How to Purchase Bookbinding Equipment

Purchase Direct From Me

If you are interested in the purchase of any of the products on this site, please contact me here with the name of the product(s) and your shipping address so I can include shipping in the quote. Depending on equipment I have in stock, I am usually able to ship within a few days.

Prices for direct purchase are listed on each product page and do not include shipping.   I also ship internationally, depending on the country.

I try to combine shipping on multiple items as much as possible so save shipping costs.   However, it depends on what they are. Certain combinations must ship separately to insure your equipment arrives undamaged condition, especially the lead press board.

Sales Tax

All purchases shipped within the state of California will be charged 9% sales tax.  If you pick up your purchase at my shop in Lodi, California, sales tax is 7.75%.


Preferred method of payment is by PayPal.  If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still pay the PayPal invoice with your credit card.  I have no way to process credit cards over the phone, so if you want to pay with a credit card, PayPal is the only way to do that.  I don’t see any of your information, only that you paid; totally safe and secure.

If, for some reason, you don’t want to use either method above, you can also mail a money order or cashier’s check, but it takes a longer to get your equipment because of time in the mail and check processing.

Personal and commercial checks are accepted on a case by case basis, and equipment will not ship until check has cleared my bank.

Order Processing

There is no way to process purchases through this website
To initiate a purchase, you need to contact me on the purchase page.
I will then send you a quote. 
If this meets your satisfaction, you let me know and I will send you a PayPal invoice, which you pay with one of the methods above.

Or you can just let me know you want to purchase an item.
I then send you a quote, along with a PayPal invoice.
You pay, I ship.

International Orders

Yes, I can ship most of my products internationally to select locations and can provide an advanced quote if you provide your city, postal code, and country.

NOTE:   Customs and duty payments are the responsibility of the buyer and I have no way to estimate what they will be.

Custom Orders

I am able to modify most of what I sell to meet your different requirements.  On custom orders, I require 1/2 paid in advance and the balance plus shipping paid on completion before the order ships.  Make your request on the contact page.
