Printing on good quality 100g (thesis printing only)

Colour & B/W mix: 18p per side

Documents are often a mix of B/W and colour so we have calculated a special reduced rate of 18p to accommodate this.

These prices are for students only and already include student discount. The printing prices are only for when we print the entire document. If only parts of the document require printing or any customer collation is required different timescales and printing prices will apply.

Order Online

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.

Prontaprint provide me with an amazing service. I was served by Ashley who managed to do the impossible and bind my 456 word PhD thesis in one volume. He did an excellent job, it was ready with in four hours and I would highly recommend Prontaprint to any individual looking for a good London binder.

Prontaprint literally saved my degree!! They were not only very professional, patient and informative, but they were able to print my thesis within 2 hours, which allowed me to submit it on time! They were very upfront that sometimes they are only able to do 4-hour printing when it's busy but usually are able to do 2-hour printing (as in my case), their website was very simple to use, they have all the information for each department's printing specifications and the finished product looks great!! I HIGHLY recommend them for all your printing needs!

HIGHLY recommend. I used their two hour service one of busiest days and it was beautifully printed in two hours. The staff were so nice, helpful, and super informative. I really appreciate their service for my dissertation!

Always friendly and helpful, take trouble to ensure I get exactly what I want (which is not always what I've asked for!). They are quick and never let me down. I don't use anybody else - why would I?
