A spotlight on Bespoke Bookplates

Our bespoke bookplates are designed by hand, especially for the recipient, incorporating details about their life - the ultimate personalised rubber stamp. They make a thoughtful and very special gift.

I thought I'd share some of the designs I've done over the years to show what is possible. Every design is unique so these are only examples but should give a good flavour.

For the first example I've included the information the customer gave me - he ordered it for himself with some accrued birthday money and was thrilled with the result.

I am a person that is not easily impressed but I was utterly overwhelmed and delighted by the bookplate I ordered. I am undergoing some long-term studies, so am frequently purchasing new books, and am proud to stamp the Ex Libris design into every volume. The quality of the design is first class and beyond what I imagined when I placed the order.

We don't offer a proofing service but if you want something specific to be included just say - providing us with pictures of pets or special places can help make the design even more personal.

We usually say to allow 3 weeks from ordering for a bookplate to be dispatched. If you need one quicker just drop us an email and we'll help wherever possible.
Before a bookplate is sent it is checked, test prints made and then carefully gift-boxed ready for the recipient. If you're ordering for someone else, we'll always include a test print with explantatory notes outside of the gift box so you can see what you're giving (and one inside too!).
