Essay binding... what?

What's this essay binding stuff? and is there a service at Uni that can do the binding?

To clarify, the essay needs ..

-Harvard rules of referencing
-Double spacing
-Ariel/Times New Roman
-Font Size 12
-Indenting of quotes

-2x printed copies - Bound
-1x CD with it on

... Seems like a lot of stuff to do. More work than the actual Minor Project! Crazy stuff. I hope there is a binding service at Uni, else I'm screwed.

  1. Jonny - the university will be full of people trying to get their dissertations bound - go find a commercial service somewhere - do a google search in your local area for dissertation binding service; I also suggest that, instead of 'printing', get one copy printed and go get it photocopied somewhere; stay clear of the university, as you won't be the only one having a panic; throw money at this problem - find a binding service, phone first thing tomorrow; get it sorted.

  2. What is the binding exactly? I don't understand it O.O
    Can't I just clip it into a plastic folder thing?

  3. Yeah, Is there no way we can give it in a folder would make life so much easier, I cant even seem to find an area local to me that even offers the service the only place I can think of is Uni or Staples apparently

  7. Most grateful Lisa. Thanks. I believe Staples will do them also. Dan also thinks he's found a place near to us. We'll get in touch with them right away!

  8. The binding doesn't have to be posh, it just has to guard against the dissertation coming apart and pages getting lost etc. You can have it spiral bound or use plastic bindings etc. It needn't be expensive - just practical.
