    Posted Oct 16th, 2018 By in Rich's Blog, Uncategorized With | No Comments Leather Binder

    Leather Binder.

    Is the perfect solution for leather that has had a lot of wear taken place and the leather colour has fully gone and its exposed the fibres of the leather so it almost looks like suede.

    The leather binder is a watery filler. It is designed to soak deep into the fibres of the leather.

    It dries to bind the structure of the leather; making for a stronger base to carry out your repairs.

    The leather binder is best used on severely cracked leather where the structure of the leather has degraded so much that there is a chance that any stress on the leather may cause the fibrous structure to pull apart.

    You then go over the Binder with Flexi Filler or Light Filler or both.

    To use, simply apply with a sponge to the affected areas making sure you completely soak the fibres with the binder and allow to dry.

    Its best to use the Flexi Filler next in this process.

  • Starting A New Business

    Posted Oct 16th, 2018 By in Rich's Blog, Uncategorized With | No Comments Starting A New Business

    A New Business StartUp Plan

    Starting a new business can be a daunting prospect for most people, but as long as you do your homework and make the checks needed this can be your best chance in life to make it to the top very quickly.

    When you consider buying a franchise its best to see if the company you are dealing with, will go that extra mile to support you and look after you.

    If they request you to come to them rather than them coming to you, I would think long and hard about taking up a franchise with a company.

    When you’re looking at buying a franchise, you want a company that will go out of its way to come to your location and lay its cards on the table about what it plans and how it plans to do it.

    You want a company with a very strong background a company that understands the market its in and one that understands your needs and requirements and works for you rather than building a big healthy bank balance for the owners.

    Taking on board a franchise is the best way of starting a company as you are using the reputation that company has built up over the years.

    We are looking at franchises within the leather industry the leather industry is a huge market place and its growing at a rapid rate of around 53% per year, so now is the perfect time to grab a franchise from a company that are offering them.

    The potential earnings on a franchise can be huge, some franchise owners of Leather Repair Companies are earning in excess of £200,000 per year, this can be achieved with the first 5 years.

    What is so fantastic about taking on board a start-up company this way is everything is done for you, all the initial teething problems with getting a comp-any up and running are done for you without you having to worry about any of it.

    If you get a company that is perfect for your needs you will be on to a winner and be bringing in substantial incomes in no time at all.

    Getting on board with a company that has a huge internet presents is the best option possible as the internet is the way forward today, you want a company that is very active in social networking, twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, flip board, Pinerest, YouTube and Instagram to just name a few.

    You want a company who has a web site that can drive traffic to its social networking sites in turn bringing in customers for you.

    Getting on board with a company is one thing but training is essential as with anything, you want to look for a company that offers professional training to help you and train you and grow your business.

    Getting involved with handbag repairs now is the best advice i can give anyone when the market sales ar edue to reach $9.0 billion b y 2015, that means one thing a lot of handbags will want cleaning, repairing, conditioning and protecting, do you want to miss out on this potential income

    Below are a couple of videos worth watching on franchises,

    LEATHER CARE FAQs

    Don’t go mad about your leather issues, we can help …

    If you have a question about or a problem with leather, like stains, colour loss, scratches, tears rips and more, the chances are somebody else has asked us before. This page has some of the common sorts of questions we have received, so have a look at them and see if they help! if you dont see your issue here please email us info@leatherrepaircompany.com. If you want further help with our Leather Care FAQs please do get in touch.

    Q: My denim jeans have left a colour stain on my light coloured leather sofa – what can I do about this?

    A: Colour staining is an increasingly common problem as light coloured leather furniture becomes more popular and dye transfers from one material to another. This can be avoided by using a leather care product to protect the leather before use or after cleaning. For further information contact info@leatherrepaircompany.com Some retailers may provide leather protector at point of sale or apply it prior to sale. For the best Leather Conditioning & Protection Cream Follow this link – – View Leather Conditioner & Protection Cream

    Q:  How can I protect my cream coloured leather car interior from stains and scuffing?

    A: Its best to use a leather protector such as LRC’s , this is best done either before the leather becomes soiled, at the point of purchase or after cleaning the cars leather interior this helps prevent colour staining from materials like denim or newsprint and also significantly reduces wear and tear on leather bolsters, seams, stitching and entry/exit points in the vehicle. Scuffing cant be stopped due to things like buttons on clothing etc, but using the protection cream four times a year will help reduce this from possibly happening and keeping your leather in far better condition that it would have been before. For further information contact info@leatherrepaircompany.com

    Q: My handbag is brand new and it has mildew all over it. Why has this happen,  what can I do to remove it and to help stop it happening in the future?

    A: This can be prevented by storing in a cool, dry, airy place. Do not store in polythene. I would suggest you wipe off existing mould,  with a wool pad dampened in a pure white vinegar solution.

    Q:  I sent my Belstaff jacket to the dry cleaners and they have removed the top surface colour, i contacted Belstaff direct and they passed me your details can you help.

    A: Yes this can be resolved, the top surface colour on some Belstaff jackets are a thin coating to give it that luxury antiqued look, without the correct cleaners this can be removed quickly, dry cleaners use steam and this is what will have taken the top surface colour off, we can professionally restore this antique look for you, please visit our jacket repair page if you go to the bottom of the page you can download our forms and ship the item to us for a professional appraisal.

    Q: One of my children kindly used ink on my sofa & the marks don’t come off. How can I remove blue ballpoint pen from a leather sofa its a cream colour.

    A: sorry about the problem with the ink marks on your leather furniture. Ball-point pen ink is an oil based viscous ink, when on the polymer finish applied to the surface of upholstery leather and therefore is quickly absorbed into the surface making it difficult to remove.  You can use our Ink & Stain Remover Kit. However, they are only fully effective if treated soon after contamination; the longer you leave the ink the harder it will be to remove. The longer you have left the ink on the leather furniture the more likely it is that a colour restoration process is required, you can buy a small scuff kit to do this.

    Q: The salesman at the garage has told me i dont need to protect my new cars leather car interior is that correct ?

    A: That is wrong, protecting and feeding your leather from new is more important than after its been used, as when its new it’s in one of it’s most vulnerable situations, open to the elements to be attacked.  its better to protect and feed your leather from new than pass up on doing it as its amazing how quickly it can break down if not protected fully and correctly. You can view our leather car plan this plan applies to leather car seats, furniture, clothing, shoes in fact anything that is leather.

    Q: I have a rip in my most loved leather jacket can you help me :-(

    A: Please dont worry we can repair this for you. This can be repaired to look like a natural scar line in the leather, in some cases almost invisible. you can visit our page on leather jacket repairs or if you wanted to repair this yourself you can buy a leather glue repair kit.

    Q: The cloakroom attendant stuck a sticker on my leather jacket and after removal some stickiness has removed the colour and left it dull  and will not come out leaving a dark spot as some dirt has stuck to the stickiness. Please help with a remedy!

    A: This is a very common issue. The surface coating on leather jackets is very thin and with these claokroom stickers applied it can in a lot of cases remove the colour, depending on how badly its removed it you have three options, option on is to use the leather re colouring balm,   option two is to use a small colouring kit to dye the effected areas, option three is to send it in to us for a professional restoration

    Q: When i agreed to buy my leather sofa it looked a nice dark cream colour, but what has been delivered does not look the same colour as in the shop Why?

    A: Leather is a natural product and due to this there will be some shade variations that are natural shads that happen during the manufacturing of hides in the tanneries.

    Q: Ive had this furniture for a few months now and I went to wipe it over using an all in one leather cleaner conditioner wipe, the colour of the leather came off with the wipe !!  Is this normal? I do know my furniture is not aniline or nubuck if that helps. The furniture shop I purchased it from gave me no instructions on how to care for the leather and it had no instructions on it either.  When I purchased it he showed me a swatch of the leather as I told him I needed a leather that did not scratch because I have young kids who love to climb all over it with toys. The swatch did not scratch but the furniture does badly.

    A: If you bought the leather wipes at the same place as the furniture and the furniture shop recommended to use on your furniture, then you have a legitimate case to make a complaint as it appears that there is clearly an incompatablity between the wipes used and the finish on the leather. If you do not get any joy with the furniture shop, then I would suggest you contact your local trading standards office. You can click on this link to take you direct to the trading stanards web site.  We would be happy to provide an independent report if you need one.

    Q: Is it ok to hang my leather jacket in a wardrobe ?

    A: Yes it is ok to hang in a wardrobe as long as there is some form of movement of air,  ie ventilation holes somewhere. Do not hang in a polythene cover or a clothing sack or travel suit suit bag.

    Q: How do I go about re-finishing my car seats?

    A: All you will need is one of our leather kits that will fit in with what your doing if its a full interior restoration then you require a large colour repair kit. We will also supply you on request a CD packed full of restoration guids and our 34 page book we have written in house.

    Q: I have emulsion paint on my new leather sofa, Is the emulsion removable from the Leather at all?

    A: Yes. Using the Premium Leather Cleaner or the Stain Remover.  However, a gloss paint is much more difficult to remove, and this will require a Leather Colorant Kit if you have gloss paint on your leathers surface.

    Q: Do i need to keep turning my leather cushoins on my sofa to keep it in better condition.

    A: It is best to rotate cushions every 30-60 days for even wear on the leathers surface, depending on the amount of use.  Any form of lining its best to remember to exercise the lining / foam by fluffing and redistributing the the lining / foam evenly throughout.

    Q:  Will it matter if i place my leather furniture next to a radiator ?

    A: Take care not to place your furniture too near a radiator or similar heat source. Make sure there is at least 2 feet of space between your furniture and heat source. If this si not done you will find your leather breaks down and this will in time cause colour loss to take place.

    Q: Should I care for my leather handbag ?

    A: When you first purchase a handbag its best to use LRC’s leather protector before  you use it for the first time and once a month to protect, moisturize and its also advised to clean the leather on your handbag every time you protect it.  Apply a small ten pence size amount of protector onto a soft clean cloth. Rub into the leather, if the bag is a well loved used handbag take special care with any scratched areas. Then buff off the excess with a soft clean cloth. For dimples and small dents, rub behind the affected area with your hand on the inside of the bag. We highly recommend use of LRC’s leather protector for leather handbags to protect them and extend the life of your handbags.  We have not tested other brands of protector.  Be sure to store your bag in its storage Bag when not in use, do not store your leather item in a plastic bag at all,  make sure the leather can breath and has air ventillation.

    Q: How long will it take to get my order ?

    A: in most cases your order is sent the same day or within 48 hours maximum, in the UK they are all sent by recorded delivery second class, bigger kits are sent parcel force on a next day delivery. Excluding weekends and bank holidays.

    Q: Will the repair be invisible?

    A: A lot of companies will tell you yes it will, we are an open up front company, so in the majority of instances no. We only use highly advanced equipment to re colour  your leather, this is matched by eye perfectly, to a minimum accuracy of 99.9%. Scuff and scratch repairs are as near to invisible as we can get them
