Let Perma-Bound Rebind Your Old Textbooks
Are your old textbooks worn, even falling apart? You can get years of additional use out of your old textbooks with Perma-Bound's rebinding service. If you have textbooks whose bindings are damaged, but whose text blocks you want to save, you can send them to us, and we'll rebind them using our durable Perma-Bound binding.
We will rebind books* and return them, in most cases, within 60 days of receipt. If you're not sure your books are suitable for rebinding, call us first, toll-free, at 1-800-637-6581.
Why rebind your old textbooks?
There are several possible reasons:
- To repair volumes that have been harmed due to vandalism and normal wear and tear.
- To save books that would be too expensive to replace new.
- To preserve current library or curriculum stock so you can allocate funding to additional new volumes, instead of merely replacing old ones.
The bottom line is that Perma-Bound's rebinding service can help your library or classroom save money in the long run by preserving your existing stock and freeing up your budget for new additions, rather than replacements.
