Hard Bindings - Thesis & Dissertation

University and College written specifications may appear like this… “bindings should be SewnUniversity of Wales - Cardiff University - 01102009498 (11).jpg or Mechanically Fixed; hard cover with (colour) **** colour number *** material; with lettering Gold/Silver on the front cover Title, Name Initials, Degree/Course and year; the same should be on the spine except Title, reading Up/Down the spine”.

We at City Binders bookbinders bind Hard bindings which are – Mechanically fixed/Sewn; glued up, forwarded on then trimmed on all 3 edges (1-2mm); the Hard bound cover is made with oversized 2-3mm thick greyboard. Library Buckram - Arbelave cloth turned in over the boards; lettered Up/Down spine and front board, if specifications require; attaching the Hard binding case to the trimmed book block.

The standard pricing structure for Hard bound Thesis and Dissertations includes the spine lettering, front board or front cover lettering is an additional charge above the standard cost. This is because the established Universities Hard binding standard has included spine lettering. Modern Hard bindings for Thesis and Dissertations may require front board (front cover) lettering.
