IT’S FINALLY ARRIVED!!
I was a bit lazy and hadn’t gotten around to printing my Thesis yet. It’s no longer done by the University itself as everything is now done online, so if you want a hard copy, you have to do it all yourself.
First you gotta pick the colour scheme.
I was always set on dark blue with silver writing.
But then I discovered that you don’t have to have either gold or silver writing (as was the most common colour scheme). You can also go copper. And my mind was blown. 🤯
But then I wasn’t sure about the dark blue and copper combo. So I looked at the colour swatches and picked out one that I thought would match.
So I had the colour (cobalt) and writing (copper) set, and then it was just about nutting out the finer details. Did I want a fancy flourish on the cover? Did I want a border, and if so, what type?
After nutting out the customisations, I ended up with this…
All in all it took a bit over a week from ordering to arriving, which was a whole lot quicker than I thought.
Obviously it looks even better in reality (photos never come out the same), so I’m very happy with it.
I just need to be very gentle and careful with it now. Being as clumsy as I am, I’m very scared I’ll ruin it. I also have very sweaty palms, so I have to be careful flicking through it… maybe I’ll just wear gloves? 😅😂
If anyone is interested, I went to Whites Law Bindery in Melbourne’s South East.
