Here we are then, the Final Major Project…it’s the big one! By now you’ll know which end of the camera takes the photos, that Illustrator is a wonderful world of vectors and that Comic Sans really doesn’t cut the mustard on a typographic study! (You don’t cut mustard do you? You spread it!).
With your final mark on the line, let’s make sure of two things: the book looks the best it possibly can AND that it arrives before your deadline. At Ex Why Zed we are FMP and Dissertation printing specialists and rest assured your work will be printed using the highest quality digital presses to ensure it does maximum justice to your excellent work. We just need you to give us enough time to produce it!
Submit your files early and we’ll deliver early!
Our average turnaround is 4 working days. However, as this might be the first time you have prepared artwork for print it will be rare that files are supplied completely ready for print and usually need the odd tweak or two so allow an extra day for this. We are more than happy to help and advise on preparing artwork but this can take an extra day or two and this should be allowed for in addition to the printing time.
In the last few years we are proud to have regularly printed Photography, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Fashion, Architecture, Illustration, Graphic Arts, Visual Communication, Documentary Photography and Product Design Final Major Projects to showcase the talent of students from Central St Martins, Camberwell College of Arts, UCA Epsom and Rochester, Chelsea College, Goldsmiths, Kingston University, London Metropolitan University, Nottingham Trent, Arts University Bournemouth, Birmingham City University, Glasgow School of Architecture, Glyndwr University, Lancaster University, Leeds College of Art, Manchester of School of Art and Cambridge University.
We regularly get told our prices are “better than Blurb” and we understand you are on a tight budget. Your FMP might gain you the marks you have worked for three years to achieve but with the end of term parties a nightly occurence we appreciate there is a strain on your finances right now!
Here are our top tips for keeping the price down whilst still achieving an eye catching publication:
We offer a number of amazing deals on Final Major Project printing to help you get more from your budget…
• If you would like a bespoke size to help your FMP stand out then we print them too FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE. This means you can choose a size between slightly smaller than A4 or slightly larger than A5 and we dont charge extra for this – make your FMP stand out against the rest of the class. Of course we also print a lot of A5 and A4 projects too and you can download a cover template here.
• NEW OFFER FOR 2016…If you are ordering 1 or 2 copies of a wire stitched FMP then you can have 36 pages for the same price as 12 pages.
• Another great deal…if you are ordering 1 or 2 copies* of a perfect bound FMP then you can have 96 pages for the same price as 40 pages. So, if you’re trying to cut down on content to save money on printing then you can actually increase the number of pages and still only pay the same! (*if you’re ordering 3 copies or more then the price does increase as your page total increases).
• All our prices INCLUDE delivery throughout the UK. The price we quote is the price you will pay – there are no hidden extras like delivery or Vat.

Ready to place an order?
Excellent, please send us the finished artwork using www.wetransfer.com and use the comments area to let us know the number of copies you would like to print and where we should deliver your finished FMP to. We’ll give your artwork a preflight check to make sure it’s set up correctly. If we spot anything then you’ll be the first to know and can make the necessary changes – best to allow an extra day or two for this in addition to the 4/5 days we need for printing.
