Eve Stern★★★★★ a year agoProntaprint 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!
Robert Wilkes★★★★★ 3 weeks agoI 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!
David Grabner★★★★★ 2 months agoFast and reliable service. Can only recommend to any students looking to print their theses and dissertations.
Russell Banfield★★★★★ 6 months agoGreat service, I couldn’t be happier with the binding. It looked awesome, and way cheaper than I thought it would be, I’m pleased I ordered two copies so that I could keep one for myself. Highly recommended, I’m definitely going to use Prontaprint again.

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
All of our theses are bound using extra strong glue along the spine.
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. Both soft and hard bound thesis are glue bound.
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.
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.
