Softcover or soft binding offers students the most design freedom for the cover. As a rule, it is suitable for all academic work where a particular design with different colours and photos is required.

Softcover is perfect for a custom-designed cover of a piece of work having a medium to high page count. Softcover has a range of applications, from a short academic work to a Master’s thesis.

We recommend softcover for the following types of work:







With softcover binding, there are no particular colour variants; therefore, it is always displayed as ‘Customised’. The standard softcover colour is white. This is because the printable paper cover is white.

However, this cover can be completely customised. All colours, shapes, photos, and logos can be put on the softcover.

To individual cover design

There are four steps to producing a softcover. First, the customised cover design in the desired format (standard A4 format) is required from the customer. In the second step, the softcover is measured and adjusted according to the number of pages.

In the third step, the printed pages are put into the cover and bound together using a special pressing method. In the final step, the edges are cut to give the work a clean, finished look.

Unfortunately, the finishing touches of embossing, and the addition of corners and a ribbon, are not an option with softcover binding.

However, when you add customised cover design, you can make an aesthetic statement and refine your work.

Book thickness of soft binding

In addition to standard A4 format, soft binding offers flexible format sizes that can be cut on demand, up to A3. Depending on the paper grade, up to 150 pages can be integrated into the soft binding.

Double-sided printing is therefore possible for up to 300 pages. If using thicker grade 120 g/m² paper, the document bound in softcover binding can be up to 135 pages in length.

Recommendation: our full service before selecting softcover

Individual cover design for softcover

Softcover requires that the student provide a customised design. It should be noted that the customised cover design must be uploaded as a PDF when placing the order. The cover is then printed by BachelorPrint exactly as it appears in the PDF. Therefore, you must be 100 % sure of the placement of the text and images!

Impressions of softcover with different cover designs

We have provided a few examples of softcover binding using our design template for leather binding so you can see the individual design possibilities when using white print on a black cover. Of course your customised design will look different, but take a moment and look at the examples to get an impression of what your cover might look like.
