Welcome to Hipwell Bookbinders

Graphic Bookbinding for designers

Our primary concern is the accurate interpretation and imaginative development of graphic ideas.

Loose Leaf

A general term referring to a system of binding that allows for the adding or removing of pages. Lever Arch, Postlock, O and D ring binders as well as interscrews are some examples.

Brochure

When it comes to brochures, almost anything is achievable! We have such a varied selection of binding styles, thread colours, cloth colours and techniques that we can use to produce a bespoke brochure for your business.

Case bound

Often referred to as hard-back binding. A cover is a produced using either paper or cloth over board and attached to the book block via the endpapers.

Binders

A general term referring to a system of binding that allows for the adding or removing of pages. Lever Arch, Postlock, O and D ring binders as well as interscrews are some examples.

Sewing

Our sewing department has a range of sewing machines to offer a unique visual impact, with a sewing style to meet your design requirements. We pride ourselves on being able to produce high quality sewing using vintage and rare machines, working to specifications which are not always achievable on some modern day sewing machines.

Board Book

Often likened to children’s books, where each page is a board. Construction can vary depending upon specification.

Menu Covers

Bespoke hardback covers to take single leaf or folded inserts for menus, wine lists and bill wallets. Extra features may include pockets inside to hold cards, pen loops, elastic loops, metal corner fixings, rivets and hinges. These covers can be foil blocked and/or de-bossed to add that personal touch to your café, restaurant or hotel

Set in distinctively rural surroundings, Hipwell Bookbinders has established a very particular reputation among graphic designers. During the last 3 decades the workshop has incorporated contemporary graphics into books, brochures, ring binders, slip cases, portfolios, boxes and presentation cases. The individual effects achieved are realised though a wide variety of binding techniques and materials. The possibilities obtainable have to be seen to be fully appreciated, even by designers fully versed in print and paper. We welcome you to visit our workshop and see our large range of samples as well as the machines in production.
