About TheEloiseBindery

Sales 736
On Etsy since 2013

The Eloise Bindery

The Eloise Bindery is a small bookbinding studio based in Birmingham, UK, established in 2013 by Eloise Lee.

Eloise is passionate about creating beautifully bound books that are designed to be filled to the brim with ideas, memories and creativity. The books are made using a variety of traditional techniques, complimented by colourful, contemporary designs. The books are perfect for drawing, writing, painting, traveling and scrap-booking. Eloise specialises in exposed spine bindings, as she believes the stitching is too beautiful to hide!

Eloise also makes botanical stationery from her own photography and original cyanotype prints.

Eloise uses a range of techniques for book covers, including marbling, cyanotype, batik, hand dyeing, felting and print making, as well as using decorative papers sourced from around the world. All the books are cut, folded, glued, pressed and sewn by hand.

Eloise's product range includes sketchbooks, journals, notebooks, guest books, photo albums, prints, cards, gift tags, stickers, bookmarks and other stationery items. Her client base include artists, writers and prospective brides and grooms.

Eloise began bookbinding in 2009 by making photo books whilst studying Photography at university. She fell in love with the binding process, and finally found time to open her shop in 2013. Eloise also works as a medical photographer and spends her free time running up mountains and rock climbing. Eloise is inspired by her love for nature, the outdoors, mountains and the sea.

Shipping
COVID-19:

Orders are being shipped as normal, however many countries (including the UK) are experiencing severe shipping delays, especially in the USA.

I cannot guarantee international orders will arrive in time for Christmas. For UK customers - please order by the 17th December to give your order the best chance of arriving in time for Christmas, and the 7th December if you are ordering a bespoke book.

Due to this, please allow the following time for your order to arrive:

UK - 1 week
Europe - 2 weeks
Rest of World - 4 weeks

The following delivery estimates are based on royal Mail's standard shipping estimates, and do not take into account delays due to Covid-19.

'READY TO SHIP' ITEMS:

Ready to ship orders will be posted within 1-3 business days of receiving the order unless stated otherwise.

UK orders are sent by Royal Mail First Class. Orders over £30 are sent by Royal Mail First Class Signed For. Delivery takes approximately 1-2 working days.

European orders are sent by Royal Mail Standard International and take approximately 3-5 working days. Orders over £30 may be sent tracked.

Orders to the rest of the world are sent by Royal Mail Standard International and take approximately 5-7 working days. Orders over £30 may be sent tracked.

Delivery times are estimates by Royal Mail and can sometimes get delayed. International orders may sometimes get held up at customs which may delay your order.

'MADE TO ORDER' ITEMS:

Made to order items will be sent within the time frame shown on the item listing at the time of ordering, which can be anything between 1-8 weeks depending on current order levels. Rush order options are available, please see listing descriptions for full details.

All UK 'made to order' items will be sent via Royal Mail Signed For. All international 'made to order' items will be sent via Royal Mail International Tracked. The same delivery times apply as to the standard shipping above.

CUSTOMS / TAXES:

Please note that if you are an international buyer you may incur duties or taxes at customs. Any costs relating to this are the responsibility of the buyer.

PLASTIC:

I am working really hard to remove plastic from all of my packaging and this is something I'm very passionate about. The majority of my packaging is now completely plastic-free, with the exception of bubble-wrap lined mailing envelopes for some orders. Unfortunately as I ordered these in bulk several years ago, I am still working my way through these. As sizes run out they will be replaced with a plastic-free alternative (some sizes already have).
