Binding Theses, Dissertations, and Special Projects

Binding & Finishing facilitates binding of theses, dissertations and special projects for members of the Stanford community (current/former students, faculty, and staff).

 

Theses/dissertations

Students can print out copies of their work and deliver to the Binding & Finishing department for binding or electronically submit a PDF to be printed and bound. In both instances, the student will need to complete the online ordering form (PDFs are submitted through the form). As of January 2020, only binding requests sent via the online form will be fulfilled. All binding is done to established guidelines.
