Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we get. Please contact us with any other questions that you might have in regards to ordering and we’ll be happy to assist.
The scriptures we use to bind our sets are purchased from the church Distribution Center. That means if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers the scriptures, we can use them. We currently use the 2013 Editions of the Standard Works as printed by the church.
When you order a new custom set of scriptures, we purchase the scriptures and hymn books from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Distribution Center to fulfill the order.
Currently, they only offer books with gold page gilding. Because of this, we need to go through an external and costly process to convert the gold page gilding into silver. We mail the books to an out of state vendor for the silver gilding to be done. Our vendor must cut off 1/16 of an inch from the page edges. As of result, we must start off with a book with no indexing tabs. With fresh gild-free page edges, our vendor then applies the silver gilding (a process that would resemble painting). Subsequently, our turnaround time for this process can take up to 8-12 weeks.
**Because we must start with an unindexed set of scriptures, the only available option for this process is the regular size. We are not currently offering new indexing tabs to be cut on the edges of the pages due to our vendor being very busy. Please contact us if you want new indexing tabs cut and are ok waiting longer for the completion.
Yes! We have a set of stamps that we feel are the most common, or we can make the stamps from scratch. We have Angel Moroni’s and other common church icons. There are additional charges based on the size of the stamp and the complexity of the art work requested. Names of the books on the spine, and the name on the front cover are included. We have several other colors of foil options available as well, in case you have a desire to emboss in red, purple, gold, silver, or pink. Please contact us to discuss those options.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns the copyright to that logo and have asked other entities to not use it on commercial products as they are not made by the church (read more here). We respect those laws and the wishes of the Church on the matter. The scriptures inside however do remain intact and therefore carry all standard features found in the Standard Works.
Because we use top quality leathers and demand fluctuates, we currently aim to complete orders within a 5-8 week lead time, but that is not a guaranteed time. Please call if lead time on orders is a concern. We are dedicated to improving methods and finding suppliers to improve on this time. However, we are more committed to quality than speed. Rush orders can be requested, there is an additional cost to rush your order, call to discuss your scenario. Silver gilding adds an additional 2-4 week lead time to an order due to the added process of re-gilding the gold scriptures. These are not guaranteed times, but rather an estimate. Times will vary based on demand and leather supply.
Not necessarily. Price is effected by size of the scriptures, gilding, and other custom requests. Color does not change the price, unless a color is requested that is not listed on our color page. Custom leather colors can be arranged and price will be determined based on special order. From time to time there will be special colors/styles but the price will be reflected should that be the case. Call if you have any questions.
Yes, but there is no change in price as a result. We will return any extra unused leather. We cannot bind in all leathers and sizes. So before purchasing a leather, please call to confirm that we are able to use the leather you want.
We can bind scriptures for any size scriptures that are offered through the church’s Distribution Center. The church offers a compact size (about 4″ x 6″), regular size (about 5″ x 7″), and large size (about 6″ x 9″). The church is discontinuing the compact size and so we will only be able to offer that size for a limited time until it is no longer in stock. Pricing is on our pricing page. For pricing of other sizes not listed, please contact us.
We bind scriptures that are offered through the church’s Distribution Center. With regular, compact, and large print gold gilded editions, they all come with tabs. The regular size is the only size that comes with the option of no indexing tabs too. If you want an un-tabbed gold gilded version, they are only available in the regular size.
All sales are final. Each set of scriptures are made to order. If there is a problem with your scriptures, we can discuss a remedy as we are dedicated to your satisfaction. If color is a concern, customers can request samples of the leathers prior to ordering so as to ensure colors and combinations prior to ordering.
Yes, we offer gift certificates. You can pre-pay for a set of scriptures (quad, triple and bible) or whatever you want to give as a gift. We issue a digital receipt that works as a gift certificate that you can print out and give to whomever you wish. When the recipient wants to redeem the gift certificate, enter the code we send to the customer and use that towards their scriptures. Gift certificates are good until redeemed.
We are an internet based company and don’t have a storefront. We are relocating to Florida. For the time being, we are not offering local pick up or drop off. Currently, you can mail your scriptures to us if having them rebound and we will be shipping all orders once completed. If you would like to physically see samples of leather feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the list of colors and your mailing address. We will mail up to 10 leather samples.
