ETDs - Electronic Theses & Dissertations: Printed Copies of ETDs

An ETD submission guide for ScholarWorks @ Georgia State University

Paw Prints

PawPrints is the University Printing Shop located on the 1st floor of Kell Hall, 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.
