Example: Most personal size hand-held Bibles can be totally rebound in genuine leather for as little as $77.50 or in cloth for as little as $52.50, plus return shipping and handling. A study Bible starts at $81.50. A price list for our various leather options is available here, and you can use it to compare prices as you browse our Bible rebinding categories. Most come complete with a new ribbon marker, leatherette end pages, and “Holy Bible” imprinted on the spine or the face of the book. Raised ribs on the spine are default and included in the cost.  (We like the way they look.)

Additional ribbon markers are only $1.00 each.We also have a series of Historical Bibles styles available.  See them described here. For the 2012 Series, check here:

Another example: Most standard-sized hardcover books can be totally rebound in cloth for as little as $57.00, or $59.50 for imitation leather (an embossed cloth).

Our minimum basic repair charge is $20.00 plus return shipping. This usually includes such simple operations as end page replacement, page repairs, or re-casing a book in the original cover.

Binding cord insertion, to shore up broken sewing on the spine or reinforce a glued spine before rebinding, is $22.00.

Additional imprinting in gold, silver, copper, black, or blind stamping (on some leathers) are available at $10 per short line or title.  We also have some colorful foils such as red, blue, and green, and matte brown and white.

Extra note pages (a set of 4 in the front and/ or the back) can be inserted during the binding process for an additional $8.00 for each location.

Additional ribbon markers can be added at $1 each. Appropriate blind-stamped tooling on the cover of a custom family Bible

Return shipping and handling charges are extra and the cost depends on where you live and shipping speed.

Step Three — The Estimate.

When your book or Bible arrives, we’ll send you an official estimate to make sure we’re all on the same page.

When you’ve okay’d the estimate, we’ll put the project on the schedule.

It will need to wait in line for a bit, but we’re reasonable. Bibles have priority. Pastors’ and missionaries’ Bibles have even more of a priority.

Step Four — Payment.

Yes, this is step four! We are happy to begin work on your project with no up-front payment in most cases, unless it involves leathers that must be special ordered.

The normal time sequence is that we would contact you a few days before anticipating being ready to ship. We would make payment arrangements then, to give your payment time for processing.

If you need to send a payment in the mail, let us know and we’ll contact you a bit earlier.

Methods of payment: For your convenience, we can use an easy, fast, and secure direct transfer method of payment through Intuit PaymentNetwork, and we also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, and checks or money orders drawn on a U.S. bank. If you live close enough and can stop by, we even accept cash!
