Printing of downloaded thesis

In addition to the cost of binding, the cost of printing will be 9p per sheet for black and up to 40p per sheet for colour.

Hard Bound Thesis

This style is known as case binding. Books are bound in quality buckram cloth. They are thread sewn and glued for strength and the spines are rounded for easier opening. Spine lettering is included in the price.

Soft Bound Thesis

Soft bound theses are bound using a high quality card cover. The material used is also quality library buckram cloth. They are usually used for draft copies. We can also bind soft bound theses with a clear front cover.

Wiro Bound Thesis

Ideal for draft theses, small projects, reports, and essays, the theses are bound using a wiro spine for accommodating the punched documents. A transparent PVC front board allows the title page of your document to be viewed. The back cover is a stiff white card, which gives firmer support to the binding.

Library Binding Buckram

The cloth we use to cover theses is high quality Arbelave library buckram, see colour swatch below:

• We stock 30 colours with a consistent colour match
• Acrylic coated with a water-resistant / wipe clean finish
• Colour fast - does not fade
• Excellent foil blocking characteristics for clear text
• Durable, smooth with a high quality finish

Journal Binding

All journals have the adverts removed if required; they are then collated, sewn and covered in quality Arbelave buckram and gold blocked with all relevant information.

If you need to have further copies bound we will keep a card record of the colour and spine lettering for future volumes. Discount is available for large orders. Binding prices from £25 per volume.
