This listing is especially for those that want their coat of arms or custom heraldry preserved on their bible for generations to come.
We customize and produce every bible cover when it is ordered and our specialty is working with clients to personalize it. We will need a good quality jpeg, tiff or PDF file of your coat of arms. Extra charges may apply if we have to build it for you from scratch. If you are using a PDF, send to:
angela [!at] sonshineleather.com
We use a laser to etch the image into the leather and then hand embellish with color when wanted or needed. We then hand finish the leather in an antiqued brown finish. That can be adjusted to be a light finish or dark finish, depending on your preference and what works with the design. The darker the finish subdues the design a bit since the etched design is black. Just open a dialogue if you have other ideas to discuss. Verses or text may also be added.
The bibles we provide are the best quality that we have been able to find that are worthy of binding in leather to last for generations to come. They vary in features according to what version you choose. If you are looking for a specific version or type that we do not carry, you may always purchase and send to us for binding. We can also rebind old bibles if you want to refurbish yours! In our options menu, that is what is meant by "your bible". Standard sizes are usually up to 9 x 6 inches and spines no more than an inch and a half. Study sizes are the wider spines over one and a half inches. Family bibles generally run 11 x 9 and up to 2 and a half inches. Some versions such as ESV, and NRSV are not available in the family bible size. There is no extra charge to add text to the back or inside front of the bible. If you want a design added to back please dialogue with us for pricing and a custom listing. We usually need 2 to 3 weeks for custom designed bibles after we have gotten you approval on the proof and have the bible to use in hand. If you are finding us at the last minute we do offer a rush shipping option in a separate listing and can often get it out the door sooner especially when using one of our bibles.
