About

We have been bookbinding since 1968. Every year we bind in excess of 10,000 documents for students, businesses and the legal profession.

The Document Centre and R.G. Scales

In 1976 R.G. Scales was established in the Inner Temple serving the legal profession. After many years of growth, we then opened a factory in Bermondsey and moved the main office to Ludgate Circus.

We have now consolidated all buildings into one close to London Bridge and have incorporated R.G.Scales into the Document Centre where we have a purpose-built bindery and digital print department.

We now have a team of 10 fully trained, professional staff who have a combined experience of over 100 years in the bookbinding and printing trade to help you with any problems you may have with the production of your thesis/dissertation or personal bindings.

Thesis binding & bookbinding for students, university dissertations and more

As the leading company for many years in thesis/dissertation binding, we have built up the ability to understand the needs of the university student and the deadlines that they have, and to help them through this anxious time.

We can have your thesis/dissertation printed and bound and ready for submission within hours.

We are the one stop shop for all of your printing and binding needs

We are the pioneers in innovative binding systems and are at the forefront of ‘on-demand binding’.   

We have simple bindings which can be printed and bound on the spot up to full leather presentation volumes for special events, including personalised volumes such as poetry, or personal novels etc.

We pride ourselves on not saying No. If there is a bookbinding problem, contact us and talk it through, it may not be as big a problem as you believe.
