Handy information

You need to make sure that you have your dissertation or thesis printed and bound according to the criteria set by your university.

Are you a bit confused by the types of binding? We have listed a brief description for each type to help you get your head around dissertation binding and thesis binding.

Comb and wire bound

A comb bound dissertation uses a plastic comb spine which can accommodate hole punched papers. A PVC board then covers the front and a firm board is placed at the back which creates a firmly supported dissertation or thesis.

Coil bound

This type of dissertation binding uses a spring like coil to bind the papers. The papers lie flat and the final document is easy to read.


This type of dissertation binding will bind your whole document with a glued spine and a soft cover, quite like a paperback book.


This is the most popular form of dissertation binding or thesis binding. It is sewn and glued with solid boards for the highest standard of finish.
