Questions – find your answers here.
What stock paper do you print on?
We print on 100gsm white stock paper.
Why do you only allow PDF documents to be bound?
PDF is the industry standard for document sharing which means that we can more reliably print your document regardless of the original platform or format of the original source document.
How and where can I convert my document into a PDF?
Do you accept multiple PDFs?
Can I print my thesis on double sided paper (duplex printing)?
Yes, the mythesis website does offer a duplex printing option. You can select this using the Duplex Printing checkbox.
If you choose the duplex option and you have had to merge a university scholarship form into the front of your thesis, make sure you add an extra blank page after it so that the title page of your thesis is not printed on the reverse side.
What is the minimum and maximum number of pages for a bound thesis?
We can bind documents with as few as 30 sheets of A4 paper, however any less than that and we may not be able to fit text onto your spine.
We can bind up to 500 pages, if you have more than 500 we would recommend splitting your document into multiple volumes, and binding each volume separately.
Is it advisable to put a gutter margin (to make the left margin slightly bigger than the right margin) to make space for the binding?
Binding your thesis usually takes about 5-6mm off the sewn edge. We would recommend that you accommodate this in your document layout.
Taken the gutter margin into consideration what would you consider being an overall suitable inside margin?
We recommend leaving an inside margin of 30mm (3cm).

Select “Other” for a customisable template
Some of my pages are colour; can I have some colour and some black and white?
Yes, you can select within the order process which pages you wish to be printed in colour.
If I have special requirements is there any where I can specify these?
Yes, we do have a section called “Order notes” this is a text field for you to make any comments or notes in connection with your order.
My thesis contains some A3 pages. How will these get included in my binding?
When creating your order, in the “Order Notes” field, please advise us of the page numbers of A3 pages. We will then fold these into the binding so that the A3 page fits within the binding but opens out.
How is my binding assembled and does it meet the university requirements?
Hard bindings and soft bindings are bound for durability and flexibility and comply with university regulations.
What payment methods do you offer?
You can pay securely via debit or credit card. We also accept PayPal.
Do you offer a secure delivery service?
What are the Courier's delivery hours?
UPS delivery times are as follows:
- Residential addresses: 9.00 am – 7.00 pm
- Business addresses: 9.00 am – 5.30 pm
Can you deliver direct to the university?
We can deliver direct to the university, however; we would require a delivery contact, department and full delivery address.
Can you deliver to multiple addresses?
Unfortunately we do not have a facility to split an order and send to different addresses. If you have 2 bindings for example and you wish to have one copy of your own and one to be sent the university, you would need to create separate orders.
How do I track my order?
You will receive a text message and an email from us once your order has left. This will give you a link to our courier website along with a tracking number so you can see the status of your order.
