Bookbinder Rag & Bone Makes Art Profitable
Lynda Resnick's Blog:
Lynda Resnick: In this week's Ruby Tuesday, we're speaking to Jason Thompson, owner and founder of Rag & Bone Bindery. Jason, would you please describe your business?
Jason Thompson: We're a small bookbinding studio. We're housed in a 105-year-old renovated mill building in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and we design and produce photo albums, journals, baby books, and wedding albums, all by hand. We market to gift shops and catalogues, as well as sell direct to consumers on our e-commerce website. We're a very small company. There are only ten of us, and I run the bindery together with my wife. We live with our two small children in a residential loft above the bindery, which we renovated a few years ago.
