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.

This type of blue is my favourite- I just want to fall into it and get buried in it. 😂

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.
