    Awesome collection btw
    Thanks. Mine were done with a local place called Shaffer Bindery, in Salt Lake City. These books are no frills, just issues bound. Nothing special.

    A place to go online would be http://www.herringandrobinsonbookbinders.com which takes orders from all over the country and does, in my opinion, the best comic binding work. I will probably do everything through them now. They do die stamping and custom covers and really seem to have a good feel for this and they do sewn bindings.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. I'm new at this, obviously lol. Sewn bindings would be the best option?

    Depends. Newer books tend to print close to the gutter, older books not so much. Non-sewn you would lose like 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch, depending upon binder.

    I've had a few bound and am looking to do more and generally speaking sewn is better. The only advantage to glued is that it may be cheaper. Having a sewn binding allows the book to open up all the way. This helps it to lay flat for easier reading and also prevents any loss of the images in the gutter of the book. That is especially helpful for 2 page spreads and any book that has word balloons or images close to the center.

    As mentioned by Joshua, H&R are good and I would also check out http://www.houchenbindery.com/comicbooks.htm for comparison.

    marvelmasterworks forum has a pretty great binding thread there as well.

    Hello all. Trying to get some traction on a shelf/display advice thread here.


    If anyone is interested in recommending they're preferred shelving system or homemade set-up, please do! Display advice is also welcome of course or if you have a website you frequent for supplies or storage. Be as detailed as possible though so it can be used as reference. Thanks for your time.

    Thanks, finally got it sorted after I moved place. The page I love, from the GLC Blackest Night book. I've got two consecutive pages from the Kyle Rayner GL run in the 90s where he teams up with Green Arrow but I need a frame for them. Love your set up too, very impressive. Is it one entire room dedicated to your collection?
