Dissertation printing

We offer a cost-effective, timely dissertation printing service, with a choice of bindings.  For dissertations we print on standard A4 90gsm silk stock. Detailed content that requires a larger, A3 format (such as diagrams) can be accommodated by folding an A3 sheet to A4 size. A hardback binding form (Office document, 110kB) can be dowloaded and filled in with spine details

To discuss your requirements, please visit us during office opening hours or email

Document set-up tips

  • Choose A4 page layout size
  • Allow a minimum right-hand margin of 20mm
  • Save files as PDFs


We can normally soft bind your printed work while you wait. For comb and wire binding please allow four working hours. Allow at least one working day for both printing and binding your work and two working days for hardback binding. If you wish to change pages at a later stage, there is a £5 charge for rebinding (soft, comb or wire binding only).
