Bespoke Service

Personalised Wedding Guest Books, Memory Books, Journals & Sketchbooks

An individually handmade leather book makes the perfect special gift and is a thoughtful way to commemorate a special occasion. My bespoke service is a popular option for personalised Wedding Guest Books and Memory Books and lets you tailor a Journal or Sketchbook to your exact requirements.

I've been making bespoke books for individuals, couples, families, organisations and businesses all over the world for over 10 years and I'd love to help you, too.

What's available: Choose your combination of leather and thread colours and make your book even more special by requesting a dedication printed on the title page, such as your names or a quotation. Explore your options here or scroll down for inspiration. There is currently no extra charge for personalisation.

How to order:  Once you've selected your options - or if you need help choosing - email me with your choices: info@boundbyhand.co.uk Please mention your deadline and the country you'd like your book delivered to. My lead time is 4 weeks plus shipping, but rush orders can often be accommodated!

What happens next: Once we've finalised the details I'll create a listing for you to purchase on this website. After receiving payment I order your materials, slot you into my production schedule and email you a sample of your titlepage for your approval or one round of amends. Once I've begun work on your book I'll update you with a likely delivery date and you'll get an email with tracking code when your order goes out for delivery.

Queries: Contact Green the bookbinder by email info@boundbyhand.co.uk or cal +44 (0)7748 759371. I'm very happy to help you select your options or answer any queries.
