Hello loyal readers, our summer opening has been a great success, and our customers have loved the fact they can get stuff done on a Saturday morning, this weekend is super special though as its a bank holiday weekend and Igor is also opening the shop from 10 am till 2 pm on BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY, just for you.

But we digress. This blog post is all about what we do AS well as Thesis binding.

Welcome to this, the 2nd of 5 blog posts aimed at educating our loyal readers in the fact that we do much more than bind Theses

Did you know that

We are very good at Faux Leather & other Materials too!

Faux Leather

Faux Leather is an excellent alternative to real skin, with a smooth finish on the outside padding on the inside, this material feels luxurious and premium – we have more colours, ask or order here

Bonded and Recycled Leathers

Recycled Leathers and bonded leathers use off-cuts to make a real skin material at a fraction of the price. These materials look, feel and smell like leather and are an excellent solution for anyone who wants a premium product with a limited budget. We have many more colours; please ask


Brillianta is brilliant; it is all about the texture. The surface is rough to the touch and will add another element to any book, and again we have many more colours; please ask


If durability at a reasonable price is needed, you can’t go wrong with Rexine, Used as a bookbinding material and upholstery covering, Rexine was also widely used in trimming and upholstering the interiors of motor vehicles produced by British car manufacturers beginning in the 1920s, and the interiors of railway carriages.

Cloth and faux leather covers add an element of luxury to your project, and we see a lot of our customers who choose not to use leather in their life use asking for these products

As you can see we do SO much more than just Thesis bind
