Our Company

History | Skills & Expertise | Custom Design


Distinctive Bookbinding has been a source for fine quality bookbinding and leather goods for over thirty years. We create and design exquisite hand-bound books and leather products to enhance your presentations or accentuate your life. Our products are created in the United States, using expertise and skills acquired from the tradition of Italian leatherwork. Our craftsmen are dedicated to providing excellent workmanship and emphasize attention to detail.

Our leather presentation boxes, certificate holders and portfolios, have been custom made for and appreciated by many U.S. Presidents, Heads of State, and foreign dignitaries. We take great pride in designing our products to meet our clients' needs, and we offer numerous custom design possibilities to create a lasting impression for your business or family occasion.

Since our founding in 1964, we have provided antique book restoration and conservation services. By working closely with our clients, we help them determine what direction to take with their book or treasured article. We can maintain the integrity of the book by expertly restoring it back to its original glory, or delicately removing the cover and replacing it with a new one.

Skills & Expertise

Distinctive Bookbinding has been a leader in bookbinding craftsmanship for over thirty years. We have committed ourselves to providing you with the finest handmade leather goods and bookbinding services available. Our products are made to our clients' expectations and handled with care, so that they may be appreciated and admired for years to come.

Our craftmen are experts in their profession, and honor the role that they play in creating new products and preserving treasured books. They have served long apprenticeships before they design and create products on their own.

The tradition of hand bookbinding has been passed down for centuries. We take great pride in offering these traditions to our clients today. We work with both leather and cloth materials and offer a variety of embossing or stamping options. We are capable of handling both large and small projects, and we have enough craftmen to finish each order promptly, without jeopardizing quality.

Custom Design

We pride ourselves on being able to meet our clients' needs, managing, creating, and designing the products that they have envisioned. We very rarely find that we are unable to fulfill a special request. We usually are able to offer our customers more options than they had originally considered, creating new design possibilities while meeting each customer's unique needs.
