Further Bindings

Standard leather book binding for your PhD binding

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 your PhD binding. 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 pages

Price: from £15.90

Thermal binding is the affordable classic for PhD printing

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 PhD printing.
  • Colours: Red, yellow, blue, green, grey, white and black
  • Surface: Textured surface, transparent front cover
  • Our Recommendation: 2 - 450

Price: from £9.90

Spiral binding is the most affordable variant for PhD printing

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

Softcover gives unlimited design options for PhD binding

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

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 your 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.

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.
