It is pleasing to see that the list contains many universities whose students use the university thesis binding services from The Document Centre here in SE1, near London Bridge, South London, whether that’s via the walk-in shop or via the online ordering system on our website. There, students can upload their thesis or dissertation in Acrobat PDF format and then choose (or specify) the university regulation specification for the cover binding and any other bolt-on extras like register ribbons, gold or silver foiled lettering, burning or duplication of CDs and DVDs and indeed pockets to hold such disks. They can also choose from same-day services which are available in all but the busiest of times, or bookbinding services from 1 day to 3 days. The Document Centre also offer free delivery of theses/dissertations to many of the major London universities. Just see the thesis binding ordering page (and drop-down selectors) for the many options available.
