About Bookbinders Workshop
The World's Finest Leather & Bookbinding Supplies

Welcome to Bookbinders Workshop!

Al and Marla Mechling’s passion for researching their family history led to collecting and rebinding old county histories, which developed into a garage-based rebinding business in 1995. Their new-found company, Mechling Bookbindery, quickly outgrew its boundaries and was moved to a full-scale manufacturing and shipping facility. For the past two decades, the company has been providing book printing, bookbinding and book restoration services.

The Mechlings acquired the world-known Bookbinders Workshop in 2013,
moving it from New York City to Chicora, Pennsylvania. The list of services and products expanded to include high quality leathers, bookbinding supplies and tools, and training videos for the bookbinding trade. Together both companies now operate from one distribution center, which is able to accommodate unlimited growth and increased service and selection of goods for their customers.

Our goal is to provide our customers with exceptional personalized service and a combined expertise in book binding and book printing while offering the world’s highest quality leathers and bookbinding supplies and tools. We are prepared to successfully uphold that goal, and look forward to continuing to serve you.
