Design. Print. Bind. Ship.


Since 1952, Smith-Shattuck Bookbinding has been binding theses and dissertations. Over time our traditional methods have continued to adapt to new materials and techniques that become available. The result is archival books produced from the highest quality acid-free materials. Each book is machine oversewn with unbleached cotton thread and archival endpapers. This sewing process creates an exceptionally strong binding with maximum flexibility.

Our standards allow us to create high quality Class-A library bindings that meet the guidelines of the Library Binding Institute. We also provide the flexibility needed to meet your individual needs.

Both Princeton and RutgersUniversities recommend us for dissertation and thesis binding. In addition, our company can meet the requirements of any university for color, size or stamping.

We are also able to bind A4 size, as well as custom, minute, lab, retirement, presentation, family history, genealogy, ring binders, and leather books.

We offer UPS delivery within the United States. Local courier service is available to Princeton students, directly to the respective department secretary’s office.

  • Fast turnaround
  • Archival quality materials
  • Personalized attention & full customization

We accept MasterCard and Visa.
