Most often binding will fall into two main categories hard bindings and soft bindings.


Hard Binding – Hard binding offers a truly sophisticated and highly polished look. Hard bindings are sewn and case bound according to you Universities specification in a library buckram cloth. Hard bindings are typical required for all final submission of a thesis. These are the most durable and rigid options you have when choosing the right binding for your thesis. Hard bindings also tend to come with the option of front and spine lettering in either gold or silver foil.


Soft Binding – Soft binding utilizes a flexible card with a contemporary square spine. The binding is done to your Universities specifications and is done in hard wearing library buckram. Soft binding is often required or recommended for the first submission of your thesis. Thermal glue is used to secure all the pages in place resulting in a flexible yet strong binding. Soft binding can include lettering on the spine in either gold or silver foil.

While you will want to ensure you have the hard and soft bindings for your final thesis projects you may need to consider a binding option to help you keep your thesis or dissertation organized and neat as you continue to work on it. For these cases, you may want to consider thermal binding or simple bindings.


Simple Binding – Often used for temporary binding, the simple binding is also sturdy enough to be used for permanent thesis binding. The traditional simple binding displays a clear plastic front and a black or another color spine.


Thermal Binding – Thermal binding is similar to simple binding as it comes with a clear plastic front cover. It also incorporates a standard card back cover. The thermal binding option offers a very clean and neat looking binding. Thermal glue is used to secure the pages in place and most often these types of bindings can be done on demand.
