Blue laminated book masthead

Here we have another recent example of custom bookbinding produced here at The Document Centre in London. This one is a custom-sized hardbound book which has full colour printed covers which have then been matt laminated. To the interior are section-sewn inner pages, also printed in full colour, which are bound in a way so as to see full double page spreads which lay quite flat when the book is opened. We printed, bound and produced the entire job in-house and will feature another similar job in the near future.

The Document Centre is a specialist bookbinder and printer and has several core bookbinding services. These include book repair and restoration so if you have any tatty books, collectors’ items which are falling apart, personal journals or other books which need a little TLC, then get in touch and we can make them look almost as good as new. We regularly replace covers on bibles and other religious books, for example. Other bookbinding-related services include printing and bookbinding from scratch, for example for presentations, keepsakes, one-off novels and photo albums, as well as corporate binding for companies and organisations who may require bespoke binding for special presentations or proposals (architects and designers often require such services from us). We are also, of course, thesis binding specialists and supply bound dissertations and theses to most of the UK universities, to the exact specification required by each of them. We supply many types of document and book binding including hard binding, soft binding, wiro binding (much nicer than comb binding), velo binding, perfect binding, glue binding and thermal binding. More information on each binding type is available here.
