Of course, the price is crucial when it comes to paper printing. The price depends on your personal configuration, i. e. what binding you choose, how many pieces you order or whether you want extensions to your binding such as book corners or ribbons. It is also relevant how many pages you want to be printed and bound in your paper.

At BachelorPrint, we use 100 g/m² premium-paper as standard for printing and set the same price for color and black/white printing.

You can calculate the exact price for  paper printing here: Print Shop

For the paper binding, you can choose between a usual copy shop or an online print shop.

Benefits of an online printing service are: easy ordering-process from wherever you are, delivery to your address + configuration of your binding with our 3D live preview and look inside-functionality to get a final look at your paper binding before placing an order!

This is a decision that you will need to make! Based on factors such as: the required number of copies you need, how important a paper is to your overall grade, and how many research papers will follow, we recommend using the low-cost thermal binding for simple papers. For theses and dissertations, a premium leather binding is a great option, as such an important piece of academic work requires an elegant binding!

Most printing services use 80 g/m²-paper for printing and binding a paper, but this is rather thin and therefore might be see through if you decide to print your research paper double-sided.

We recommend a 100 g/m²-paper because it not only looks more valuable but also feels that way. At BachelorPrint, this is the standard paper we use for printing a thesis and there are no additional costs to it. We also offer printing with 120 g/m²-paper.

If you want to know more about choosing the right paper for your thesis, follow this link to our article: Which paper for research paper printing & binding?

BachelorPrint offers the best value for money. Additionally, we present you with free delivery and a free embossing position (‘type of work’ position) for your project.
