Thermal binding and its optimal use
Thermal binding is the classic among students for binding academic work. It is used for various types of work, mostly shorter academic works such as papers, assignments, or even theses. Thermal binding is available at a low price with a transparent front film and in seven attractive colours.
We offer thermal binding in seven colours. Thanks to the modern adhesive cover with attached front film, the colour of the thermal binding is already on the front page and completes the chic look of the thermal binding.
The following colours are available for thermal binding:
- Royal blue
- Bordeaux red
- Dark green
- Sunshine yellow
BachelorPrint produces the most modern type of thermal binding. In the first step, the thermal binding is put into the binding machine.
In the second step, the loose paper stack is put into the thermal binding and tightened.
In the third step, a layer of glue is put on to the firm, taut back of the paper stack and merged together with the thermal binding.
Unfortunately, with thermal binding, embossing and the addition of corners and a ribbon as finishing touches are not possible. These refining details can only be applied to leather binding.
Yet, thanks to transparent front film, you have the possibility of aesthetically improving your thermal binding by adding a nicely designed title page to your work.
Advantages and disadvantages of thermal binding
|Advantages of thermal binding||Disadvantages of thermal binding|
|Affordable price||Relatively unprotected from external factors|
|Short production time||Easily creased or dogeared|

|Corners and ribbon not an option|
Book thickness of thermal binding
The adhesive cover for thermal binding is only available in one size. The thermal binding is cut to the number of pages and thus the thickness of the work. The maximum number of pages varies according to the chosen page weight.
For double sided printing, we recommend 120 g/m² paper as the back-side of the page is less visible through the page.
Therefore, if you select a paper grade of 100 g/m², you will be able to use spiral binding for a paper that has a page count of up to 150 pages, whereas if you use a paper grade of 120 g/m², you will be able to use spiral binding for a paper with a page count of up to 135 pages.
|Thermal binding with 100 g/m²||Thermal binding with 120 g/m²|
|20-150 pages||20-135 pages|
