Frequently asked questions
BachelorPrint recommends a 100 g/m²-paper that looks and feels pricey – plus this paper is thick enough to not be see-through if you decide to print your PhD thesis double-sided. We provide this service without any extra costs.
If you want even thicker paper just choose our 120g/m²-paper in the online print-ship.
Do you want to know more about the right paper for your PhD thesis? Read this article: Which paper for thesis printing & binding?
We think a PhD thesis is a very special paper and deserves a high-class binding like premium or standard leather binding with beautiful extras like a ribbon bookmark or corner protectors. But if you need several copies of your PhD thesis, use the cheap alternative – thermal binding!
BachelorPrint as an online printing service offers you several advantages like:
- Production of your PhD thesis within one day. Order before the countdown above has run out and we will deliver the next day (depending on your location)
- FREE delivery
- High-quality bindings
- No minimum order for FREE delivery
- 3D live preview in the BachelorPrint online shop
- Custom embossing with university logo
- FREE “Type-of-work”-embossing (e. g. Bachelor’s thesis, Master’s thesis, dissertation etc.)
- FREE 100 g/m² premium branded paper
The price always depends on the number of pages and the binding you choose for printing and binding your PhD thesis. Premium leather binding, for example, is pricey compared to thermal binding with the same number of pages. We recommend a mix of different bindings for different occasions to save money.
At BachelorPrint, we use 100 g/m² premium-paper as our printing standard and set the same price for colour and black/white printing. That means you save more money!
