  • Probably for no other industry, durability is must be one of the main concerns when deciding on a cover. We offer a wide range of Buckram book cloths, which is a cloth covered in an acrylic coating making it durable and cleanable. We also offer good quality faux leathers.
    There is no extra charge for using more than one colour or material on your covers. Our full colour and fabric swatch can be viewed here, H&Co Colour Swatch.

    If you do not find what you are looking for on our swatch page, we also have access to other cover materials which can be found on our suppliers website here Winter & Company.
    We strongly urge you to request fabric samples from us if you are in any doubt of your choice.
  • A quick over view of how it works - If we are colour foiling or blind (no colour) debossing, the first thing we need to do, is get a metal (magnesium) die stamp, made of what ever is being placed on the cover (as per the picture below).
    metal tooling die for personalised menus
    -  The cost of this metal die is £50.00. Once this has been made, we then charge a 'stamping charge' per item/cover. The stamping amount we charge depends upon the number of covers being stamped.
    -  If for instance you want your logo in the centre of the cover, then the words MENU in the bottom right, that will be 2 dies. 

    If we want our logo foiled or blind stamped, how does it work? There are 2 options open to you regarding your personalisation. Either we can set out your wording using one of our house fonts, which can be found here.
    Alternatively, you can send us finished and ready to use artwork in the form of an .ai or .eps file. Our finished artwork specification can be found here. 

    Where. Your personalisation can be placed anywhere you like. 

    Can I have more than one? Yes, you can have as many personalisations as you like, but each will require a new die and therefore an extra charge  

    What are my personalisation options? There are 5 options. They are:
    -  Blind Deboss - Heavy impression with no colour.
    Blind deboss example
    -  Colour Block Foiled - Light impression with colour foil infill.
    colour foil example
    -  Plaque with Name Foiled - As above, an area is inset into the cover, but we create a plaque and foil or blind deboss a name or logo.
    example of an inset foiled plaque
    -  
    Cut Out Window With Logo Foiled - A window (of any shape) is cut into the cover and a name/logo is foiled or blind debossed within.
    Inset window example

    The other options that do not require making a metal die are:
    -  Leaving A Recessed Space - An area of any size is inset into the cover where upon you can place a card within the space.
    Inset space example
    -  UV Printed - A name or logo is colour printed onto the cover.

      Easily personalised - The second key is that is can be personalised so easily and so effectively using a blind deboss as an effective way of making it distinctively yours.

      Easy to use - Put two pages in it, or put in two hundred pages in, it's just a matter of unscrewing the post caps, taking off the cover and changing the pages. If it needs to be larger then just change the length of the posts.

      In any size or format (smaller than A4) - We appreciate that menu's and wine list require different sizes and formats and as each order is hand cut and hand made, we can accommodate any size or shape. The largest size we offer for this Menu is to fit and A4 page.

        • While we would love to justify the price of these covers as mainly down to the fact that they are individually hand made, a considerable percentage is down to the cost (and the quality) of the leather. We use top grain, 3 - 4mm thick, Italian vegetable tanned, tumble finished hides - more information on our leather can be found on this page page here (but the short story is, we use the best quality thick leather available).
