Essex Bookbinders is a family-run business. We offer a traditional hand-binding service with a modern outlook.

We can restore books, bind theses, journals, menus, photo albums and many other types of book using traditional techniques. We can do foil-blocking, embossing and debossing to give your products an extra dimension. We can also help you design your own bespoke bindings, create prototypes and produce dummies of your own designs.

Essex Bookbinders can print and/or bind books for writers who want to self-publish.

Whether you are a school, restaurant, hotel, football club, court, library, museum or an individual, we can create beautiful hand-bound books for you. All our books are handmade by skilled craftspeople.
