Hand-Made Book by sedruck.de

Were We to Manufacture Cars, The Hand-Made Book Would Be Our Showcase Model

The online printing and binding service sedruck.de offers various book binding options. The hand-made hardcover book is our best quality product.

When crafting hand-made books, all printed pages are glued or sewn together, neatly cut on three sides and then bound into a linen cover. All our book covers are manufactured in our inhouse book bindery. You can also choose to design an individual cover print, which is then gloss laminated as a cover. For this option please select printed cover.    

For hand-made books we may need up to five working days.

Sewn Book Block - Thread Sewing for Perfect Lay Flat Binding

When ordering a custom book you can choose a sewn book block, an option not available for our normal hardcover bindings. The thread sewing technique allows a perfect lay flat binding. Thread sewing also decreases signs of wear on often used books.

Choose from four different colours for embossing (gold, silver, black, white). We also offer two different fonts for your personal combination. "Helvetica" is a straight, sans serif font, similar to the font "Arial". Our font "Diethelm" has serifs and is similar to the font "Times New Roman". 

We also offer special embossing stamps with your individual design: university logo, company logo, wedding bands, blind embossing and many more. Further information on custom product options.


Individual Embossing for Hand made Hardcover Book Covers

Apart from the usual foil stamping for our hardcover books, we also offer individual embossings e.g. logos for our hand made hardcover books.

You can send us your logo as PDF file and we will forward it to an engraver.

Please send us your logo as black and white template. The black parts will be embossed. Maximum size of the logo is 6x6cm and the additional costs amount to approximately 50.00€. Usually we receive the embossing stamp within 5 working days. All in all your order will take about minimum 7 days to process, excluding shipping (1-3 working days, depending on shipping method). We are happy to send the embossing stamp to you or store it for further orders.


Lamination for Hardcover Imprints

As an alternative to foil stamping you have the possibility to choose a printed hardcover. A gloss laminated cover is used instead of a leather or linen cover. The cover is printed with any design and then protected through lamination.
