Shaw & Sons offer a traditional hand-crafted binding service for minutes and records. Individual requirements can be met as regards style and materials to ensure that documents can be retained securely for posterity. Our council minute binding service represents particularly good value for money.
Options include quarter, half and full bound styles, gold blocking, marbled end-papers, sprinkled edges, reinforced and cut indexes, marker ribbons, etc. However, more modest specifications are also available that are especially suitable for those with a restricted budget, e.g. thesis binding.
To discuss your requirements and obtain a no-obligation quote, call Shaw's on 01322 621100.

For over 250 years, Shaw & Sons have been providing local authorities with a secure system for the binding of council minutes. For convenient long-term storage of your minutes, we can fasten your loose documents into book format and "bind" them into a hard-back case.
Our prices start from just £93.00 plus VAT for a single volume, full case-bound in leather-finish book cloth, including foil blocking of your council's details on the face and/or spine.
