Blissetts draws on over a 90-year heritage to combine traditional binding skills with progressive print equipment, excellent customer service and a range of binding and restoration services unbeaten in the UK including making yearbooks and photobooks, thesis binding, wedding albums, design & print as well as fine binding and restoration.
Blissetts’ strength lies in its ability to integrate age-old, artisanal skills of bookbinding with modern technology and computer software. Its dedicated workforce brings Great British craftsmanship to the public at affordable prices direct from the bindery. Due to the fact that Blissetts offers such a range of services under one roof it means it can offer the most cost effective service for its customers. Moreover, Blissetts offers more choices of cover material for notebooks, albums and other bespoke books than many of the well-known stores.
The company, which was established in 1920 in London by Frederick Blissett, is now run by third generation, trained binder, Gary Blissett, who is joined in the company by his son, Chris who mainly oversees the photobooks service but also helps to oversee the bindery & print areas as a whole.
Blissetts is the largest specialist bookbinder in the south of England, employing 50 staff overall. Blissetts prides itself on its quality and customer service and every member of the company will strive to exceed customer expectations.
