Book of Shadows Price Increase
It has been 2 years since the relaunch of Prescott Manor and as you may have noticed, the Book of Shadows has incurred a necessary price increase. There are several reasons for this increase, these are detailed below.
- Printing Costs
Printing the entire Book of Shadows is a technical process and uses a very specific type of printing (waterproof ink, which allows the pages to be aged). This is done by a professional printing company in Italy and then shipped to me in London.
Getting the correct colour of Leather for the Book of Shadows has become increasingly difficult and is now provided by a company that ages the leather to a suitable colour for me to use a base- this is a chargable service.
- Production Time
As a one man team, creating the amount of Book of Shadows needed for a Batch is very labour intensive. Since Prescott Manor has grown to such a big size (thanks to all you fans and your support) I have less free time to work on these and occasionally need outside help.
- Business Costs
Lastly, since Prescott Manor is both my hobby and my business, I now have financial responsibilities that come with running a business. (Overhead costs, taxes etc)
Essentially, this price increase will cover the price I pay on Tax for each Book.
I look forward to continuing the magic and creating replicas old and new.
