Comb Binding at Sidney

The Library Office provides a comb-binding service for your assignments, dissertations, notes etc. Covers are clear plastic on the front, with blue or black leathergrain card on the back, and spine sizes are up to 330 sheets typical (80gsm) A4 paper.

All spine combs are black. If you particularly need other colours, or you have special structural requirements such as fold-out map pages, please let us know in advance.

Cost is £1.00 up to 100 pages, £2.00 up to 200 pages and £3.00 for over 200 pages (using 2 covers and 1 spine). You may pay by cash, or via your College bill, whichever you prefer. To get something bound, simply bring the pages to the Library Office during staffed hours and we'll do it as soon as we can.

The binding process can usually be completed in a few minutes. There is normally no need to book a specific date and time, unless you are likely to present something for binding very close to a submission deadline, in which case please let us know beforehand.

If you have any questions about this service, please don't hesitate to get in touch (

The service is available only to Sidney members.
