There are different types and qualities of papers used for printing work, depending on what needs to be printed. Some examples of these paper types are the 80 g/m², 100 g/m² and 120 g/m² papers. At BachelorPrint, we use the 100 g/m² and 120 g/m² papers as our standard, for printing bachelors and master’s thesis. This is because they are very high quality, robust, and also enhance the quality of words when a reader browses through the thesis.

The 100g/m² and 120g/m² papers are both used in high quality printing of academic writing projects. While they are both of very high quality, the 120g/m² paper is thicker and of a higher quality than the 100g/m paper. As such, the 120g/m² paper is preferred for use in final papers, thesis, dissertations, etc due to its standard and amount of papers required for these types of projects.

Tip: At BachelorPrint, you get the 120g/m² paper as standard, if you decide to use our online Print-Shop. As opposed to copy shops, where you have to pay extra.

When printing a thesis paper, it is important to produce something of very high quality. It is recommended to print thesis papers double-sided due to the volume of pages they have. However, it is also very important to use the 120g/m² paper for thesis in order to avoid seeing through the pages to the other side of the paper. This paper type helps enhance the quality of the bachelor or master’s thesis.

There are different types of binding, depending on the importance of the academic writing work you want to print and bind. A bachelor’s thesis or master’s thesis is very important, therefore we always recommend these to be bound using premium leather binding. However, if you want to hand in your thesis with an application or need it for storage purposes only, other types of binding such as thermal binding or spiral binding should be sufficient.

Several factors influence the cost of printing and binding your bachelor or master’s thesis. They include the type of binding desired, number of pages you want printed, type of paper to print on, how quickly you want it delivered, etc. You can calculate the exact price for printing and binding through our online Print-Shop.

 Our Tip

At BachelorPrint, the 100g/m² paper is the standard paper used for thesis printing.  However, if you have a bachelor’s thesis, master’s thesis, PhD thesis or dissertation with a very high page count, we recommend you use the 120g/m² premium paper for thesis printing and have the paper printed on both sides. In doing so, you will save space and the page limit for leather binding is then not exceeded. Thanks to the thickness of the paper for thesis printing, you can’t see the text on the other side.
