Dissertation Hardcover

Welcome to the Lincoln Bookbindery in Urbana, IL.  We do primarily sewn hardcover binding. We specialize in binding new, previously unbound material and one-of-a-kind custom books. We do a lot of thesis binding, as well as micro-editions (1-100 books) of family histories, memoirs, and cookbooks. We've bound single copies of handwritten and illustrated children's books, poetry books, and even volumes of e-mail. Don't be shy, we've seen it all.  We also do some book repair (please click on "book repair and rebinding" for more information).

Library Standard Binding (Buckram)
The least expensive book we offer is the library standard binding. This is machine oversewn, with a black buckram cloth cover binding of acid-free construction. Your last name and date of degree are gold stamped on the spine. This is the binding style that graduate students need in order to meet the requirements for a Doctorate at Princeton University. It is also attractive enough for presentation to advisors or undergraduate thesis submissions.

Books up to ½-inch thick are made with a square (unrounded) spine. We round and back the spine for sizes above ½ an inch.

In addition, we gold foil stamp the book’s title and your full name on the front cover along with a separator line between the title and name. On the spine we will put your last name and date of degree, along with decorative double lines at the top and bottom of the spine. Our stamping design can be varied to meet the requirements of your school. Stamping colors available include gold, silver, copper, white, black, red and blue.

The most popular buckram colors for covers are black, dark gray, dark red, maroon, orange, royal blue, navy, and dark green (see below). If you require a different color please contact us to discuss availability. Colors below are approximate. Please call us if you would like to see a sample.
