About Us

Quantum Bookbinders was set up by Richard Hughes in November 2009. We are based in Clevedon, Bristol, 2 minutes from junction 20 of the M5. Richard had recently left W H Ware after 28 years of service.

We have invested in a Muller Martini Binding Line which was commissioned and operational at the beginning of November 2009. We would be pleased to quote for your binding needs, whether perfect bound, burst bound or sewn bookblocks on hot-melt adhesive and PUR (polyurethane) adhesive. We can also offer advice on folded impositions, gutters, trims and cover lay-downs prior to printing to eliminate any costly re-prints. We have the capability of binding up to 7,000 paperbacks per hour. We are sure you will be pleased with our quality workmanship and value for money service.
