  • Page Numbers

The page numbers are a guide to let us know how thick to make your cover. 


  • Kennys Bindery Printing

If we are printing your thesis for you we use a high-quality 120gsm white paperEvery page of every copy is printed, not photocopied, thus guaranteeing the highest quality no matter how many copies you require.


  • Printing it yourself

If you are printing your thesis yourself then please look on the side of the packaging to see what grammage the paper is (i.e. 80gsm, 100gsm, 120gms)
* please note the majority of Universities request that theses are printed on 110gms and over*


  • Double sided printing

We can print your thesis double-sided, if you require this service then put the full amount of pages on the order form and Select double-sided printing.

Note: If you are printing double-sided please be aware of your formatting. We advise to leave even margins on the page (i.e. 2.5cms on all four margins) This includes putting the page numbers in the middle of the bottom of the page and that you start every new chapter on an odd-numbered page (this sometimes means that the previous even-numbered page will need to be left blank).


  • University-specific requirements

There is an additional information section on our form, in which you may tell us if you would like the university name, school or department etc. placed on the cover or any other requirements from your University regarding the layout. You can also use this section if you require any of the words on your title to be in Italics. Please put the exact words required in the additional information section.
