These are some of the questions that we are frequently asked. If you have a question that is not answered here, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-319-0067 or 866-483-3830.
Do you have bookplates for authors to sign?
Yes, we provide bookplates to many authors to use for book signings or to send to readers as a promotional item. The least expensive possibility is one of the border designs in the non-personalized category, M752NP, M758NP or N100NP. These designs leave plenty of room for an autograph and personal note from the author. Alternatively, many writers order one of our border designs and have their name printed at the top or bottom. For a more personalized look, we often print bookplates for authors with custom artwork, such as the artwork from the jacket cover of the book. Feel free to call or e-mail for more information.
Many of your designs have the words “ex libris” on them. What does this mean?
“Ex libris” is Latin, meaning literally “of books” or “from the library of.” The term has been associated so closely with bookplates that many people refer to bookplates as “ex libris.”
How are the bookplates packaged?
Orders of 50, 100, 200 and 300 bookplates are packaged in attractive gift boxes. Our gift boxes have a white cardboard bottom and an attractive white cardboard top. An example is shown in the images on our home page. Larger orders are usually shipped in a white corrugated cardboard box. If you would like gift boxes with your larger orders, please let us know in the comments section when you have placed your order.
I am ordering bookplates as a gift. Will cost information be included with the order?
We do not include billing or payment information with the bookplates when they are shipped.
My order is being shipped directly to the gift recipient. Can I have a gift note included?
Yes, when requested, we include a gift tag on the top of the bookplate box. You will find a section in the ordering process which allows you to specify the name and gift message desired.
Do you have designs that are not shown on the website?
Yes, we have an archive of quite a few bookplate designs from the Antioch Company that are no longer in print. If you are looking for a particular design, perhaps one you had years ago, contact us and we will see if we can locate it and re-print it for you.
Can you re-print the bookplates I’ve been using for years?
Yes, if you send us a clean, clear print of a bookplate, we can most likely re-print it for you. You can mail a paper copy or e-mail a digital file.
Can any of your designs be altered?
We are sometimes able to alter our designs to accommodate customers’ wishes. This includes enlarging or shrinking designs and changing the text. This is possible on a case-by-case basis, depending upon the design and the request. Please contact us for more information.
Can I have bookplates made in any other sizes?
We have the capability to print bookplates with custom artwork in many sizes and dimensions. Costs will vary, depending upon the amount of paper needed. Some of our own designs lend themselves to being printed in other sizes as well, but not all.
There are so many wonderful designs available. Is it possible to place an order with a selection of designs?
It is possible to do this, however, it is much more time-consuming and labor-intensive for us. It is also not possible to place such an order directly on the website. If you’re interested in this option, please e-mail Karen at email@example.com. She will discuss your options and give you a price quote.
