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

  • High-quality bindings
  • FREE 100 g/m² premium branded paper

For important work, such as the PhD, we recommend high-quality, elegant bindings. For this reason, the premium leather binding is our recommendation. The leather binding not only looks chic and high quality, but it is also a real eye-catcher. You’ll make a great first impression with the leather binding.

For  PhD binding, you can either go to a copy shop or simply order your PhD thesis in an online print shop. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of the online print shop are: You can conveniently place your order from home, configure your binding and see the end product in our 3D live preview. Then simply order and get your binding with free express delivery!

BachelorPrint offers the best value for money. Additionally, we present you with no delivery costs and a free embossing position (type of work position).

You want to save extra money? Check our page for free printing!

For important academic works such as the PhD, 80 g / m² paper or 100 g / m² paper is often used. At BachelorPrint, we use 100 g / m² paper as a standard, as it is not only more robust, but also feels better when you leaf through it. However, if you want to print and bind your dissertation double-sided, we recommend you even use 120 g / m² paper to ensure that the text does not show through.
