You’ve been working hard to get to this point now let us help you showcase your work. We are here to help and advise in any way we can. Being creative printers we love to work outside the box when we can and create something a little bit special…just let us know your ideas and we’ll see what we can do.
All our printing and binding is done inhouse meaning we have quick turnaround times and expert advice on tap. And if you are in a panic we offer an express service too.
All our services are available to students but to make it easier we’ve detailed the ones students use most below:
Dissertation / Thesis Printing and Binding:
We offer a huge range of options that hopefully suit what you need, however if you like a bit of this one and a bit of that one give us a call a we can create a hybrid option for you.
Perfect Binding:
Our most popular choice due to its full colour covers and flexibility in shape and size that make your work stand out from the crowd.
Outer covers can be up to heavy weight cardstock and there is no limit on the thickness of the document. The size of document can be anything up to A3 landscape or A4 portrait.

Below: Our Roland LEJ-640 is a hybrid printer, meaning it can print from rolls of media or directly on to rigid sheets up to 13mm thick. Equally important - It uses U.V. cured ink which allows it to print straight on to virtually any substrate, including glass, acrylic, wood, metal, plastic, card and fabric. Your creativity is the only limitation!
