Personalisation

Personalisation a bespoke service personalised gifts from Bookshell Bindery

"Let us transform your gift into a unique and lasting keepsake. The choice is yours – an anniversary date, a special place, even pet names ... we won't judge!"

 

Bespoke personalisation:

When you opt for our bespoke personalisation service not only will we personalise your item using beautiful embossed gold foil, but we'll do it the good old-fashioned way – using skilled craftsmanship, a discerning eye and our beloved vintage hot foil embossing machine. It's fiddly but we love the process!

Need inspiration?
Stuck for what to write or need a bit of inspiration for your personalised message? Take a look at our Pinterest board, personalisation ideas. 

Our process
We use letterpress printing and a hot foil stamping machine to personalise our products. It’s a skilled, manual process that involves many stages but, and we’re sure you’ll agree, the intricate end result is definitely worth it. It’s a fascinating technique that dates back to the 15th century.

How to order
Simply browse our products and when you've found the perfect gift, select from the personalisation options listed on that page. Easy! If you have any problems at all please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.

Custom cover pictures
