Softcover or soft binding offers students the most design freedom for the cover. As a rule, it is suitable for all academic works where a particular design with different colours and photos is required.
Your customised cover design must be uploaded in the BachelorPrint online shop while placing the order. To upload the design it must be a PDF. The cover will be printed exactly like your PDF, that is why you should be sure that your uploaded design is the right one and that you’re statisfied with the placement of the images and the text.
The special feature of the soft binding is the customisable cover. You can put every colour, grapic, font or images on the soft binding. The default colour is white because of the printable paper.
The soft binding is produced in three steps. At first, we need your customised cover design in the right format (you find the design template in our download-center). The second step is our part, according to the number of pages the softcover will be measured.
The third step is the binding of the pages and the cover with a special pressing method. In the fourth and last step the edges are cut to finish the look of your softcover.
The fact that the features of the soft binding are totally customisable is especially important for students in creative majors. It has a medium to high page count so the most types of work are possible to bind with the softcover.
We recommend soft binding for the following types of work:
The soft binding itself starts from £ 11.90. Everything else depends on the number of pages of your work and the additional features you want.
