What is the difference between Book Repair and Book Rebinding?
"Book Repair" is our service to save all or part of an ORIGINAL cover or spine. This type of service is when you are looking for an antique book repair or an old book repair and you want to keep part of the original book.
The Book Repair process is nearly identical to our Bible Repair page. On that page, you can see how we use several bookbinding techniques to reattach torn covers and spines. We use a "reattachment", "well" and other bookbinding methods. To learn how our bookbinders restore the book functionality and the tasks that are performed for a book repair, please see the Bible Repair page.
"Book Rebinding" is our service that replaces an existing cover with a NEW cover.
The Book Rebinding process is nearly identical to our Bible Rebinding page. All books also go through our bookbinder checklist to restore book functionality. This checklist is similar to "Our Bible Rebinding service restores the Bible's functionality" section that can be found on our Bible Rebinding page.
We have a large selection of beautiful and durable goatskins, sheepskins and cow plonge leathers as available upgrades. Standard book rebinding material is bonded leather.
NEW covers mean more opportunity to personalize your book with foil stamping options, including names, text, and images.
When you send your damaged book to us, we perform our multi-point inspection to understand the condition of the book. One of our staff will contact you to discuss the type of book repair you want, along with our bookbinder's recommendations.
Options and Extras. We can help you decide...
We have options and extra services to complement our Book Repair and Book Rebinding services. We intend to discuss these with you when we have our consultation. We encourage you to explore the Options and Extras page which goes into more detail about these items.
This is a general summary of most of the options and extras that would normally apply to a book rebinding or repair:
- Upgrade cover materials: Our standard rebinding service material is with a high quality bonded leather. We also have a large selection of goatskin and leathers.
- Ribbon book markers: Customer selects color(s) and the number of ribbons is dependent on the thickness of the book block. Plenty of colors to choose.
- Foil Stamping Options to personalize: There are numerous ways to personalize. We have gold, silver, copper and gunmetal foils. Click for more information on Foil Stamping.
- Spine bands: Raised bands add character and dimension.
