LocationWe are located in Harmans Cross, just outside Swanage in Dorset.  Our premises are on the main road between Corfe Castle and Swanage and very easy to find.  We are a 15 minute walk from the Harmans Cross Station on the Swanage Steam Railway. See map

Do you do leather binding?We do not use leather for our hardcase binding. We use arbelave library buckram which is waterproof and hardwearing and is available in a range of colours.

What form of payment do you accept? - We accept payment by cash or cheque only.  We do not accept payment by credit card.


What colour can I choose for the finished volume?You are free to choose whatever colour you want. There is no standard colour for any magazine. We have a range of colours - please see our colour chart in the binding section.

How long does it take?4 to 6 weeks is the normal turnaround time.

Covers on or off?Please either remove covers yourself or specify that covers are to be removed.

InsertsPlease remove any sections that you do not want bound in eg calenders, supplements etc. If left in the magazine they will be bound behind the issue. We can remove and bind all supplements at the back of the volume. Please be specific in your instructions, but please contact us for guidance.

Can you match existing volumes?We keep a record of colour, size and position of lettering. This enables us to match subsequent volumes exactly. For new customers with volumes not previously bound by us we will endeavour to match the colour of cloth and position of lettering on receipt of a sample.


How long does it take? - We offer a standard 5 day service for a hardbound thesis.  A 3 day service may be available by pre-booking.  Please telephone to check.

Lettering - We can letter the spine and front cover to comply with your University's instructions. Personal copies can be bound in a colour of your choice should you wish.
