Bookbinding NYC

Quality Bookbinding, Fast & Local

Our bookbinding services can help you create and deliver specialty books for businesses and events of all kinds. We can work with you to provide the perfect bound book to clients, customers, stakeholders or guests. Some examples of books we can bind and finish include bound reports, portfolios and corporate presentations, gifts for special events, albums and journals for business or nonprofit use, scripts and musical scores, and professional legal and medical bookbinding for records, journals, cases and other documents.

Bookbinding Services

Whether you’re having a book printed with us or elsewhere, our bookbinding services focus on getting the details just right, to create the high quality we’re known for. We offer a wide range of bookbinding and finishing styles so that you can customize your book project from start to end.

Options include foil stamping or embossing on covers and spines, rounding corners, and several kinds of binding like perfect binding, saddle stitch, wire-o, tape binding, and Chicago post.

There’s no limit on the number of books you can have bound, whether that’s two dozen or hundreds. Small boutique bookbinding projects are welcome, as are large corporate ones. Our printing capabilities are highly flexible to fit your bookbinding needs. Large formats are also possible, and we can print materials in black-and-white or full digital color.

 

Examples of our bookbinding work: 

100 page silk cover Chicago Post style bookbinding project for Visual Opinion, the student magazine of the School of Visual Arts.

A Wiro Bound book printed and bound for Hall & Partners. 

A perfect bound annual report, printed for NRDC

A saddle-stitched booklet we completed for MoMa

Types of Bookbinding

Softcovers can be perfect or square-bound, with covers of varying weight and size, depending on what fits your book the best. We also have coil bindings available if you are producing manuals, handbooks, cookbooks, scores and anything else that will be used frequently and needs to be able to lay flat when open. There are different weights and coil types available based on the size of your book when printed; talk to our experienced press team, and they’ll make sure you have the best type of binding for your project.

If your project includes smaller book needs, such as booklets, custom catalogs, or playbills, we have a fast and cost-effective saddle-stitching option available. 

Our Approach

At Thomas Group, our mission is to offer our customers the best quality in bookbinding and printing services they can find in NYC. When you pick up a book we’ve made, we want you to be impressed with the attention to detail we give to every job. And coming in neck-and-neck with that quality promise is our dedication to customer service. We will work quickly and efficiently on your behalf until your bookbinding project is in your hands, just the way you want it. To make sure your order gets where it needs to go on time, we offer courier delivery from our Manhattan location to anywhere in NYC’s five boroughs. If you’re outside the city, we’ll ship it fast, nationwide.

We’ve been in business since 1912 here and are in our fourth generation of family ownership, so we know just what it takes to do business at the speed of New York. We welcome you to read some of our customers’ reviews to find out more about what to expect from Thomas Group Printing, or contact us online anytime with questions.

Thomas Group Printing has been the most helpful and convenient printing service our company has ever worked with!! They helped us bring to life a high-quality print magazine that was delivered on-time and on-budget. They worked with us at every step of the way to ensure that we were taken care of and informed of the full printing production. If you are looking for a professional, reliable, and efficient printing service, I would highly recommend Thomas Group Printing.

We needed calendars made for a charity project my company was putting together, and now I'm confident we'll never need to look elsewhere when we do this again. Rory was immensely helpful every step of the way. As someone who really had no idea what I was asking for on a technical level, they were able to explain every detail to me in simple terms and we couldn't be more thrilled with the finished product! I could not recommend Thomas Group Printing any higher and I look forward to doing business with them again soon.

We have worked with Thomas Group Printing for a few years now and are so happy with the work they have done. The final product always looks beautiful and they work with us on our (small business) deadlines (aka always last minute.) It is always an incredibly professional experience and we highly recommend them to anyone that has printing needs.

We've been working with these guys for a couple of years and have no plans of changing print agencies. They're super responsive and produce quality results all the time. From simple postcards, to full books, to delicate tissue paper - they do everything. Very easy to work with and they probably have one of the most competitive prices in NYC.

From the start of my project to after its completion, Thomas Group Printing impressed me every step of the way.

Love working with Thomas Group. I have worked with them multiple times and just wrapped up a book and postcard project with them – they are gorgeous. The print quality for the images was the best we've ever achieved. Both pieces went over well with everyone, but the book stood out and our COO even took it and used it as an example to the whole company for what a premium marketing material is and how valuable it is to the organization. They are lovely to work and always flexible and helpful.

We had a great experience working with Thomas Group Printing! We ordered 200+ 11x17 spiral-bound copies of a white paper/research study that we release every year. The paper quality, color printing, and binding options were great. Originally, we had contacted 10-20 different printers to find the right fit for us and the TGP was the best option. Their customer service was also lovely - Rory followed-up regularly, was patient as we made various decisions about binding and quantity, and helped us create an amazing piece that we are proud of.

We are a small design firm, and just started using the Thomas Group a few months ago, after some disappointing results with our longtime printers. We couldn't be happier with our switch to the Thomas Group. Rory and Glen are extremely communicative and accommodating, and are able to work quickly on tight deadlines, while keeping a very high level of quality. We are excited to continue our relationship with them, and would recommend them to anyone.

I had an urgent request to print brochures for a conference, and Rory and his team were super fast responding over emails to accommodate my request. Not only Rory printed the brochures within couple of hours, they did the extra mile and delivered those to the hotel I was staying in. The brochures came out exactly what I was expecting. Next time I need a printing service, this is the place for sure.

Printing is a tough business. A lot can go wrong. I know, I have been part of this industry for the better part of 40 years. I have worked with The Thomas Group for 22 of those years and can honestly say they are the most reliable, customer-centric, quality conscious printer there is. Their pricing and turnaround are second to none. And most importantly, they will NEVER let you down.

I can not say enough great things out about this printer. A level of service I would have never expected in NYC. We had a rush project that required in live proofs (delivered to my hotel) and print in under 6 hours. Program guides, name badges and event tickets. Not only did they get it done but it was beautiful, top quality and delivered!

We had been using a printer in the mid west, assuming it was cheaper than printing here in NYC, for many years, but we got a competitive quote from Thomas Group, and decided to try them. We have been THRILLED about working with them. They make everything simple and straightforward--from communicating with them, to submitting files, to getting work delivered to us. They do a beautiful job, and they get the job done on time. What a relief to have found them!
