New Creations Bookbinding
American Made Since 2013
I have been binding books for twelve years. Over the years I have had many people ask me to teach them the craft, so I made it my goal to make available to anyone who wants to learn the art of hand-binding books. My desire for people to create high-quality, heirloom memories coupled with my desire to work from home and be a blessing to others. I got started with hiring a company to design a website and shoot an instructional video. I even converted my garage into a functional workplace to build the jigs and assemble the kits. As I grow, I want to be able to offer handmade, American, artistic papers for the bookbinding kits. I hope to shoot more videos on various medias that I enjoy and want to see others enjoy, and I would like to keep the business family owned and operated.
What makes your business unique?In my research I have found that the available bookbinding kits provide only the materials to bind a single book. Because I offer a video, the jigs, and the basic bookbinding elements, any number of books can be made. There is also an advantage in that the books may be made from various materials of any desired size, and any number of pages may be put into a book. Besides this, everything in my kit is high-quality and made in America, and the process is timeless and ensures the books will last for many generations.
What's the best business advice you've received?I was told by a very successful businesswoman, "Your business is your baby; grow it slow, grow it wisely, and keep it made in America."
