Hardcase Bound Magazines

1 volume (12 monthly issues) A4 (between 10 – 12 inches) eg British Railways Illustrated - £22.00

1 volume (12 monthly issues) A5 (up to 10 inches) eg Railway Observer -  £21.00

Perfect Bound Magazines that require hand-sewing eg Railway Modeller  - £6.00/£7.00 supplement on above prices

Prices include up to 5 lines of lettering per volume on the spine  as per the photograph. Extra lettering/gold lines on spine 50p per line.  Lettering on the front incurs a small extra charge.

On occasion magazines may need extra attention to prepare them for sewing - eg individual trimming, sticking etc.  Sometimes with very old magazines where the staples have rusted a lot of extra time and care will need to be taken to prepare these for sewing (eg early volumes of Railway Magazine).   In these cases there will be a small additional charge per volume.

We are always happy to advise if you think your particular magazine may fall into this category.

Bound books are heavy and we have tried to keep our prices competitive.  Please ask for a quote if you are not sure of the cost before sending in your magazines to be bound.

We use FedEx for delivery of large parcels over 5 kilos. We have found them to be an excellent courier and as the parcels have to be signed for we need an attended address and telephone number where they are to  be delivered.

If you are out during the day, we can arrange for them to be delivered to a work address/neighbour etc. just let us know in advance.


It may be possible to arrange collection by FedEx but this is only possible if you are able to print a label (pdf attachment) which will be emailed to you no more than 24 hours before the collection. Please contact us for more information.
