The leather book binding – what is the surface made of?

Our leather book binding is not made of real leather, instead it is made of cardboard that has been covered with a binding only appearing to be leather. However, it is what gives the binding a high-quality appearance and makes it just look like real leather.

High-quality Customisation

Additional to the leather book bindings characteristics like sturdiness and durability, you can also equip your binding with extras. Thereby, your thesis becomes a real one-off!


Leather book binding embossing

Embossing can be added to both premium leather book binding and standard book binding. With this feature, you can add the title of  your thesis, PhD or dissertation to your cover. You can also add your university logo. BachelorPrint uses a special embossing technique on the leather binding in which heat is used to fuse each individual letter and institution logo with the cover.

Embossing in: gold, silver, black


Leather binding ribbon

Another extra that you can add to your leather book binding is the ribbon. It gives your leather book binding not only a classy look but is also very useful. The ribbon signals the importance of your thesis and thereby invites your examiner to read the paper. Additionally, your examiner will thank you for adding the ribbon to your leather binding as it simplifies reading.

Ribbon available in: silver, gold, black, white and blue

Corner Protectors

Leather book binding book corners

Corner protectors are a special addition to your leather book binding and give it an elegant look. They not only protect the corners of your binding but make it look more high quality. With corner protectors as finishing, you can transport your work carefree or take it off the shelf again and again, without defects arising from carelessness!

Corners available in: silver, gold, black

There are two different types of leather book binding: one is the standard leather binding, which has a shiny and smooth surface, and the other is premium leather binding, which has a soft and textured faux leather look. Both of these bindings can be embossed with the title of your thesis, PhD or dissertation. This is called leather binding embossing.

Leather book binding is used primarily for larger and more significant pieces of work. Thanks to the book-like appearance and the high quality, robust cover, your work will stand out from the rest.

We recommend leather binding for the following types of academic work:




Leather book binding consists of two cardboard sheets for the front and back covers and a cardboard strip for the spine. The cardboard elements are then covered with the leather binding. The material differs from premium to standard leather binding.

The pages are glued together along with two stable end pages, and then glued to the leather binding. You can configure your thesis in the online print shop to fit your personal preferences.
