What Makes our KJV Bibles Different?

Christian Art Gifts has elevated Bible design and production in the Christian industry. We set the bar high by adding features that make our Bibles useful, long-lasting, and beautiful.

Designing and producing a Bible is a specialized craft that takes a large and diverse team to complete. Editors, typesetters, proofreaders, designers, and production specialists work countless hours to produce the final specifications and files that a manufacturer uses to produce the Bible.


We believe the Bible to be God’s inspired Word, and a truly life-giving text. As such, we’ve designed and included useful features to help get the most out of reading your KJV Bible.

Biblical maps provide a great way to visualize the geographical history of the Bible. To this end, we include eight maps in most of our Bibles. The maps cover the world of the Patriarchs, the exodus from Egypt, the conquest of Canaan, the allotments of the 12 tribes, Jerusalem in the time of David and in the time of Jesus, the Holy Land in the time of Jesus, and Paul’s missionary journeys. All maps are printed in full color on gloss matte art paper.

Thumb-cut indexing has been used in Bibles for centuries. This useful feature allows the reader to quickly find the desired chapter they are looking for. Half-moon cut-outs of sections of the Bible expose a foil printed tab that contains a series of names of the books of the Bible. Most Bibles with thumb indexes display several names per tab as there are so many books to name. This feature makes it easy for the end user to navigate the Scriptures.

Ribbon markers make useful placeholders in your Bible. Our ribbon markers come in colors that complement the head and tail bands; another beautiful and practical accent to adorn your Bible. These ribbon markers are woven from satin, and they do not fray. During the construction process the ribbon marker is sewn into the spine of the book to ensure that is secure. Larger books like the our Study Bible, Family Bible or My Creative Bible feature two ribbon markers.

A topical verse finder offers a convenient and quick way to find verses in the Bible that relate to specific topics. A great tool when you struggle to recall exact verse references or to find out what the Bible says about a specific topic. A concordance is an index of words that are used in the Bible. Use it for word studies or quick references. A one-year Bible reading plan schedules a few chapters of reading a day to help you read through the Bible in 365 days.

Typeface refers to the design of the letters used in print. This can include the style of the letter, or font, and special features applied to that letter like bold or italics and condensed or expanded. Considerations for choosing a Bible typeface are readability, space efficiency, opacity, and visual appeal. At Christian Art Gifts, the fonts we use in our KJV Bibles have been chosen to complement the style and size of each Bible edition, and to provide a clear reading experience.

Font size describes the size of the typeface used in our Bibles. While font size doesn’t necessarily affect readability, it does affect the final size of the Bible. And, depending on the font style, or typeface, large print or giant print can be helpful to certain eyes. Christian Art Gifts uses font size of 6 to 7 point font size for the smallest pocket Bible, and 10 point font in our Pew and Gift Bibles, up to a 17 point font for our Super Giant Print Bibles.


Your favorite Bible becomes a part of your daily life. You will read passages over and over; underline or highlight, and make margin notes. Some might even decorate their favorite passages in color or adorn the pages with stickers. Christian Art Gifts understands how Bibles become so personal, so we are committed to making beautiful and durable KJV Bibles.

Attention to detail in Bible construction culminates in Bibles of superior quality to our competitors. A quality Bible means every component was made with durable materials and bound together so that it will not fall apart. To ensure this quality we utilize several processes, like topstitching, Smyth-sewn binding, and top-quality paper and cover materials.

Topstitching refers to the visible stitches on the outside of book covers. Topstitching is used along the edges of Bible covers to reinforce them. When the design calls for it, topstitching is also used to join together seams on the covers to produce a flat seam, using a double row of topstitching to add an extra measure of support and strength. This added strength results in an extra design element as well, and thread color adds to the cover aesthetic.

Christian Art Gifts uses a durable lay-flat method of binding called Smyth-sewn binding, a classic method of sewing together sections of a book to form the whole. This ensures the spine binding stays intact, the book opens flat, and pages won’t fall out. Smyth-sewn binding increases legibility, making the entire page is visible from the edge to the middle. The endsheets used on the inside of the cover, a critical part of the binding, link the book and its cover. We use durable 140gsm wood-free paper as endsheets to ensure a tight-fitting binding.

As in any book, paper is an essential ingredient of a Bible, Using the finest paper with the correct weight and opacity, and its grain aligned to the spine of the book, is of primary importance. We print our Bibles on weights between 28GSM Bible paper for very small Bibles to 45GSM for our larger journaling Bibles. Opacity refers to the amount of light that is transmitted through the paper. A higher percentage of opacity has less show-through or bleeding. Balancing opacity with the ultra-thin paper Bible use is a challenge. Years of printing Bibles has shown us that paper with an opacity of at least 78 percent works best.

Covers form the skeleton of a Bible. We start with Bible board for flexibility and strength, then wrap it with durable cover material and join it to the endsheets. From our economical Worship Bibles to our Heirloom Family Bible, we then choose the best material to fit our customers’ budgets and preferences. Our leather Bibles use full-grain leather, developing a beautiful patina over time. Our faux leather Bibles feature synthetic material that looks and feels like leather, and gives excellent results for heat-embossing and foil application. It is durable, scratch-resistant, and waterproof.


Our unique cover designs are designed in-house by a team of talented artists. In order to design a Bible, our designers research vintage Bible design for inspiration. Their task, then, is to create classic and contemporary Bible designs using modern materials and manufacturing processes.

Our foil accents feature a variety of colors, from the standard silver and gold foil to all the colors of the rainbow. Foil is applied to the cover by a brass mold that is heated up and pressure stamped onto the cover. This technique ensures the foil stays in place for the life of the cover. Foiling gives a classic look to our Bibles as a detail that’s been included on Bibles for centuries.

Gilt-edging is the age-old process of applying gold leaf to the edges of a page. Gilt-edging is not only used to beautify the Bibles, but it is also used to protect the page edges from dust, browning, and moisture. Although we typically use silver and gold gilt-edging, we have also sprayed or printed the page edges with a special ink, for example, the beautiful edge printing on our journaling Bibles.

Head and tail bands refer to the colored twine at the top and bottom of the spine, where the book block is attached to the cover. This small detail contributes to the overall beauty of the book. Hubs or ribs on the spine originated in handmade books, where a cord was used to keep the book block together. Today, this is an ornamental feature that harkens back to handmade books and gives a Bible a classic antique look.

History of the KJV

When James IV was crowned King James I of England in 1603, the religious establishment was in an uproar. The printing press made distribution of several versions of the Bible possible, and Protestants, Puritans and the Church of England had their own Bibles and political views.

In a 1604 meeting of religious scholars, the idea was presented by the Puritans to create a new Bible that would unite all believers. The Puritans felt strongly that the flaws of the three most popular Bibles that were in use at the time, the Great Bible, the Bishop’s Bible, and the Geneva Bible, should be remedied.

After much discussion during the Hampton Court Conference, King James instructed a team of translators to create a new translation of the Bible using the Bishop’s Bible as a guide. And so, King James started to unite his people by commissioning the King James Bible—a universally accepted translation for all.

Frequently Asked Questions

The King James Bible was translated using the best original texts of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, by the best biblical scholars of the day. As such, it is deemed accurate and reliable in its translation. In 1769, it underwent a revision to correct numerous small errors that included updates in spelling and printing mistakes—most modern translations use this version.

While some consider the language of the KJV old-fashioned, its integrity and accuracy as a translation is unchallenged. The poetry of its language brings a reverence and beauty no longer used in English today, though the KJV is ingrained into the language, with phrases like “the blind leading the blind, “lost sheep,” or “God forbid”.

The King James Bible was commissioned in 1604 by King James I of England. Disagreements over translation, plus political angles in previous translations of the Bible increased divisions amongst Protestants, not least between Puritans and the Church of England. King James’ intent was to get a reliable and accurate translation that would be a unifying Bible for Protestantism and the Church of England. The final translation was finished in 1611, named the King James Version in honor of the King’s patronage, and also called the Authorized Version of the Bible.

Though not commissioned by the Catholic church, some Catholics may use the King James Version. In its original form, it contained the books of the Apocrypha, however, the standard versions of the KJV today, used mostly by Protestant denominations do not contain the apocrypha, making it a version not popular amongst Catholics.
