Discover our range of digital printing services

We can digitally print a wide range of products with our SRA3 size cut-sheet production presses.

These are flexible, quick and far more cost-efficient than a normal printer or photocopier.

  • Posters, booklets, flyers, orders of service and more can all be printed digitally.
  • We can print on various substrates including glossy/matt/silk paper and card; envelopes and acetates.
  • Our machines print on to materials of up to 400gsm in weight.
  • Digital printing is perfect for custom products such as calendars or greetings cards.
  • It’s also ideal for mail-merges and direct mail services.

Binding and Dissertations

Binding and Dissertations

Add the finishing touch to your project

We offer a full range of binding services and also bind dissertations for students of the University Ƶ and other institutions.

Binding adds durability whilst also giving a more professional look.

Binding Covers

We offer 3 types of binding that we can use to make your work look even more professional. These include clear or translucent plastic; mock leather-grain and windowed covers.

All of our binding comes with covers included in the price.

Wire binding

Wire Binding

These are great for easy reading because they can be opened out flat on a surface. They’re ideal for workbooks, handbooks, music, calendars etc.

Comb binding

Comb Binding

Similar to wire binding but with a plastic comb at the spine. These are also great for reading and can be opened out fully. (Normally used for thicker documents).

Thermal Binding

Thermal Binding

Thermal binding is our most durable style and uses glue to secure the pages. It reads as a book, but can’t be opened as fully as a wire/comb bind. Thermal binds are ideal for formal documents.

Dissertation and Thesis Binding

We will be happy to help you in the final stage of your academic journey!

The Print and Imaging Service can either print and bind your work or can simply bind your ready-printed copies. (Please note: we can require up to 2 working days at busy times).

University Ƶ students should note that we provide commemorative covers and thermal binding with a standard dissertation bind.

Please note: we do not currently offer hard-back binding.

Special Event Printing
