Spink & Thackray has been offering bookbinding and rebinding services to students for many years now, providing scholars with beautifully bound thesis, dissertations and documents.

Our dedicated MyThesis division allows university students to upload their dissertations in PDF format to our portal for it to then be printed, bound and covered.

Binding, covering and lettering is carried out by our team of highly skilled craftsmen and craftswomen, many of whom have been with us for more than a decade.

They really are the best in the business and without them we would not be able to provide students with the quality binding, printing and rebinding services we have built our reputation on.

In addition to dissertation binding, we can also bind and cover documents, reports and achievements for all students and not just those studying at university.

We also work with education establishments such as universities and schools to create yearbooks that allow students to capture the successes and memories of that academic year.

Our rebinding services are popular with students, allowing them to repair well-read books that they need to read and re-read over the course of their academic studies.

Spink & Thackray is proud to support students in their studies and to offer the products and services they need to succeed and look back on their achievements over the years.
