1. Handmade Bible Covers: Precise Fit

One size does not fit all. Sometimes covers are so big that it makes the Bible or Missal hard to read. Or the zipper does not give the book room to open flat.

A sweet lady sent me a note about her business selling custom Bible covers. I was thrilled to see these as they are beautifully made and are just the answer for a perfect fit.

Being personalized they are also the answer to everyone's cover looking the same. She offered me a sample hoping that I would put a link to her site, so I was glad to choose one that would fit our son's book.

Talk about custom, she made it exactly the right size and put beautiful embroidery on the front cover - his choice. 

Seeing this wonderful treasure, I'm very happy to link to her Leah's Legacy list of scores of personalized Bible covers. See one here. I explain why throughout this page.

1A. Men's Bible Covers

Many times the men like a plain cover so these can be made and sent to you more quickly. Be sure to send your book's exact size.

Remember to add a monogram or your name. There are several vinyl colors that would look nice. Several of her themes apply to fatherhood and men's names:

Print the poster for your family and friends or ask Father if you can post it in the vestibule at the church or in your bookstore.

1B. Bible Covers For Women

Many times ladies like their covers a bit more ornate. This is great for distinguishing which book is yours when there are several together at church or at home. It's even easier when you choose one of the different vinyl colors. Choose different themes:

  • The Blessed Virgin Mary
  • The Seven Sorrows of Mary
  • Ave Maria and Miraculous Medal
  • Floral IHS Cover

1C. Children's Bible Covers

Since these children's Bible covers are custom made; you can get them to fit any sized book, even small children's Bibles or prayer books.

Children really like the different colors and embroidery on their personalized Bible covers.

Personalization makes it easier for children to tell which is theirs. It also encourages them to take good care of their special book. It's "mine".

Some of the themes already include children's names and the Holy Eucharist:

Personalization To The Rescue

Most people at church have a cover. So, how do you tell yours from the next black clad treasure?

Get one of Alyssa's personalized Bible covers to differentiate yours from the crowd. This way both you and others know who owns which book.

Custom here means choose your front cover's design, wording and vinyl color.

Personalized means that you can add initials or a name to the back cover.

Another idea: Be sure to write your full name and phone number in several places in the book, especially the front title page.

3. Bible and Missal Covers Protect Your Books

3A. Protect Your Investment

A family Bible, prayer book, or Missal may be the most expensive books most folks buy. Personalized Bible covers can protect them from humidity and dust and help you find yours in the stack. 

Personally, I'm a firm believer in using covers ever since the Sisters required them when our oldest were in school more than 15 years ago. Instantly, we recognized a good idea. The year before this we'd seen a friend's prayer book dropped in a puddle. Ouch! We were all dismayed. Most of the book was fine with just some edges needing to be dried, yet those pages are now all wrinkled. At least she picked it up quickly before the whole book was soaked.

Later, when our oldest son was in first or second grade he lost his little children's Missal, a child sized book. Years later the Sisters found it when the men were redesigning the landscaping around the school. Guess what? It has many water marks and a bit of mold, yet it was protected by its cover - all those years. He's grown now, yet we still have this little treasure of his first days studying the Faith.

Because these covers are zippered, your holy cards will not get lost. The material is of buttery soft Naugahyde that will not crack in the freezing temperatures, feels nice to the touch, and flexes while in use.

3B. Use Your Missal For Years

Our zippered covers have kept our Missals useful for over 15 years. There are many times we've been glad to have our zippered covers. They've survived rain, being dropped in the snow, slid around under the seats in the van, and many more of the hazards in family life with many little children.

We were tempted not to cover the younger children's books. The Sisters kept us in line there and we are glad for it. First, one of our favorite little prayer books went out of publication. So sad. Yet, we sure have our first four children's copies in good order because their covers protected them. 

For years the only one of us who did not get a cover was Dad. No one was checking to see that his book was covered and we never felt the need to spend the extra money. Guess what? His is the only Missal that entirely broke loose of its binding.

Me? Mine is breaking, yet that is my fault because I left the cover open once and dropped it. A huge thank you to our Sisters!

3C. Beware Misuse

As a mother of eight, most of whom are grown, I recommend that you help your children to beware several issues:

  • Hold the Missal from underneath to avoid pulling out pages.
  • Sharp or thick edged ribbons can cut page edges.
  • Too many holy cards can break the binding of a Missal especially if it is in a fastened cover.
  • Keep the Missal cover zipped when walking or traveling.

I hope that these notes help you preserve your Bibles, Missals and prayer books.

3.D. How To Cover A Missal

You want to prevent bending your Missal's cover, so here is how to open it so you can slide the cover sleevers on easily.

1. Check for right side up.

Orient The Pockets To The Cover

2. Aim the cover so the book will be right side up with the cover's design.

3. Fold the book entirely open.

4. Fold the cover open, yet inside out.

5. Slide the Missal's front and back covers into the pockets in the Missal cover.

6. Gently close the cover over the Missal as you close the book so as to pull the pockets onto the cover and not bend the hard bound cover. This is especially important for softer covers like the Lasance Missal.

4. Leah's Legacy Personalized Bible Covers

 Leah's Legacy Personalized Missal Covers

We received our cover in very nice condition from the packaging to the final product. It arrived within three days. It was carefully packed and ready for gift giving.

  • I loved the beautiful embroidery that also has a good backing so that the stitching does not pull through the cover. 
  • The cloth material is very sturdy; not the cheap brittle plastic of some vinyl covers, but a rich buttery leather-like Naugahyde.
  • I am so glad that the zipper stops before the ribbons.
  • This is certainly the most beautiful Missal cover we own.
  • Pictures tell you the whole story. This is gorgeous!

Covers also make wonderful gifts especially at adult Baptisms, Confirmations, and weddings. I think that you'll love having one of these personalized Bible covers and Missal covers. I do.
