"Lou at The Binding Studio has been an exceptional person to work with and our bespoke project could not have been in better hands.

“We’ve been using The Binding Studio for presentation products for our photography & cinema company for a few years. The ability to completely customise and personalise the products is what initially sold us - but Lou’s fantastic service, communication, and speed are what keeps us coming back (along with the fantastic products, of course)!
In a market where the need to showcase a solid & unique brand is paramount - The Binding Studio has been an awesome tool in our overall presentation to clients. We’d totally recommend them to take your branding to the next level.” –Isaac, Perspectives Photo & Cinema
“I have been working with The Binding Studio from the very start. As a photographer I need the best possible portfolio solution to showcase my work, which truly reflects my style. The Binding Studio has made 6 incredible books for me now, I am proud of each and every one. They are beautifully made and faultless. I love the simplicity of design and the array of options available.
In this era of mass production I love the fact they are made with Individual love and draw on traditional origins of bookmaking. I often get comments on the quality of my books and how refreshing it is to see something that is a handcrafted masterpiece. Not only has The Binding Studio provided me with the most beautiful books but they continue to provide the best service I could ever wish for." –Sara Orme, Photographer
“The Binding Studio is my first choice for presentation products. My favourite thing about their products is that they are all hand-made and unique! Lou has such fantastic ideas and creativity you would be hard pushed to find a company that compares. The service is outstanding, I know I can rely on Lou to deliver on time and with exquisite quality.” –Meredith-Clare Photography
“I have had the very great pleasure of working with Louise on several of my artworks. Being, by nature, unique pieces and often with idiosyncratic forms and formats it took me a long time to find a book binder I trusted to achieve my desired results. Louise has, unfailingly, been that binder.
Louise is always willing to give things a go, helping me realise projects that I couldn't have on my own. I have always appreciated and been impressed by her calm guidance: she helps me tweak into the practical and possible ideas that would be (without her expertise) impractical and impossible. From this she has gained a huge amount of my trust in her judgement and advice in many areas of my art practice.
Louise has always responded to communications in a timely manner; catered for my mad, one-off ideas; and (where she can) worked to short deadlines. Her work is beautiful, of an exceptional standard and often better than I can imagine. My relationship with Louise has opened my art practice into new territories I couldn't have otherwise indulged. I can't recommend Louise and the Binding Studio highly enough.” –Gabrielle Amodeo, Artist
“Lou has been hand making beautiful artist sketch books for Artists in Eden Day for quite a few years now - all superbly crafted with archival paper and individually tailored to suit the artist in question. Over the years artists such as Dick Frizzell, Peter Gibson Smith, Denys Watkins, Seung Yul Oh, Jeff Thomson and many others have filled the pages of Lou's delightful books, which are sold at auction at this annual event every March and much treasured by the lucky bidder. Lou herself makes the process as easy as possible for us, always looking for the most efficient solutions to left-field demands while never compromising on her extremely high standards.” –Cathy Manning, Eden Arts Administrator
“Looking for a packaging refresh- I came across The Binding Studio on Facebook and fell in love with Lou’s amazing work. Everything is custom designed to suit your every need and handmade with love. You can definitely tell the passion and pride Lou has in her work from the final products, they are just beautiful.
Dealing with Lou has been beyond amazing. She’s always cheerful and friendly on the phone and more importantly- was really excited to work with me. She has built a keepsake for my couples that showcases my work in a beautiful and unique way and I have no hesitation to use her again in the future.” –Amy Schulz, Photographer
“The service & quality of products that I receive from Louise at the Binding studio is outstanding. Her products have not only given my clients an amazing way to present their portraits with multiple benefits, but has helped my business grow to another level. Louise is always super friendly and efficient in her communication and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a very talented binder.” -Charmaine Marinkovich
