Further bindings

Standard leather book binding for your PhD thesis.

Compared to the premium leather binding, the structured surface of the standard leather binding is shinier. Both versions of the leather book binding are particularly suitable for printing and binding a PhD thesis. The value of the PhD thesis is reflected in the elegance of this bond and thus leaves the best possible first impression.

  • Individual embossing on leather binding in silver, gold and black
  • Surface: smooth and shiny
  • Available in: red, blue, green and black
  • Ribbon in blue, white, silver, gold and black
  • Corners in silver, gold and black
  • Our recommendation: 10 - 370

Price: from £15.90

Available immediately.

Thermal binding is the affordable classic for PhD binding.

The thermal binding is still the most popular binding for students, as it is very inexpensive. Compared to the hardcover binding, this classic binding is less robust and does not look quite as noble. Therefore the thermal binding is the most suitable binding for large quantities. The thermal binding is the classic choice for your printing and binding your PhD thesis.

  • Colours: red, yellow, blue, green, grey, white and black
  • Surface: textured surface, transparent front cover
  • Our recommendation: 2 - 450

Price: from £9.90

Available immediately.

Spiral binding is the most affordable variant for PhD binding

You are searching for the most affordable binding for your PhD thesis? Then the spiral binding by BachelorPrint is the right choice. You have the option of a black metal or plastic spiral binding. The cover page of the PhD thesis is visible through the transparent front cover.

  • Colours: red, yellow, blue, green, grey, white and black
  • Binding options: Plastic or metal spiral binding
  • Surface: Transparent front cover, back page in textured surface
  • Our recommendation: 1 - 300 pages

Price: from £4.90

Available immediately.

Softcover gives unlimited design options for PhD thesis

The softcover gives students the chance to freely design the cover page as they like. The reason for this is the 300 g/m² strong and printable cardboard cover. All photos, logos and colours can be placed wherever you choose on the softcover.

  • Design: Printable cardboard cover for a customised design
  • Binding: Cardboard cover with a magazine appearance using 300g/m² premium paper
  • Our recommendation: up to 150 pages

Price: from £11.90

Available immediately.

Frequently asked questions

Most printing services use 80 g/m²-paper for printing and binding a PhD thesis, but if you need to print your PhD thesis double-sited, this paper is rather thin and therefore might be seethrough.

We recommend a 100 g/m²-paper that not only looks more valuable but also feels this way. With BachelorPrint, this is the standard paper for printing a PhD thesis and there are no additional costs to it. We also offer printing with 120 g/m²-paper, if you need an extra robust paper for your PhD thesis.

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

Which binding is right for your PhD thesis depends on the importance of the printed work. A Bachelor’s Thesis or Master’s Thesis is very important and therefore should be bound in a premium binding like the leather binding. If you want to hand in your PhD thesis with an application or need it for storage reasons only, a thermal binding or spiral binding should be sufficient.

BachelorPrint as 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 deliver the next day (depending on your location)
  • FREE delivery
  • No minimum order value
  • 3D live preview in the BachelorPrint online shop
  • individuell embossing with university logo
  • FREE “Type-of-work”-embossing (e. g. Bachelor’s thesis, Master’s thesis, Dissertation etc.)
  • high-quality bindings
  • FREE 100 g/m² premium branded paper

Of course, the price is crucial when printing and binding your PhD thesis. There are several reasons for the price of printing and binding. Firstly 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 a ribbon. Secondly it is also relevant how many pages you want to be printed and bound in your PhD thesis.

FOR EXAMPLE: Do you want to print your PhD thesis with 20 pages and bind it with the premium leather binding with additional embossing, the calculated price is £53,80. This is 45% less in comparion to other market prices! Plus: with BachelorPrint, your order is delivered for free!

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