Imitation Leather Bookbinding

We focus on providing several different materials to choose from when binding your book. These options include:


  • Genuine leather
  • Bonded leather
  • Wintan leather (Recycled leather, made of 85% leather fibres)
  • PVC
  • Novalite
  • Printed covers
  • Canvas
  • Denim
  • Imitation leather


Imitation leather is especially useful for those who wish to avoid using animal derived materials but still wish to have the leather look and feel for their book.

Some books, such as law reports are traditionally bound using leather, so imitation leather provides a great alternative in such cases.

Book cover colours

Furthermore, we offer a wide variety of book cover colours when choosing the imitation leather as your preferred material.

We have 8 different colours to choose from which include royal blue to emerald green, chocolate brown, plum, wine red, black, navy blue and even pink.

These colours offer you the opportunity to completely customise the way we bind your book.

In addition, our range of genuine leather colours also offer you a variety of choices ranging from black to the more traditional tan or light brown.

Bookbinding methods

We use one of 4 different methods of binding which include:


  • Cold glue binding
  • Full case binding
  • Hot melt binding
  • Section sewing


The right method will be selected according to the type of book you are having bound.

Finishing touches

Using various methods, we also engrave the relevant details such as title, logo, name, date or volume on either the spine or the front of the book.
