The monks of Saint Vincent Archabbey have been involved with books, publishing, and bookbinding from the start. When Archabbot Boniface Wimmer, O.S.B., arrived at present-day Saint Vincent, he developed a self-sufficient community. The monks farmed, built a gristmill for grain, and began printing books. These books were primarily texts for students and monks in formation; however, the Abbey Press soon grew to accommodate and publish books written by community monks.

While the Abbey Press no longer exists, and Archabbey Publications now develops books for on-demand printing, the monks of the Abbey still do custom bookbinding.
