Thermal binding is an affordable binding for multiple copies for dissertation printing

Thermal binding is an option when larger quantities of the dissertation are required. Be it for applications or as copies for applications, friends, or your supervisor.

Spiral binding is the most affordable binding for dissertation printing

As a rule, spiral binding or wire binding is really only for shorter or less significant works, such as essays, assignments or papers. For a dissertation, spiral binding is only suitable in certain cases as it cannot compete aesthetically with leather binding or thermal binding. Yet, spiral binding is sometimes used for dissertation printing if extra backup copies, or copies for friends and relatives are being produced.

The most important factor for most students when it comes to dissertation printing is the price. The price includes factors such as: type of binding and number of pages when printing and binding your PhD thesis. You can calculate the exact price for your dissertation printing beforehand here: Print Shop

Do you want to print your dissertation for example with 20 pages and bind it with the premium leather binding with additional embossing, the calculated price is $64,80. This is 45% less compared to other market prices! Plus: with BachelorPrint, your order is delivered for free!

At BachelorPrint, we use 100 g/m² premium-paper as standard for printing and set the same price for color – and black/white printing.

To have your dissertation printed and bound, you can either go to a copy shop or simply order your dissertation binding online. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

One advantage of the print shop is that you can conveniently place your order from home. You configure your binding and then look at the end product using our 3D live preview. Then simply order and get your order delivered the next day for free.

We also recommend high-quality binding for important work, such as the dissertation. For this reason, the leather binding is our top recommendation! It not only looks noble and high quality, but also gives your examiner a perfect first impression.

For work such as dissertations, either the 80 g/m² paper or the 100 g/m² paper is often used. At BachelorPrint we use the 100 g/m² paper as our standard, as it is not only more robust, but also feels better when you browse through the thesis. However, if you want to print and bind your dissertation on both sides, we recommend that you even use the 120 g/m² paper to ensure that the text does not show through.

If you want to know more about the right paper for your dissertation, follow this link to our blog post: Which paper for dissertation printing & binding?
