This year, The Document Centre celebrates 50 years of document binding, thesis binding, printing, bookbinding and book restoration/repair. It’s an amazing milestone and one that few, if any, other professional printers and binders can match.

We started printing and binding way back in 1968, originally as ‘R.G. Scales’ (named after the owner, Richard Scales). Eight years later in 1976, we relocated to the legal profession’s “Inner Temple”, serving students and the legal profession. After many years of growth, we then opened a factory in Bermondsey and moved the main office to Ludgate Circus. More recently we consolidated all the buildings into one base, close to London Bridge, and have incorporated R.G. Scales into The Document Centre as it’s now known. Here, in Southwark Bridge Road, we have a purpose built bindery and digital print department.

Our staff are fully trained bookbinding and printing professionals with over 90 cumulative years in the industry. As our many glowing 5 star testimonials and customer reviews show, they go out of their way to help customers hit deadlines and overcome last minute problems such as error corrections.

Thesis/Dissertation Binding Specialists

As well as supplying commercial printing to local businesses in SE1, The Document Centre specialises in thesis and dissertation printing/binding for degree students. That includes undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from universities and other institutions around the UK. The printing and binding is produced to each institution’s exact specifications, unless otherwise requested of course. Students can choose from a number of binding styles (soft binding, hard binding, wiro binding, perfect binding, glue binding and velo binding for example) and a number of optional extras like register ribbons, pockets to hold inserts, foil blocked lettering, CD and DVD burning – and so on. They can also select from a number of different turnaround and delivery options. Turnaround includes anything from 2 hours to 3 days and delivery options even include free delivery to a number of London institutions. Check out the thesis binding and order/quote sections for more details or call 020 7928 9738 for more details. Alternatively drop us a line here and we’ll be happy to help.
