Step 1: Estimate your Bible rebinding Project with Price Estimator (ballpark pricing)

Select the size of your Bible.  An Estimated Price appears in "green" below. Price recalculates depending on selections.

Bible Rebinding with a New Cover Price Estimator and Order Form 2024

"*" indicates required fields

Final price is calculated after our physical inspection at Bella Becho and consultation. This is just an ballpark estimate.
Select Size of Bible
This is only to estimate a ballpark price. If you are not sure about the size, that is ok. We can discuss the options later. For larger Bibles call for quote.
Select New Cover Materials
Standard rebinding comes in bonded leather. We offer other hides, skins and other exotics for purchase. Ask us!
Foiling/Blind Debossing Options for Covers
Larger "In-house" foil stamps and decorative rule lines are available at additional cost. We have other options for purchase. Create a custom metal die and stamp virtually any text, image, signature or logo. Ask us for more details. Blind debossing is a similar process to hot foil stamping but without the foil.
End Sheet Options
End Sheets are the materials attached to the interior side of the front and back cover. Bonded leather end sheets provide more strength, texture and color options. Aged Parchment and Hand coffee stained paper work best with older Bibles and better match the "era". Marbled papers provide a unique look. Our standard interior end sheets are color coordinated paper sheets selected by our book binding team.
Spine Options
Larger spine bands may be additional cost. Spine bands will need "rule lines" to keep the spine band in place. These can be either stamped in foil on blind debossed. Blind debossing is a similar process to hot foil stamping but without the foil.
Page Repair
We use Japanese archival tissue. Page repair is per page. We offer additional page repair services, including dog ear ironing, and other page repair services at additional cost. Inquire within!

    Guidelines for good Packing:

    1. If using your own box, choose a rigid box with flaps intact and strong enough to hold the contents. That means it shouldn't have tears, rips, bends, or other damage. You can use your own box or UPS/Fed Ex packaging supplies.
    2. Select and use adequate cushioning materials for the package contents. It is best to wrap the items individually and/or surround them with bubble sheeting and recyclable or foam loose-fill materials. The item you are shipping should not directly touch the inside of the shipping box.
    3. BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, AND EMAIL INSIDE THE PACKAGE SO WE KNOW IT IS YOURS AND HOW TO CONTACT YOU! (You can print out the confirmation email to put inside)
    4. Securely seal your shipping package. Use strong tape designed for shipping. Do not use string or paper over-wrap.
    5. Properly label the package. Make sure the label has a clear complete delivery and return information.  Make sure to place the label on top of the package and remove any old labels or cross out old markings. Secure the label and avoid placing it on box seams or tape.

    Step 3: After we receive your package, we will set up and have a telephone consultation

    After we receive your item, we perform a multi-point inspection and our bookbinders may make recommendations.  During the consultation, we will be:

    • Asking you about the services you want to be performed.
    • Informing you about the inspection that may have been performed and our recommendations
    • Discussing the Options and Extras.  We encourage you to spend some time looking at the different extras and options before we have our consultation.  We want to be on the "same page" with you before we start!

    Step 4: Receive Invoice outlining services

    If you have shipped us your project:  After our consultation, we will prepare an Invoice and email it to you for approval and payment.  The Invoice will outline the services.  If you have any questions about the Invoice, call our sales staff or send us a reply email.   If you do not have email, please let us know and other arrangements will need to be made to arrange payment.

    Step 5: Make Payment

    If you have shipped us your project:  You should also receive a Credit Card Authorization Form that you can complete and pay by credit card and send it back to us.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and Amex.  We also accept payment by check.  If paying by check, be sure to have a phone number on the check. We require payment before starting any work.  Once payment is made, we will begin work.

    Please do not send cash in the mail.  It could be easily lost.  Please note that there is a charge for return shipping.

    If you decide that you do not want to proceed with repair or rebinding services, before we begin any work, the cost to ship your item back to you is $30.00 for most sized items.  After receiving payment, we will ship.  We do not ship insured and if you want this extra service, you will need to make these arrangements.  Return shipments are sent to the return address you gave us on the form unless notified otherwise. You can also make your own arrangements for pickup.

    Receive your finished book, Bible, album or project

    When we complete the work, we will send you an email notifying you that your book, Bible, album or project is finished and is ready for pickup or shipping.

    If shipping, we will provide you with tracking information.  We do not ship USPS.    

    We look forward to working with you, if you have any questions, please contact us.
