What our customers say

University of birmingham.

The University of Birmingham, chartered in 1900, is located in Edgbaston, Birmingham. It is the first civic university in the UK to get a royal charter, which was awarded after it succeeded the Queen’s College and the Mason Science College. The University of Birmingham is not only a leading academic institution but is also a place of wonder with historical artefacts. Here are 5 interesting facts you should know about the university:

1. Holds the record for the tallest free-standing clock tower in the world The Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower is the world’s tallest free-standing clock tower at 100m. The tower is popularly called Old Joe, after the University’s founder and first chancellor. The tower was built in 1900 and redesigned by the chancellor using the Torre del Mangia campanile as inspiration.

2. It is home to Sir Eduardo Paolozzi’s major pieces of sculpture The sculpture of English scientist Michael Faraday sits proudly over 5 metres high at the university. Donated in 2000 as an honour to centenary celebrations, the sculpture is one of the amazing pieces of the legendary sculptor, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi. Paolozzi is also famous for the mosaic patterns on the walls of Tottenham Court Road tube station in London and Paul McCartney’s Red Rose Speedway album cover.

3. Old Joe is home to Peregrine falcons Peregrine falcons have been declared an endangered species and are difficult to come by. You can, however, have a sight of them perching up the Old Joe.

4. A train station was built specifically to serve the university The University train station was built to specifically serve the university. It is the only train station in Great Britain to have ever been built for such a purpose. The station now serves over 2.5 million passengers every year.

It is situated on the Cross-City line, running to Lichfield from Redditch through the Birmingham New Street. You can also get direct rides to Cardiff, Nottingham and Hereford. A ride to the Birmingham city centre only takes 7 minutes and there are trains at intervals of 10 minutes.

5. You could get a degree in mining Up to 1960s, the university offered degrees in mining and had an underground mine for teaching aid. Mining was such an innovative subject at the time as minerals powered the local economies. Even though the mine was closed and the mining courses dropped by the university, it is one of the historical places you can visit in the university.

Thesis printing Birmingham

Thesis printing & binding Birmingham

All the work required to write a thesis makes it a pretty significant piece of work, and the decision you make regarding printing and binding your thesis is an important one. You certainly want it to make an impression on your examiner.

There are several options for thesis printing and binding, but we feel that leather book binding is one of the best, along with thermal binding. Leather book binding looks impressive in its professional appearance, plus you can choose embossing to add that extra flair.

Should you choose to have your leather book binding produced by the online Birmingham printing services, take note that the most common type of binding used is springback binding. Here, your thesis is only bound to the front and back covers, so your paper might not be as durable and long-lasting as you’d like.

Thermal binding, on the other hand, looks very sleek, and it’s not as costly when printing and binding a thesis. We recommend a transparent cover, allowing your readers to see your cover page.

There are so many options for thesis binding with the online Birmingham printing services.

We recommend: Leather book binding or thermal binding from our online print shop Birmingham

Dissertation printing & binding Birmingham

The act of spending several months researching and writing a Ph.D. thesis or dissertation is no small feat, and that’s why we feel high-quality leather book binding for dissertation binding is the way to go.

Quality standards and upgrade options are features to factor in when you consider printing and binding your final paper. The online Birmingham printing store has options such as embossing, corner protectors and more, and your final paper is totally worth it.

Note: It’s common to have to submit several copies of your thesis, so thermal binding is likely the least costly option for printing and binding your Ph.D. thesis. Dissertation printing has never been so easy!

Important: It’s quite common that several copies of your final paper have to be submitted, making thermal binding the gentlest option on your pocketbook if you’re a Birmingham student looking into printing and binding your dissertation.

We recommend: Leather book binding with embossing or thermal binding from our online print shop Birmingham when you need several copies.

dissertation printing Birmingham

Paper printing & binding Birmingham

Scientific papers are key to academic studies and can be a few dozen pages to several hundreds of pages in length. The flexible thermal binding available through our online Birmingham printing services is ideal for paper binding .

If you’re looking for a cost-effective option for printing and binding a paper, thermal binding is sleek and minimalist. We suggest a clear cover so people can read your cover page right away. Select the binding that you like most when you use the 3D configurator in our online print shop Birmingham. Paper printing was never this easy!

The Birmingham online printing shop also has spiral binding- another great binding option. Spiral binding is practical, and you can select either metal spiral binding or plastic comb binding. Spiral binding holds up to 300 pages – perfect for term papers or scientific papers.

We recommend: Thermal binding or spiral binding when you use our online Birmingham printing services.

Leather book binding

The number one recommendation made by the BachelorPrint online print shop Birmingham is premium leather book binding. Elegant and sophisticated looking, it makes every drop of sweat you put into your dissertation or final paper worth it.

Both kinds of leather book bindings, premium and standard binding, are quality options for your final paper; the choice is up to you.

Unlike standard leather book binding, premium leather book binding has a matte finish, the effect of which is to tone down the cover’s colour, whereas the glossy finish of standard leather book binding makes colours appear brighter.

There are upgrades available for both types of leather book binding through the online print shop Birmingham- such as front cover and spine embossing. And should you really want your leather book binding to shine, try out ribbon bookmarks or corner protectors; both come in a range of colours.

Durable yet sophisticated, leather book binding will turn your final paper into a showpiece, something you can proudly put on display.

We recommend: Leather book binding for dissertations and final papers.

Leather book binding premium Birmingham

Thermal binding

The thermal binding offered by the online print shop Birmingham holds up to 450 pages.

Thermal binding’s simple design will never lose its appeal. Its clear front cover has readers reading the cover page instantly.

The back cover and the spine in thermal binding are made using thick, textured cardboard. There are seven colours to choose from.

Thermal binding is excellent for shorter papers, such as term papers or research papers. Its lower price makes it a great go-to when you need to print and bind several copies of dissertations or theses.

We recommend: Thermal binding for all types of scientific papers having a higher page count.

Comb Binding

Spiral binding is another excellent type of binding offered by our Birmingham printing services. Spiral binding, or comb binding, might look less ostentatious, but it’s still a good deal for your money. Comb binding holds up to 300 pages, great for shorter essays and research papers.

The online print shop Birmingham has a choice of metal spiral binding or plastic comb binding with a clear front cover to increase the visibility of your title page. Choose from 7 colours for the back cover of your spiral binding.

To produce comb binding and spiral binding, holes are precision-punched through all the pages at once, and then a metal or plastic spiral is inserted. Low-cost and practical, spiral binding is ideal when you need several copies of your academic work.

We recommend : Comb binding and spiral binding for smaller assignments, papers and essays.
