Guidance for preparing your thesis/dissertation

Margin sizes for binding
We highly recommend that you allow a minimum of 30mm or 3cm on the binding edge which is normally the left margin by the spine of the book for binding.

Single sided or double sided printing options are available
As standard, we print all thesis and dissertations single-sided using 100 gsm white premium digital paper. If you wish to use double-sided printing instead, then please let us know when ordering. This option is clearly shown on the order page. We can also offer A3 fold outs if you require, please contact us to place these orders.

International ordering
We are happy to provide delivery services internationally and are frequently asked to submit orders to universities in the UK and send additional copies overseas. All international orders will of course incur additional delivery charges dependant on the country we are sending to. We will advise you of these charges in advance before you place your order. All international orders must be placed by phone to check the delivery prices as well as allowing us to check if we can deliver to your selected country. Please click on our contact us link to speak to customer services.
