Amazing quality prints, fast turnaround and very helpful staff. Not too expensive either. Really impressed with the service especially during what is a really difficult time for lots of business. Thanks so much!!

Prontaprint has been a lifesaver! My team was hosting two events in London for the first time and I was tasked with finding reliable sources abroad to help get the job done. Prontaprint had everything I needed. In addition to their printing services they also had notepads, pens, and provided delivery. Ashley and Mark were of fantastic help to me working with my timezone and answering all of my questions. Thank you again!

Very easy to upload and enter requirements. Accurate time estimates and great quality work. I’ve used the service twice now. Would use again, and highly recommend.

I am not currently based in the UK, but needed to get a hard bound copy of my thesis to my university in Oxford. To save the expense of shipping one from France, I chose Prontaprint. I used the online ordering system (all very straightforward) to upload the PDF files, submit a front cover for embossing, etc – then it was printed within one working day and shipped to my university, where they received it. Not sure how the price (around £125 including printing and shipping) compares with other services. I was told that the finished thesis looked great! My only critique would be that if your thesis is in 2 volumes (one for text, one for illustrations, in my case) you have to order each volume individually – it would be nice to have the option of printing both volumes within the same order (this would also reduce shipping costs). But that’s my only objection. A great service if you want to get your final thesis printed and bound remotely!
