Thesis Binding

WCU has moved to online submission of theses and doctoral culminating projects.  But if you would like a bound copy of your thesis, we can help.  There are two options:

OPTION 1) A FASTER (and more popular) option is to contact and work directly with the bindery by sending them a PDF of your thesis to be printed and bound. You can find them at www.acmebinding.com. Click on “thesis book binding” from the list on the left to make your personal selections. It’s a little more expensive working this way, but it is MUCH faster, you can pay instantly with a credit/debit card, they ship it directly to your address, you can choose the color of your cover, and there is even an option of putting the WCU seal on the front cover.

OPTION 2) You can bring a printed copy of your thesis to FHG Library to be bound (we recommend 22-24lb 100% cotton paper to ensure longevity), along with a cashier’s check (or money order) totaling $20.86 per thesis made out to HF GROUP. We do not print theses for students. The theses that are sent to the bindery from the library come back with a cover that is navy blue with gold lettering on the spine.
