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!

I am impressed with DB Bookbinders; the online ordering was easy to navigate, receiving notifications throughout the printing and binding of my thesis confirmed my confidence in the professional service.

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.

  1. On two occasions I called DB as I wasn’t sure which choice to make. They answered calls quickly and explained the options in detail. Once the order was placed they kept me aware of key developments and they finished the work well within the planned timeframe.

    The bound thesis is fantastic and is tangible evidence that my efforts to produce it were worthwhile.
    I would recommend DB Bookbinding to anyone!

  2. Printed wrong University on the cover!

  3. I am extremely happy with my printed thesis. The paper quality is excellent and both the buckram and bonded leather covers are fantastic. Thank you for being so obliging about the mix up with the covers. I would highly recommend your services to others.
