Studio Proefschrift offers three types of books / covers: paperbacks (softcover), hardcovers (hardbound) and integrally bound. A paperback is usually used to print theses because it has a faster process than a hardcover to produce and it is less expensive. Most paperbacks are printed on cardboard, somewhere between 240 and 260 grams of paper. At Studio Thesis, we use 250 grams of Ensocoat wood-free sulphate board.
Printing your dissertation in a special hardcover edition is a wonderful reminder of one of the most important achievements in your life. Keep in mind that a hardcover has an additional price and that it takes 3 more days to process compared to a paperback. Also the cover for a hardcover has different dimensions as for a paperback. If you are interested in a hardcover edition of your dissertation, please contact one of our staff of Studio Thesis.
