Dissertation binding, contribute to your academic field and showcase your work with professionalism and style.  It’s time to order some bound copies of your work that you will be proud to submit. 


DB Bookbinders specializes in providing beautifully-printed and bound theses and dissertations. We can deliver to your university or a location of your choice within the timeframe you need. 

We are a family-owned business in binding for over 30 years. That means craftmanship passed down through generations and that fine quality and authenticity that’s hard to get with other binders.  

Attention to detail is applied to every seal, edge and surface – even down to the sound and ‘feel’ when you open it. With our traditional methods, quality materials and processes, we know what works.  

The DB bindery is equipped with the best equipment, tools and most experienced team on the job for the printing and binding of your thesis or dissertation.  

With so many styling and finishing options, we can customize the binding of your thesis or dissertation to a classic, modern or traditional feel. All thesis and dissertation sizes and requirements are catered for.  

You’re on a deadline and we understand. Let us know when you need it and we will go above and beyond to help. A helpful, trustworthy and reliable binder is crucial when it’s something as important as your thesis or dissertation, representing years of academic work.  

DB Bookbinders has an easy online thesis uploading platform plus personalized, responsive service. We accept bulk orders and smaller single-unit orders too. 


You can order multiple bound copies of your thesis or dissertation in the same or different cover types, with customized personalization. Our thesis and dissertation printing and binding options are listed below. 

  • Buckram hard binding – A hard-wearing woven book cloth, with a slight sheen and impregnated with a wipe-able coating.  
  • Vegan leather hard binding Vegan leather with an embossed coating and texture, similar to grain leathers in terms of quality and durability. 
  • Genuine leather hard binding – Full-grain leather which has not been processed in any way. The grain is left completely intact and natural blemishes such as scars and wrinkles are maintained. Offers the greatest degree of fiber strength and breathability. 


Whether your preference is classic, traditional, sleek or modern we can craft your thesis or dissertation binding to suit. All thesis and dissertation binding sizes and styles are accommodated. 

Remember you can order multiple bound styles of your thesis or dissertation in the same order. You might like to go ‘all out’ for your special or personal copy, as a keepsake.   

  • Cover types and colors – exclusive color range available, from classic such as Royal Blue and Federation Green, to contemporary colors such as purple and yellow.  
  • Printing styles – color or black and white, various fonts and italicized wording, double or single-sided. 
  • Gold, silver and black stamping – for key details like the title (including words to be italicized or a shortened title for the spine), year of submission and university. 
  • Premium foil flourishing – we have the specialized equipment for this intricate ‘extra fine’ detailing done the traditional way. 
  • Marbled endpapers – on the inside front and back covers of your theses or dissertations.  
  • Debossed borders  
  • Book ribbon and CD / map pockets  

If you’re unsure, we can assist with theme and personalization options for your thesis or dissertation to help you visualize and choose. We aim for perfection and it will be a truly ornamental finish.

Quality of the print, bindning, and leather is perfect. You can tell the people working at DB Bookbinders take the time and care to ensure a quality product. Their communication is also highly regarded. The colour leather I was after was not available but I was willing to wait a few months and it was worth it to get what I wanted.

I graduated last year and didn't think about printing my doctoral thesis until recently. Found DB Bookbinders and I'm so happy when I picked it up! Wish I done it earlier, but it's never too late:)

The team at DB Bookbinders have always been fantastic to deal with. We have used them to produce, custom/branded folders, compendiums, note books, diaries and much more. The products that DB produces is of high quality and really represent our brand in professional way. Better yet, it's all local Australian Made and we know our business is contributing to another local businesses success. We have a national company and DB Bookbinders delivers exceptional results to all our offices. I would highly recomend anyone, especially business owners and corporate organisations getting your printing, binding and custom products from DB Bookbinding.

Doing everything on line, there is always a niggling feeling and a question "will this end well"? Some clunky aspects of the online form heightened these uneasy feelings at the time. However, I am glad to say it did. This ended extremely well! DB Bookbinders through their smart messaging system kept me informed at various stages of the process. The product was delivered on time and without any damage. Well done, DB Bookbinders! Mind you, I don't think I will be backing up with another PhD thesis anytime soon!

Absolutely love my bound thesis made by DB Bookbinders, it looks so amazing! Loved the constant updates throughout the process and it was delivered promptly once finished. Thank you so much for your amazing work!! The only problem I had was with the courier, not a problem at all with DB Bookbinders - the courier had delivered my thesis to the wrong address, luckily it was only next door so it was found eventually. I would suggest using registered AusPost or a more reliable courier.
