There are many reasons to purchase preservation services from GRP.

Sales Experience

Known and trusted sales representatives who understand the preservation and reformatting needs of counties nationwide.

Turnaround Time

4 weeks for digitization only. 8-12 weeks for standard work. 12-16 weeks for difficult, books. No more year-long waiting periods for books to be completed and returned.

Pickup and Delivery

We rarely use a third-party carrier. Most services include pickup and delivery by GRP staff (sales or route drivers). Our personnel understand proper care and handling of your record books when moving from your office to our labs and back.


GRP has preservation labs in North Manchester, Indiana, and Greensboro, North Carolina.

Both locations are staffed with people who have many years of experience in handling academic, business, and government material for binding and preservation services. Your books are secure and are held in a climate-controlled environment.

For many customers in the Midwest and Southeast, materials are never more than few hours from your county office. They are always accessible, and scan-on-demand services are available if copies are needed in rush situations.

Quality Workmanship

With over 80 years of operation, HF Group has been a leader in bookbinding and book and paper conservation, as well as digitization, for libraries, museums, and archives. Our treatment methods and materials used for government record preservation methods are among the very best.


Our pricing is very competitive. In many instances – especially in the case of the more important work - our prices are lower than our competitors.

Peace of Mind

When your completed books are returned from treatment, you will know you have made the right decision for your county’s assets.

Get started...

Our trained sales team will assess your books onsite at no charge. For county recorders and archivists not currently engaged in preservation, we encourage a small project that demonstrates before-and-after results that can be shown to Administrators and Commissioners to aid in the decision-making process for the funding of preservation and re-formatting programs.
