Important information










What to do if you are running out of time

Make sure you have enough ink and paper to print out your work. It can take several hours to print out and running out of supplies in the middle of the night can be a problem. It may be quicker to take your work on disc/memory card to a copy shop where they have fast printers. Plan which one to use.

It is not possible to make any changes once your work is handed in for binding and there is no space on our premises for you to make any final checks so please make sure that all copies are in the correct order. A good way of checking is to place them side by side and make sure they are the same thickness. Flick through them to make sure all the pages are the right way round. A common mistake is forget the references or even your title page.

What to do if you are seriously running out of time and are having problems holding it all together and you haven't slept for 2 days

If it's getting really scary, keep us informed of your progress. There's nothing worse than someone turning up unexpectedly five minutes before we close and expecting us to bind it straight away.

Never trust your printer

I used to wonder how on earth my epson printer could manage to print pages out of order.

Here's the proof. I finally caught it in the act.

The paper would loop over itself like a spring and when it reached a certain tension, spring flat sliding itself into another part of the document.
