An ETD submission guide for ScholarWorks @ Georgia State University

Introduction

The University does not require printed copies of theses or dissertations, but many students would like one or more printed copies for themselves. Below are some options for getting copies printed.

Paw Prints

PawPrints is the University Printing Shop located on the ground level of T Deck, Atlanta Campus. Information PawPrints provided for dissertation and thesis printing:

  1. Printing runs $0.10 a page. 
  2. Binding:
    • There is an initial setup-cost of $80.00  for Hard Cover-stock perfect binding (much like the books in the library) and an additional $2.50 to bind the dissertation.
    • There is an initial setup-cost of $40.00  for Wire-O binding (double wire spiral with a hard cover) and an additional $1.50 to bind the dissertation. 
  3. It would benefit the students to partner up with other students who want to have a dissertation bound at the same time to help reduce the cost per person. While one student would initial pay $82.50 to have one book perfect bound, a group of ten students could share the cost of the setup-cost along with the additional cost of binding the dissertation which would make each perfect bound book cost $10.50, and while one student would initial pay $41.50 to have one book spiral bound, a group of ten students could share the cost of the setup-cost along with the additional cost of binding the dissertation which would make each book cost $4.15.

There is a 4 day turnaround for either options, also once an order has been placed for either binding option then the customer(s) can not add additional dissertations to bound unless creating a completely new request.
