Our timeframe guarantee

When your order is accepted by our team for orders placed either online or in-store you will receive confirmation of the time it will be ready. Assuming you don't make any further changes, we give you a guarantee it will be completed for collection by this time else you will get your thesis order for free. Without quibble. How can we offer this? Simple, in all the years we've been doing this, we've never yet missed a deadline.

Cover & Spine Format

We can bind with black or blue Buckram cloth to your university's specification, you'll just need to let us know whether you'd like soft or hard covers and the information for the spine e.g.

PhD          2017         SMITH, A.

If you would also like your front cover foiled you will need to supply us a single page PDF of the front cover. The PDF must be B/W and contain only text and small simple line images only. Anything else may not print properly.

Printing & Binding

You can either bring us the document ready to bind or we can print it here on good quality 100gsm paper. We may not accept pre-printed documents which we decide are too curly to be bound. We can bind between approximately 25 and 435 sheets of 100g (depending on the paper) in one volume. A blank sheet is inserted at the front and back as standard. Larger theses are split into two volumes (please check with your college or university if multiple volumes are accepted). We only bind A4 sheets so all A3 sheets will be scaled down to A4.

We do not check the layout, content or margins of your document so you must ensure what you send us is correct to your university's specification.


We offer a 48 hour, 24 hour, 4 hour or 2 hour service. This includes the printing time. If ordering online the timeframe chosen does not start until the order has been received and processed by our staff. This can take up to an hour during peak periods and only between 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Orders received outside this time will not be begin until 9am the next working day. Orders for delivery will be ready for dispatch within 2 working days. Our couriers will then deliver within 1-2 working days however there may be delays if delivery cannot be made.

The 2 hour service may not be available during peak times so please get in contact in advance to discuss. We do not take advance bookings.
