What is your turnaround time?
Being a boutique business, we value craftsmanship over high production. Each item is carefully made to the highest standards & as such, our products take time to create. Our standard turnaround time for up to 9 Custom Products is 4 to 5 weeks. Our turnaround time for orders of 10 or more Custom Products can take 8-10 weeks to fulfill.

Please keep our turnaround times in mind when placing your order.
What type of materials do you use?
We source our supplies from a select variety of professional bookbinding retailers & have spent many hours testing & choosing the finest materials. All of our folios & boxes are handmade using acid-free, high density book board of varying ply. Our PVA adhesive is pH neutral, acid-free, & non-yellowing, ensuring the integrity of each Lux Bindery design. The fabrics & assorted satin ribbons we offer have all been chosen for durability & aesthetic.

How do I order a Studio Die?
A Studio Die can be ordered here. After placing your order, you will be contacted via email to request your logo or design file.
What type of file should I send for my Studio Die?
We require a black & white vector file (.ai or .eps) for all of our Studio Dies. If you do not have a vector file, we’d be happy to convert your logo for an additional fee. Upon adding a Studio Die to your cart, please select "Yes" when asked if you'd like us to convert your logo. You will be contacted via email to request your logo or design file.
What logos work best for imprinting?
Logos with clear delineation & continuity of size work best for imprinting. Typically, logos with fine detail & shading cannot be reproduced on our products for the desired result. Additionally, the choice of fabric can be a determining factor in how your logo will imprint. For example, fabrics with a tighter weave (i.e. Cream, Silver, Pewter) can be imprinted with finer detail than a fabric with a coarse structure (i.e. Cotlin, Oatmeal, Gray Buckram).
What is the standard font you use for imprinted text?
For imprinting text, we use the serif font, Edinburgh, in 22pt.
What fabrics do not blind imprint well?
Blind imprinting is a subtle way to imprint a logo or text on our products without the use of foil. Fabrics with thicker weaves or darker colors do not blind imprint well. These fabrics include Cotlin, Oatmeal, Gray Buckram, Black, & Linen.
