No matter how busy we are, or how many deadlines Swansea University and Swansea Metropolitan University have on a given day - we guarantee that our binding dissertation services will help beat your deadline! We offer an incredibly quick turn round, with our standard service costing £3.50 per copy and taking 2 hours, we also offer our convenient while-u-wait for just £7 per copy, which takes just 10-15 minutes.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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, you either need to 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 normally be 80gsm for soft cover and 100gsm for hard cover binding. The higher the number, the thicker the paper. Copier/inkjet paper is usualy 80gsm.
Bear in mind that the heavier the paper, the thicker the book.
