Honors Theses - Binding of Personal Copies
Binding Personal Copies Ends August 20, 2021
Effective August 20, 2021, the Libraries will no longer offer personal binding services. Documents dropped off and paid for before August 20, 2021 will be processed with the Libraries' next shipment. Library binding shipments are done quarterly, so it will be at least 16 weeks before you receive your copies.
Many companies offer bindery services. The Libraries do not recommend specific binderies, but offer the following suggestions for your convenience.
- Alkek Print Shop (plastic comb binding)
- PhD Book Binding (hard cover, softcover)
- Thesis on Demand (hard cover)
- Local office supply and copy shops often offer comb binding.
- Local print shops often offer comb and softcover binding.
- Many cities have small binderies that you can find by searching for “bindery near me” or “bindery in cityname.”
