Individual and Custom Bookbinding

grandpa bindingEven though we treat every bookbinding with individual care, individual bookbinding refers to the person rather than the book.   You don’t have to be a large corporation with a big run to have your bookbinding, book repair, or rare book collection restoration performed at Turul Bookbindery.  There are NO minimum quantities.  Our services are retained hundreds of times each year for personal book binding services.

Individual also refers to another aspect as well- individual preference.  At Turul Bookbindery, we cater to our customer’s bookbinding, book repair, and rare book restoration needs.  Our clients pick their book’s cover color, book stamping color, book cover material, and many other facets of the bookbinding and book repair process.  The possibilities for your book projects are endless!

Individual bookbinding and custom book making can be anything from a compilation of your favorite magazines to your college thesis, or your Moms hand written journal of memories or recipes.  Imagine your favorite journal or your grandfather’s military journal beautifully bound or restored to preserve through the years!   At Turul Bookbindery, we do it all.  Here are just a few of the many options offered for your books

Wedding Albums and Mementos

Is you wedding album from the 1980 sticking to everything you place it on, we are able to remedy the situation.   Is the family wedding album from the 1950’s and 60’s (front and back cover along with the pages being held together by metal posts) now falling apart and in need of tender loving care.

Magazine/ Publication Volumes
Are you a subscriber to a magazine or a newsletter?  Do you have STACKS of them around your house?  Why not convert them into beautifully bound books or a nice set of volumes to display on your book shelf?!

Correspondence Compilations
It’s not uncommon for someone to keep treasured personal letters as a remembrance of someone special.  Correspondence is also kept for legal or for reference purposes.  Turul Bookbindery can bind a compilation book of these letters or emails to keep either as a sentimental keepsake or a handy reference book. We design and create books and journals for any special occasion!

Memory Books

  1. I have a collection of American private press books. One of the Roycroft suede covered copies has a couple of pages separated from the binding. Can they be sewn bank in? If so would this be expensive?

  2. I have collections of magazines I would love to have bound into nice books. However, I live all the way across the country. How do I go about getting my collection to you to have bound? On average, what would a year’s (12 issues) cost as a bound book? Thank you for your help.

  3. Thank you for sharing that it is possible for us to have anything bound. My wife has a collection of magazines that she intends to have bounded to ensure the magazines are more organized. I will inform my wife that she can have them bounded.

  4. Hello,
    The book I’d like repaired is a 1971 The Exorcist. The spine is in disrepair, and the bindings are coming loose causing some pages to come apart from the book.

    • Please send digital photos of the book, as well as the size condition of the paper and pages. Are you looking to restore it, with the possibility of selling it in the future, or for your own use.
