Good News! The August Bank Holiday weekend is nearly here! The Met Office is even saying that the Sunday and Monday are likely to be warm and sunny – let’s hope they’re right! Another bit of good news, that we reported previously, is that we’re currently opening on Saturdays (10am until 2pm) for simple printing and binding and that’s even true this coming Bank Holiday weekend (learn more about the particular services available on Saturdays here).

The perhaps not-so-good news, particularly for university students with thesis or dissertation deadlines, is that The Document Centre will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday (28th August). So we thought we’d confirm when orders need to be with us if you’re looking to have your thesis or dissertation printed and bound in time for the coming weekend or, indeed, for Tuesday 29th August if you have a deadline first thing that day. Do also bear these dates and timings in mind if you want to avoid having to upgrade to expedited services and pricing in order to hit your hand-in deadline.
