Book Repair Tips

We stock a wide range of tapes and adhesives to help you perform effective repairs to books and paper products. We cater for library, home and conservation use. Always try techniques out on a less valuable item before restoring your precious collector's items. A great starting point for anybody who is interested in repairs is 'Book Repairs for Booksellers' by J. Godsey. We stock this book and it is an invaluable reference work.

Repairs To Collector's Books

When repairing paper collectables it is always important to get a result that is invisible, or very close to it. The starting point for any repairs to torn pages, dust jackets etc is Filmoplast P. This is an archival quality tissue tape which when applied to paper surfaces becomes almost invisible. A very similar product is Document Repair Tape. Both these tapes are non-yellowing, and are suitable for long term archival repairs. Both can be safely removed when heat is applied to the paper surface.

Filmoplast P90 is used for more structural repairs where a stronger tape is required. This is a white tape and is great for hinge repairs and fixing the inside of torn jackets. Flexi-Bind Book Adhesive is a very useful product. It is a clear water based adhesive which remains fliexible when dry. This makes it ideal for repairing hinges, re-inserting pages and fixing split spines. No home restorer should be without it!

Repairs To Library Books

An invisible repair is less important for library repairs. It is much more necessary to provide a result that will withstand the rigours of library use. Brodart Clear Tape and 3M Scotch Book Tape are ideal for all general purpose library repairs. Both are non yellowing, peel resistant clear tapes which provide a robust, long lasting repair for all types of books. Black Cloth Repair Tape is great for fixing damaged spines on both hardbacks and paperbacks. Tyvek Super Hinge Tape will fix all types of hinges and joins.
