The adhesive cover for thermal binding always has the same size. That means, no matter what page count you have, we always use the same size of cover and then cut it accordingly. This makes it possible to place a rather large number of pages into this binding.

A decisive factor for determining how many pages fit into the thermal binding is also the thickness of the paper. For double sided printing, we recommend 120 g/m² paper as the back-side of the page is less visible through the page. But, of course, less pages can fit into the bindin then. If you choose a paper grade of 100 g/m², more pages will fit into  tehrmal binding with an estimated amount of 150 pages, whereas if you use a paper grade of 120 g/m², you will be able to use thermal binding for a page count of up to 135 pages.
