We offer a countrywide printing and binding service for postgraduate (and other) theses and dissertations. We are also able to bind examiner’s copies in soft covers, to reduce your cost. Most faculties also require a PDF copy of your work, and we are able to convert, bookmark and write your complete PDF to CD. For tertiary institutions, we offer a faster and less costly binding service for library journals.
No. We also bind academic reference journals for tertiary institutions. We offer a faster, more cost efficient service in this regard. We are able to bind a variety of products, including textbooks and curriculum vitae’s.
Production times will vary according to the number of copies required. Smaller quantities (1-4) are usually received within 3-5 working days. During national graduation periods (Feb-April, September), turnaround times are usually 7-10 working days.
Unfortunately not. As we are predominantly an online service, we do not accept hand delivered items at our premises, due to safety regulations. We are able to arrange a collection schedule for printed documents or you may courier/post your hard copies to us.
We generally receive files of up to 10mb via email. If you have many large files, you can use the yousendit.com service. It is a free service that allows you to send large files to us or any other yousendit recipients. You can sign up for a free account at www.yousendit.com, and use our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org to send us files.
Many of our clients have come to us after using free PDF converters, as not all of these programs are able to remove word processor styles and formats, as well as import bookmarks and embed fonts. We convert and bookmark your document to a higher PDF standard.
Unfortunately due to past circumstances where students have requested their theses printed and bound, and not picked up their completed copies or made drastic last minute alternate arrangements, payment is necessary before a job can be scheduled.
We deliver countrywide via door-to-door courier for urgent, time sensitive deliveries or Post Office Speed Services/counter-to-counter for regular deliveries. Due to the fragile and sensitive nature of our products, we choose not to despatch via regular post.
You can simply send us your file via email or post, or if you are in the Durban area, simply drop off your work file. Once complete, we will send the completed work/s back to you via door-to-door courier or Post Office Speed Services.
