Printing Services for University Students

City Printing offers several print services of interest to university students, including thesis and dissertation binding, as well as printing of posters, leaflets, and brochures. For quality professional printing of these important items, call City Printing. We offer fast, efficient service, expert advice, and affordable rates.

Thesis and dissertation binding

For Masters and PhD students, the thesis or dissertation is the culmination of years worth of intensive study and hard work. Completing this work is a momentous occasion, and it’s one that most people like to commemorate in part with one or more professionally-bound copies of their thesis or dissertation.


This classic binding option is ideal for a dissertation or shorter thesis or presentation booklet, particularly when you’re short on time. City Printing can offer a fast turn-around on wirobound books, and these are a highly cost-effective option in addition to being one of the fastest. Wirobinding offers a choice of full-colour or clear acetate covers, and both black-and-white or full-colour interior printing. Note that this option does have a page limit, which means wirobinding may not be suitable for a full-length thesis.

PUR perfect binding

Perfect binding is just what it says, producing a beautiful well-bound book with soft but sturdy covers. With the potential for a full-colour cover, this binding option really delivers when it comes to the wow factor. While this binding option can work well for a thesis or dissertation, it’s generally most often used for educational texts, novels, and similar items.

Hardback binding

This is typically the preferred option for a thesis, especially a longer work that needs a supportive binding. Hardback binding is a high-impact option that looks good, and is very hard-wearing. In most cases this is the best option for long-term binding and protection of a thesis, due to the sturdy binding and heavy covers.

Print options and embellishments

For each of these binding options you have a number of design choices. Select your preference from multiple paper and cover weights, and add a full-colour option for images and data presentation. Embellishment options include the use of white ink, spot UV, or digital foiling for the cover of the thesis.

Posters, leaflets, and brochures

For many university students thesis-binding takes care of most of their printing needs. However, depending on your course of study and where it takes you, you may find yourself needing other printed materials. For instance, posters, brochures, and leaflets may be needed for attending conferences and other events associated with thesis work, or the field of study you’re in.

If you’re in need of these items, call on City Printing for all your printing requirements. We offer posters, leaflets, brochures, and a range of items that are perfect for showcasing your work.

As with our other printed items, you’ll be able to choose from a range of print options, including black-and-white or full colour, different paper weights and sizes, as well as finishes and embellishments. Quality printing is essential for conference posters and other materials, so be sure to call on the experts at City Printing when you need these items.
