Luxury hand made menu covers - We specialise in bespoke binders and covers where quality is the overriding criteria. Large choice of cover materials and colours - As well as our standard range of hard wearing and attractive buckram book cloths, we can also provide options of faux leather and other materials. In any size - We appreciate that menus and wine lists require different sizes and formats and as each order is hand cut and hand made, we can accommodate any size or shape. No minimum order - Most of our day to day work is making one-off binders and boxes for very important presentations or life events and as such we have no minimum order. Bespoke to you - Just like a bespoke tailored outfit, we make just what you want. As you can see from above, you tell us want and we make it to the highest standard there is. How to proceed - Unlike or other products, menus and wine lists often consist of multiples and as such we prefer to quote on an individual basis. Please contact us at email@example.com with an idea of quantities and personalisation requirements. Above, you will see tabs giving outlines of what we can do as well as a rough guide to prices.

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). - The cost of this metal die is £30.00. 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 example you want your logo in the centre of the cover, then the words MENU in the bottom right, 2 dies will be made incurring a second die charge.
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.
- What are my personalisation options? There are 5 options. They are: - Blind Deboss - Heavy impression with no colour. - Colour Block Foiled - Light impression with colour foil infill. - 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. - 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.
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 you can place a card or image. - UV Printed - A name or logo is colour printed onto the cover. - For more information. Our guide to personalisation can be found on this page here, Guide To Personalisation.
Internal Pockets - We can also include a variety of inner cover pockets
What is the lead time? Between receiving full payment or a pre agreed deposit, the delivery time is roughly 1 - 2 weeks. Please note we will require confirmation of both the order and the artwork before we can start production of your menus. How is delivery made? We use DHL. Is there a minimum order? There is no minimum order. Can you make custom sizes? Yes we can make whatever size you want.
Each order we make is individually hand made, from scratch.
We start with a large piece of greyboard, a couple of rolls of material and from there, it's individually custom made to your requirements.
Our outer covers consists of two pieces of 2mm thick board, laminated together, making the outer cover 4mm thick. The inner cover is another 1.5mm thick. Why? Because it's all about the quality, strength and longevity of the Menu Cover.
