Our thoughts on testimonials: We love getting notes from pleased customers, but don’t think you should put too much stock in them until you’ve visited the bindery. Bookbinders we’ve met include the enthusiastic novice, cynical entrepreneur, skillful misanthrope, and sweet incompetent, all with testimonials. So, for your discerning perusal, we present notes from pleased customers AND invite you to drop by the shop to examine our work.
