Established in 1984, I have over the years had the privilege to work on many famous collections such as Caxton and Isaac Newton and early printed books.
We suggest students check the requirements for the University for the colour and cover wording, as the examinations offices are often very strict about the final binding. We offer two styles of boxes which are accepted at York University, which are the Solander “Clam Shell” box and Flap top box, a box with 4 flaps tied at the top with a ribbon and attached to a case, lettered on the outside with regulation wording.
Here at Bindwell Bookbinders Ltd, we are known for our superior craftsmanship in case binding and traditional hand binding.
We have also bound theses for Universities all over the country, including; The University of London, Leeds University, Manchester University, Glasgow University, Liverpool University and the University of Hull. They are sewn, calico lined, with 120gsm end leaves, then hard bound in library buckram, which is embossed with the best brass type to give a clear impression.
We offer a wide range of colours, book ribbons and type faces. Music scores often require a box to hold A3 and A4 scores as well as CD’s, DVD’s and sometimes a hard bound book.
