Welcome to the Custom Scrabble section of Geoffrey Parker; here we’ll try to explain to you the different types of scrabble we offer and the different options there are for designing and personalising your board.
To start with we have two different finishes; the first is hand inlaid where each section of the board is hand cut, and placed into position in different leather colours. The other option is printed leather, where we create the board in your chosen colour and it’s then printed onto white leather.
We then offer two different types of plinth, square-sided and Scalop-sided.
And finally the different leathers & embossings. If you are using our printed leather this can only be done on a specific type of leather however our inlayed option opens up a world of possibilities.
Designing A Custom Scrabble
Our luxury scrabble boards are all handmade to order, which means there’s no minimum order! Whether you would like one special board or 20, we can help.
We have a vast range of standard colours to choose from in our special gaming leather, however, we also offer exotic options and alternative leathers for those wanting to avoid cow hides for religious reasons. For example, we can work with watersnake, ostrich and even cammel.
At Geoffrey Parker we have our ‘standard’ range of luxury leathers which are the leathers we predominantly use for all of our board games; it is tanned and treated to make it wine and tobacco-stain resistant.
We do carry a range of other leathers including bridal hide, watersnake, ostrich and camel. So whether you are aiming for a particular look or you have religious beliefs which means our gaming leather isn’t an option, please don’t hesitate to ask for alternative options.
There are two options when it comes to our plinths we can offer either a scallop sided or a square-sided plinth as standard. As with everything at Geoffrey Parker if you’d like something specific just let us know.

Inlayed Custom Scrabble Board
Bound by hand in Dauphin calf leather (see swatch below) by our master craftsmen; the playing board is hand inlaid and embossed with the Scrabble® values in silver. Separating each playing square is a fixed a chrome metal grid. This upstands just enough to keep the letters stable when spun on the integral Lasy Susan turntable which is built into the underside of the plinth.
The Scrabble letters have also had a luxury makeover; each is painstakingly made up of a leather ‘sandwich’. This is made up of printed cowhide with traditional English Bridle hide in the centre for strength.
Printed Luxury Scrabble Board
Printed onto a cowhide; the same leather as you will find on a boxing glove, we can make the playing board in any colour way you like. This board is then inlaid into a leather frame and placed atop a hand-bound tray which contains all of the gaming components you require.
The tanned cowhide used for the tray itself is available in the following colours; black, red, midnight navy blue or chocolate brown. We recommend that it is best to have a contrast colour for the leather tray as printed leather will never 100% match tanned leather. The letters themselves are printed onto our cowhide which sits on top of English bridle hide tiles. The racks these letters sit atop are hand bound in leather with non-slip suedette bottoms and a felt drawstring “letter” bag completes the game, these are all stowed neatly away in the felt-lined tray under the playing board.
