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

Welcome to the new 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. Since then, Mechling Bookbindery has grown into a full-scale manufacturing and shipping facility. For nearly two decades, the company has provided book printing, bookbinding and book restoration services.

With the acquisition of world-known Bookbinders Workshop in 2013, Mechling Bookbindery’s list of services and products expanded to include high quality leathers, bookbinding supplies and training videos for the bookbinding trade.
We moved the entire Bookbinders Workshop from New York City to Chicora, Pennsylvania in order to combine Bookbinders Workshop with Mechling Bookbindery. Our 9,000-square foot warehousing and shipping facility will accommodate unlimited growth and increased service and selection of goods for our customers.

Mechling Bookbindery will continue to provide high quality book printing, bookbinding and book restoration work as we have for the past 19 years, while offering a wider selection of leather types and colors for our book binding customers. Bookbinders Workshop will continue to provide exceptional leathers and bookbinding supplies as it has been doing for the past few years as well. But together both companies will now be operating from one distribution center.

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