San Val customers,

In order to focus on the continued growth of Turtleback Books and in response to the evolving demands of the book industry, San Val, Inc. has eliminated all product lines except Turtleback as of January 31, 2013. We understand that this is an inconvenience and will do everything we can to make your transition as smooth as possible. We are pleased to recommend the services of Houchen Bindery, who specializes in San Val’s binding types, including textbook rebinding, and will meet your high standards for quality, appearance, turnaround time, and customer service. Houchen can be contacted at, 402-534-2261, or 800-869-0420.

We appreciate the loyalty our customers have shown over the past 45 years, and we hope you understand our need to focus on our growing Turtleback brand. To learn more about Turtleback Books, please visit our website at

San Val will accept no new orders after January 31, 2013. For any questions, concerns, or invoicing and production issues, please feel free to e-mail Mike French at or call him at 800-458-8438, ext. 265.
