About Essex Bookbinders

We produce high-quality products using traditional and modern techniques. We can restore your pre-loved books, preserve valuable bindings and create boxes and slipcases. We can give your projects an added dimension with foil-blocking, embossing and debossing. We can also help you design your own bespoke products, create prototypes and produce dummies of your own designs. We can print and/or bind books for writers who want to self-publish and produce business cards, brochures, binders and hardback books. Examples of our work can be seen in our gallery.

We offer a full range of restoration services from simple re-binds to full restorations including leather work and gold-gilding/blocking.

Bookbinding & Self-publishing

We can help you design and print your own books, or rebind existing ones in a different style. We specialise in short-run hardback books (from one to 500).
