Book Repair and Restoration in Salem, Oregon Salem, Oregon

This cemetery ledger from Christ Church Winnetka in Illinois was literally falling apart. I was able to restore the ledger to a usable condition which will allow access to vital records for years to come.

These pictures, amazing as they are, can’t truly show the incredible work and loving care you put into this project. Thank you LouJean, and please use us as a reference. I will happily share our experience with anyone who will listen.”

—John White, Christ Church Winnetka


  • There is a $75 minimum charge for any book repair and restoration.  I cannot give you a cost estimate by email or phone—I must be able to examine the book in person. If you are in the Salem Oregon area I am happy to meet with you to take a look at your book. You can also mail your book to me for evaluation. (Please contact me for instructions on doing this.)
  • A note about bibles: I can usually recover your worn study bible—leather or imitation leather—but I do not have the equipment for hot foil type. So: no gold lettering or names. Sorry.
