Students of this course are required to submit one copy to the department for binding
- In order to bind your work we need, at least, a 25mm margin on the left hand edge of each page and 20mm on all other edges. This is so we can tidy up the page edges in our guillotine. Any print or pictures that fall too close to the edge of the page may be in danger of being cut.
- Maximum thickness of pages that can be bound into a single volume is 76mm (approx 700 sheets of 80gsm)
- We recommend using paper of 90gsm.
- We recommend printing single sided only.
- Please do not include any paper clips or staples in the work
- Make sure your work is carefully collated before handing in. It is not possible to make any amendments, such as adding pages, to work once submitted for binding. If you do find a mistake you will need to bring complete new copies of your work and repeat the process.
- Make sure you have a title page
- Any pages printed on paper larger than A4 will need to be folded back 2cm from the right hand edge. This is to avoid the fold being cut off in the guillotine.
- A3 papers can be bound in but need to be folded. From the left hand edge, measure and mark19cm and 32cm. Fold the sheet towards you at the 19cm mark and then fold back on itself at the 32cm mark. This will form a zigzag.
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.
And finally (hopefully you'll never need it)
