and would not hesitate to use their services again when needed.
I cannot say enough positive about this experience. From the ease of the website for selecting options to the detailed phone consultation to the incredibly timely turnaround time, I am overwhelmed with how beautiful my Bible is again! It’s many years old but now looks fresh and pretty. Of course, one should never judge a book by its cover, (especially a Bible!) However, I will be making an exception to that rule every day when I see this beautiful refurbishment. Thank you sooo much, Bella Becho!
Wedding Album reborn
Our wedding album made of synthetic material turned into a sticky blob.
For our 40th anniversary this year I decided to have it restored using real leather
And the people at Bella Becho were just the most amazing help working with me
On getting our wedding book back to the living room instead of being buried in some
I’m thoroughly pleased with the finished product. The look and feel of my Bible is exquisite. This is my favorite Bible and the original cover was dilapidated and worn. At one point, I believed the Bible had to cease to continue to use it. It’s almost like I have a brand new Bible. I couldn’t be happier because this particular Bible is no longer sold.
1940 children’s books restored
The work done on my 1940 childhood books was exceptional. My correspondence with Deborah was so satisfying and she was such a great help in deciding how to repair my books. These books will be a gift to my granddaughter when her first child is born- she will preserve the books for me.
Wedding album recovered
Debbie is a pleasure to work with and her work is impeccable! Our album had a defective “leather” that became sticky and Bella Becho redid the cover and inside covers; the album looks gorgeous! Thank you!
Wedding Album Cover
Wow, I love the new cover on my wedding album! I’ve been married for 36 years and when I saw the condition the cover was in a few months ago I had tears in my eyes. I had no idea what to do and who to turn to. So glad I found Bella Becho. Such a helpful and professional company with genuine, kind employees. Great recommendations and put my trust in a company with my only photos of my wedding and have to be honest and say I was a little reluctant; but after speaking with Deborah and her staff I was put at ease. Thank you for giving our wedding album a beautiful life-long cover that I am so happy with!
Hurricane Harvey Damaged Bible
Our home was flooded due to water being released from Barker Reservoir from Hurricane Harvey and my husbands family bible was a casualty. I read the reviews and decided upon Bella Becho and am so glad I chose them. They finished drying out the Bible and rebound it beautifully and the staff was so courteous. So very pleased with the finished product. Definitely recommend and will use again. (Yelp 5 Star Review)
During our 30th wedding anniversary week, I pulled out our wedding book to go through with our daughter. I was horrified as the leather binding and front and back covers were sticky, like the book hadn’t been stored properly. It was actually sticking to its keepsake box.
I researched and happily found that Bella Becho was located fifteen minutes from my home in Houston! They do all sorts of binding and repair on wedding albums, bibles, and books. Apparently, many leather wedding books made in the 1980’s and 1990’s have the same issues I had. I am so pleased with the new cover and binding. I highly recommend Bella Becho.
I needed several years of genealogy work put into book form. I sent Bella Becho a very rough manuscript of about 250 pages. They worked with me to determine book style, covering, lettering and form for the book. The final project exceeded all expectations. It is fabulous! I can’t recommend them any higher as they did a superb job.
Great Wedding Anniversary Gift!
We were fortunate to find Bella Becho to recover our wedding album. The old cover had gotten sticky and unusable so we kept the album tucked away in a closet. Now, with the fabulous leather cover, it is proudly shared on our living room table for all to see. Better still, it was done just in time for our 32nd wedding anniversary. I recommend Bella Becho to anyone who has an heirloom album or book to be recovered.
Wedding Album Cover Replaced
A beautiful job! Had our wedding album cover replaced with a genuine cowhide material. It looks very nice, and we are pleased with the quality and workmanship.
This was my second opportunity to work with this firm–a family Bible and my dissertation. Both required creative design and consummate skill. I could not be more delighted with both keepsakes.
NKJV Study Bible
Four months ago Bella Becho rebound my Bible. I’ve read it almost daily for years, as did my grandmother when it was hers. It needed a lot of repair work. Each day since they completed the amazing work they did to restore the Bible, the new cover, the repaired pages, etc. I have enjoyed every detail that they gave so much attention to. Thank you Bella Becho. I highly recommend Bella Becho.
When our wedding album from
When our wedding album from 1979 was in its 43rd year the cover material began to deteriorate. An online search connected me to Bella Becho where I learned that this was a known problem with this brand of album. They knew exactly what to do and how to restore, or in our case, recreate our wedding album. I say recreate because not only did the album covers need replaced, the cloth liners on the insides of the covers were badly faded, and the spine thickness had always been a bit too narrow for the number of pages in the album, making it difficult to turn the pages.
Our album ended up not getting restored, but rather recreated, with improvements. Jeff at Bella Becho discussed all of the details at length with me and thoroughly covered all of the material and embossing options for the new album. We ended up with a much better version of our original album, made with better materials, that fit our original pages better than our old album. We chose embossing which was very close to our original, and reused the brass oval framed cover photo from our original album. The result is an album that looks like our original, but it’s better!
When the album was about done, I asked Jeff if Bella Becho could make an attractive storage box for the new album to protect it from dust, fading, and accidents. He discussed this with Deborah, the founder and owner of Bella Becho. They came up with a beautiful box, coordinated and embossed to compliment and protect the album wherever, and however long it may be stored.
We are very pleased with the results and with the experience we had working with Bella Becho. They were able to do things for us that I don’t think we could have gotten done anywhere else. This custom work was not inexpensive, and it took time to plan, to schedule, and to create, but it turned our worn out old wedding album into a beautiful, durable, and well protected family heirloom. Thank you Bella Becho! We highly recommended you!
Small Children’s Bible
“I … have driven past this place a million times. I was really excited when I finally had a reason to go in. So happy I did! I was looking to personalize a small children’s bible for a baptism. Deborah helped me pick out all the customization… The result will surely be a lifelong keepsake for my sweet godchild. I definitely recommend entrusting Bella Becho with any of books or projects.”
My beloved The Golden Christmas Book is ready for my grandkids!
I left my beloved Golden Book of Christmas with the bindery to have the cracked and poorly taped binding replaced. Important to save: the inscription from my grandparents and the delightful illustrations on the inside covers and endpapers. We even asked to have the worn and stained spots retained to show the years of love! I just got the book back and it is wonderful – sturdily covered, inscription in place, and ready for me to read to my grandchildren this Christmas. It will last several more generations now!
Beautiful Wedding Book Restoration
Bella Becho restored our 1985 wedding book cover and the transformation is amazing! The leather, workmanship and advice were outstanding. Our wedding book is such a family treasure, with pictures of so many family members who are now passed. Bella Becho transformed the sticky, disintegrating and discolored binder into a beautiful, inscribed leather masterpiece! It is amazing how well the leather matches the original photo pages. It was a large investment, but we’re so glad we had this done.
Great Work and Wonderful Customer Servie
After I discovered that my wedding album cover and back had become ruined, I googled for help and up popped Bella Becho. I could not have been more please than when I received my perfectly restored album to better than new condition. They cared about me and my memories. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring book cover restoration.
We were very upset to
We were very upset to find that our 1988 Perma Bound wedding album had deteriorated significantly . We felt so relieved and happy to discover Bella Becho’s restoration services. They are great to work with and they explained their entire process of restoring our album and the options available. Our restored album is absolutely beautiful and it even includes the inside material from our old album. We highly recommend Bella Becho.

Bella Becho has recovered and rebound 3 books for me. Each book had notes written in all 4 margins. The Binder successfully rebound and recovered each book saving the notes so I can still read them. Amazing, quality work. I would trust them with any book.
Bella Becho did an outstanding job on my fifty year old bible. It was literally falling apart, torn pages, cover fell off. It is truly a precious heirloom for my two sons. It looks better now then when I purchased it. Thank you so much!
Impeccable product and outstanding customer service
I ordered a bound book for my wife’s 50th birthday. I’m so pleased I found Deborah Karchmer and her team. Communication was easy, prompt, and professional. As I was on a tight deadline, communication was critical and Deborah was accessible and, dare I say it – just decent, nice and personable. We were on track to deliver the book on time, but then the Texas once-in-a-decade storm hit and everything was snowed over, FedEx closed – and it seemed like we wouldn’t get the book on time. Stressful. However, Deborah and her husband LITERALLY braved the storm to go out and place the package so it would get to NY on time. She gave me her personal number and sent me updates. Deborah and Jeff are the definition of exceptional customer service and what going above and beyond for your customers looks like.
The package arrived, on time! And the product is simply stunning. I could not be happier.
Deborah and Jeff – you have a lifetime customer.
And for whoever’s reading this – look no further. Best in class.
Family Bible Restoration
I researched several binderies to restore our family bible that was from the 1800’s. Once I spoke to Bella Becho I was certain they were the best people to handle this project. I received several e-mails regarding their basic restoration work and pricing. I also spoke to them several times before sending the bible to be sure that I understood the process of the restoration. Once they received the bible, they inspected it to see what work was needed. I received a call from them to discuss everything that needed to be repaired and pricing. They also told me about some things that I would not have known about that were important to repair to maintain the integrity of our bible. We had it restored to it’s original form and it came out beautiful. I would highly recommend Bella Becho for Bible Repair.
Family Genealogy Book
Everyone at Bella Becho worked tirelessly and patiently with me as they took my original work, formatted it, and allowed me to personally edit, in order to prepare a beautiful genealogy book for my family after ten years of research. The final product was so impressive, with an eye-catching cover design, and beautiful glossy paper inside which made all the pictures stand out on each page. I will continue recommending them to others for their caring professionalism.
Trusting a four generational heirloom to folk unknown leaves one with feelings between anxiety and stark fear. No need for all the drama. The book in question was resurrected from near falling apart to a splendid tome destined to survive for another couple of centuries. Aside from the exemplary restoration and Gina and the crew are absolutely delightful – blessings all. The bottom line: Bella Becho has my unrestricted recommendation as well as my gratitude.
Replacement of a 22-year old wedding album
BellaBecho replaced our washed out 22-year old wedding album that was pealing and sticky. A friend told us about them so we immediately visited their website. There was even a video of how you remove the pages! The day we talked at length so that we could choose the color of the new album, we were getting more and more excited. There was a little wait to get the final product, but it was worth it. There’s so many people using their expertise, you will be very pleased with the final product.
Salvaging the unsalvageable
Deborah and her team are nothing short of miracle-workers.
There aren’t enough accolades to describe the restoration that they achieved with an heirloom 1935 Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary that my father had as a child. Both the front cover and spine were torn off and gone. Several of the onion skin pages were torn. It had been on my parents and then, our shelves for half a century. We were prepared to throw it away because of its seemingly unredeemable condition.
And then, we discovered the artistry of Deborah and her team at Bella Becho.
Wow, what a transformation. They were able to formulate a new, custom cover and spine which perfectly replicated the original.
What had become a useless dust collector in one of our drawers has been transformed into a work of art in display on our living room Coffee.
Whatever your book restoration project may be. No matter how daunting you believe the project to be.
Just turn it over to the masters at Bella Becho.
You will be amazed at the results.
Seamless shipping to NY
I had a wonderful experience working with Bella Becho. I am very happy with the beautiful custom book they put together and bound in leather from a digital file I supplied. They shipped the finished copy to me in NY- the whole process very seamless. I highly recommend using them for your printing and binding needs!
NOT just another Bible to the folks at Bella Becho
Nicely done. My wife’s father’s Bible had seen a lot of miles but the fine folks at B-B were able to restore it to like new condition on the outside, while maintaining his comments and notes on the well-worn pages of the inside. Thanks to Debra, Gina, and everyone else for being such artisans.
I had my wedding album and one small additional album recovered. The covers had completely disintegrated, with the help of Deborah I was able to
replace the covers and have the pages placed back within the album. Her suggestions were very helpful and I cannot be happier with the results.
Checking on the progress of this project, I quickly received answers from Jeff and was assured everything was going as promised. I would strongly
recommend for any kind of restoration-the results were amazing!
You guys did great! You refurbished our completely worn wedding album. After 35 years, it wasn’t holding up well. We love the finished product! So glad we decided to have you do the job! Many thanks!!
Rebind or Replace?
I have had several bibles rebound in goatskin leather rather than replacing, as the pages have years of notes, and to replace with similar “paper quality”, I would likely need to upgrade to a high quality leather bible. Once that decision is made, then do I want to add a little extra expense in order to customize, to make it mine? If so, then I wholeheartedly can affirm BellaBecho for their creative design team, attention to details, and exceptional craftsmanship. When I told Deborah that I lived on a hobby farm with goats, named Rose-N-Does, and my favorite goat was named Cali; her design for a custom rebind produced a goat, named Cali, with a rose; a family legacy. Rebind or Replace? Talk to Deborah first as BellaBecho will not disappoint.
Husband’s Bible restored
I contacted Bella Becho in May 2021 about restoring a Bible my husband had purchased in 1987. He just re-dedicated his life to Jesus and wrote in it many things. He took it everywhere. In a few years the binding gave way and he started losing pages. We were unable to replace it, so put it on a shelf. In May I had an idea to have that Bible restored. I researched companies and chose Bella to do the restoration. I sent them some pictures. They got back to me the same day with an estimate. The next day I sent them the Bible. They called me with a plan and worked with me to make sure it was back by Father’s Day. They did an excellent job. Knowing that a person spent so much time and effort personally doing a perfect job makes me very happy and appreciative. A lot of work went into the restoration. I would recommend Bella to anyone needing a book restored.
Wedding Album repair
They replaced an old Art Leather wedding album cover that had become sticky and deteriorated. After searching for options to replace or repair my album, Bella Becho was the best option. While I was a little concerned about mailing my old album(without the pictures), it was a an easy process and they did a fabulous job. I received a call from the company as soon as they received my album and they were very helpful in explaining my options. I decided to go with a real leather cover and they were able to add the same lettering as my original had. While I think the price was a little high, I am very pleased with their work and I would definitely recommend working with this great group to help you preserve your special keepsakes!
Wedding Book Saved!
We had a 1980 era wedding album that was a sticky unattractive mess apparently there’s a whole decade of this kind of a problem but it is now restored to its original beauty and we are so grateful.
