One of the many printing and document binding services that we offer is bespoke bookbinding. This is often used by people needing one-off (or low run) books that are unique. Sometimes they will only be used once or at other times they will be retained as keepsakes or official records. Examples include presentation books for interior designers and architects, concept books for degree students, housing or commercial development presentations e.g. for planning authorities or housing developers, occasionally we produce them for authors or as limited edition books and at other times they’re requested simply to use as year books, commemorations, personal gifts or mementos. What’s common to every one of them is that they’re all unique and very special.

For one recent bespoke bookbinding job, we received a lovely email from the customer. The message sang our praises as printers and bookbinders and we’re really grateful for the lovely feedback. Here’s the message:

“Dear Mark and Louis,
Just to thank you again for the awesome presentation book. The guys made the presentation today and it was very well received, with positive remarks about the book. We are really impressed with your amazing service. Many thanks again.”

This was for an A3 hardbound book which was completed in just 2 hours! We’re pleased that the presentation went so well for the client and it was good of the customer to contact us with such a lovely message.
