In addition to traditional bookbinding and fine leather binding, we offer a variety of other services.

We offer de-acidification of flat paper items such as birth or death certificates, marriage licenses, deeds, letters and diplomas, as well as Mylar encapsulation using an ultra sonic weld to protect them from further deterioration. Portfolios, presentation binders, scrapbooks, gift books and photo albums can be custom designed to fit your needs in your choice of materials. We make clamshell boxes to hold books, photos, letters or documents. Slip cases, and specially designed protective containers are custom constructed.
