Bookbinding Details
If you would like to have any papers bound into a book, contact me with the number of pages, approximate dimensions, any style specifications, and location. I will respond with any other questions I have and further contact info for shipping or delivering materials. 
 
If you live outside the Portland area you may need to ship the pages to me. You do not need to send any materials such as cover boards, cover papers, endpapers, or decorative pieces unless you would like to. I will buy my own materials according to your specifications, which is covered by the cost of the project.
