A lot of students find themselves writing reems and reems of pages for portfolios and dissertations within their final year of university. These extremely important pieces of work take a lot of time to produce and the finished article needs to reflect this. The best way to present this type of work is through the use of professional printing services. They will ensure the final piece not only looks good but reflects the amount of time an effort one has put into it.

Here are 5 reasons to use a specialist student printing service:

Professional printing looks better

There is no denying a professionally printed piece will look better than anything you can print off at home or at a copy shop. The paper stock, the ink, the cover and the binding, will all look far superior than anything that can be achieved from home. And with something as important as a dissertation printing, it’s worth going that extra mile to show your commitment.

A typical dissertation from John E Wright includes a hard back book with embossed lettering on the front and spine if required, with a matt buckram style cloth material cover – a far cry better than a ring bound/paper cover.

There are superior binding options

Many students do not know where to begin when it comes to deciding on the right type of binding for their dissertation. Choosing a professional printing service can help! They can advise on the best types of dissertation binding to ensure your final product is printed accordingly. Just make sure of any university submission guidelines as each institution’s requirements can be vary, and they can be quite strict.

Time saving benefits

Rather than having to go back and forth to a copy shop, or buy additional paper and ink for your at-home printer, a professional printing service can assist you from the comfort of your own home. They can help you set up your documents to print from a word file, and the printing turnaround is usually 2-3days with express options available.

More cost effective

It might not seem like it, but it can be significantly cheaper to use a student printing service than to purchase your own printer, ink and paper. Especially if you are printing bulkier items such as portfolios and dissertations. Photographic printing can also be cheaper as you might want to print some posters for an event. Professional services can offer posters from A4 to A0, with full bleed images, trimmed to the correct size, allowing more flexibility that your average at-home printer.

Extensive choice of finishes & appearance

Because of their knowledge and experience, they can provide you with a lot more choice than what you can expect from your at-home printer. From different paper weights to uncoated, gloss coated and silk coated stock options.
