The Nation's Leader in Quality Book Binding
& Post Press Services Since 1985

2 Nashua Court, Baltimore, MD 21221

Book binding is a craft that is hundreds of years old. It has seen the influence of many waves of new technology, making the binding process faster and more efficient. But while machines have brought binding into the 21st century, there is a tradition among book binders, indeed, among craftsman of any trade, that stretches throughout the centuries and technological advances that propel a craft.


As in all crafts, the human element is that which makes the difference. Attention to detail and fine-tuned works are traits that only the hand of an experienced craftsman can bring to the table. Here at Advantage, we’re devoted to the time-honored craft of book binding, and with nearly 30 years of experience, we provide the hand of experience needed to deliver a quality, fine-tuned product. We’re proud to say we’ve been recognized by the following organizations for our work over the years.
