Can you judge a book by its cover? What you don’t know can cost you money!

At Denver Bookbinding Company we know that your school money does not grow on a tree planted in the school yard. We can help you stretch those dollars further in the book budget by rebinding those textbooks that the information does not change over time.

The average cost for buying a textbook is $125.00 in a publishers binding, whether that is a paper based hard cover or even a paperback style.

The average cost for rebinding for educational organizations is $15.00 each. (We also rebind text books for individuals, but that is a separate process. See this page for details.) Quite a SAVINGS for a much better product.

We know that our binding lasts for multiple school years based upon our customer feedback because we bind in a library canvas. The cover is a solid color, but it is strong enough to withstand the usage of a normal student over the course of the school year. To see a palette of colors available, please click here.

Do not be fooled by a lower cost binding because what you may be purchasing is a paper based material that looks like library canvas but wears poorly over the short term and then you are spending your school dollars twice because the binding has failed. We use heavy weight book board to make the cover even stronger.

Please use the Bindery Checklist (below) when sending in your textbooks so you get back what you send in for rebinding.
