How do I set my files for print?
Please make sure that you have set your default page size to A4. We receive many files set to American 'Letter' size and although we can print from this it will mean you have more white space at the top and bottom of each printed page than you expect.
In which format should I send my files?
Ideally we would like all files converted to PDF format but we accept Word and Publisher. Please contact us if your file is in a different format. Please check it throughly before sending this will allow us to print your files quicker and give you a peace of mind.
What are the margins required for binding?
The binders prefer 30mm on the binding edge for sewing and 20mm on the 3 other edges. If you have used Word to produce your work then standard margins will be acceptable. Ensure that fold-outs and diagrams produced have reasonable margins and that page numbers, headers and footers are away from the edge.
How do I know if it has printed correctly?
Although we take great care to see that your thesis is printed correctly we strongly recommend that you view all printed copies before they are sent for binding. We can not accept responsibility for any errors or omissions however caused at a later time.
How long does it take to print?
Our standard turnaround time is 24hrs. Additional charges will apply for same day printing.
What paper do you use to print it?
Our standard paper is 100gsm Elemental Chlorine Free from sustainable forests. We also use recycled, cotton and other types at extra costs. Please ask if you require a different paper, we are happy to accommodate.
