As a post-graduate, you will find a thesis will be a large part of the degree. On completion, most universities require you to submit your work in a 'Book-Bound' format. All universities give guidelines to how your work should be presented. At BDP we can produce work to any university specification.

Why spend hours printing pages on a home inkjet printer, emptying expensive cartridges? We'll minimise waiting time at a fraction of the cost! We charge just 7p per page for black & white, and 20p per page for colour pages. We have plenty of helpful staff, working on three machines which can print at speeds of over 100 pages per minute.
1. You can supply 'hard' paper copies, or a single original from which we can produce further copies. You can bring it to our office, or send by post or courier
2. We can accept all forms of media, which might include:
Memory Stick, CD, DVD, Flash/Jump Drives etc
3. Send your work by email to email@example.com
The quantity of pages in your hard bound document gives us a rough guide as to whether or not it can be foil printed on the spine - 55 pages allows for "Name, Degree, Date" on the spine, where as 100 pages allows for "Name, Degree, Date, Small Title" foiled onto the spine.
We recommend leaving 25-40mm on the left binding edge. Then allow at least 12mm margin on right, top and bottom depending on the layout of your work. For 2-sided printing, either set right and left pages, or leave sufficient for binding in both left and right margins.
We stock a large range of quality paper for use when printing your work. Standard paper used for thesis printing would be standard 80gsm but we also offer 100gsm. The higher the number, the thicker the paper. Bear in mind that the heavier the paper, the thicker the book.
