We work in partnership with J S Wilson & Son Bookbinders to offer a five working day thesis hardbinding service in line with University standards. Binding is available in a selection of colours (a swatch book is available from SU reception on request) and a variety of finishing options. Prices vary from £46.99 for cloth binding with spine lettering to £57.98 for spine and front cover lettering with foil engraved crest. Head and Tail bands are also available for an additional charge.

A hardbinding order form should be completed with your printing outlining your binding preferences, cover material and text. Simply drop off your thesis or print at Cambridge SU Reception by 3 pm on Thursday and it will be ready for collection from the SU Lounge the following Friday.

Please note that we will be closed on Thursday, the 14th of December, and will be reopening on the following day at 9:30 am on Friday, the 15th of December.
For this reason the deadline to complete the hard binding orders on that week will be 3pm on Wednesday.(13th of December).


Payments for hardbinding can be made on the website.

Here is the form to be completed for you to download, or you can complete one when you arrive.
