Thermal Binding Colours

Thermal binding is offered in seven different colours. Through the modern adhesive cover with attached front film, the colour of the thermal binding is already on the front page and completes the classic look of the thermal binding.

The following colours are available for thermal binding:

  • Dark green
  • Black
  • Royal blue
  • Bordeaux red
  • Grey
  • White
  • Sunshine yellow


BachelorPrint produces the most modern type of thermal binding. For 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. And then in the third step, a layer of glue is put onto the firm, taut back of the paper stack and merged together with the thermal binding. Once an order has been put through the online print shop, this process can be completed within 24-72 hours.

Thermal binding is suitable for all types of work. From academic work with a low page count, to extensive and important theses. Head over to the online print shop to see how your acadmeic work would look with the thermal binding.

We recommend thermal binding for the following types of work:

  • Essay
  • Assignment
  • Paper
  • Thesis
  • Dissertation

The thermal binding itself costs £ 9.90. However, the total price depends on the page size and whether you want additional gadgets in your binding. Basically, thermal binding is an inexpensive variant for binding documents and study papers.

The adhesive cover for thermal binding is only available in one size. The thermal binding is cut to the number of pages and the thickness of the work. The maximum number of pages varies according to the chosen page weight.

For double sided printing, we recommend the 120 g/m² paper as that would make the back side of the page less visible through the page. Follow the link to read about the paper for thesis printing and binding.

Therefore, if you select a paper grade of 100 g/m², you will be able to use thermal 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 thermal binding for a paper with a page count of up to 135 pages.
