Personal attention.

A dissertation is tailor-made. Since 1993, we have been specialised in printing theses. Experience has thought us that personal attention and a smooth collaboration make the difference. In this important period we are the experienced partner for a suitable end product.

Quality that you experience. We work with thicker papers as standard and print with high-quality toner. This ensures a quality product. And you notice this.

Writing a thesis is a flexible process. We are organized for this. Therefore, after requesting an offer, do not worry about all specifications. Changes are always possible.

Thesis printing?

1. Collaboration

If you decide to start the collaboration, we will send you all additional information and we will plan and start the project. We will keep you informed at every step so that you know exactly where you stand.

2. Submitting files

You receive instructions on how to create files, and you will receive the addresses you should send the files to. We will check these files for a number of standard aspects. We will give you some feedback for improvement if necessary. If the files are correct, we will send you a paper proof to review. A digital proof by e-mail is also possible and is normally standard in the case of urgent orders.

3. Checking Proof Print

You receive the proof to check it for content and quality. You will also receive an information card with some explanation about the proof. You can make the necessary adjustments and send us the final documents.

4. Production and delivery

You receive a production confirmation in which you can check the order details. After your approval, we will start the production. After the production, the delivery takes place with an overnight shipment, delivered to the address agreed on, at normal business hours.

The costs for thesis printing depend on your wishes such as print run, number of pages, extra services etc. If you request an offer from us, we will contact you to discuss the costs based on these wishes.

If you are making the thesis yourself, we need the files as a PDF. This is explained in our manual. Software and instructions are also available on our customer service page.

If you are interested in a layout, there are different specifications. Look at our layout page for the conditions and options.

Of course, you can. We reduce the PDF you submit to 81%, the thesis size of 17 x 24cm. Further details are provided in our manual.

With your order you will receive login details to our portal, where you can submit the files.

We also have our own WeTransfer channel you can use for sending documents > Wetransfer

You certainly can. On our layout page, you can view our packages.

We have various types of paper for the inside pages and cardboard for the cover. There are also various applications for embellishing the cover. Since the possibilities we offer are many, we have not shown all options in the offer request. If you want to be informed of all options, please contact us without obligations.

With the offer request you can also apply for our manual. Our standard paper types are included as examples. Some applications have been used on the cover of this manual.

We have a handy calculation tool for this on our customer service page > calculate spine width

During the process, you will receive a proof of the thesis. It comes as a paper proof as standard, which you can check for quality and content. In the event of urgent delivery or if you do not have the possibility of receiving a paper proof, we will send you a digital proof in PDF by e-mail. This aspect will be discussed and agreed when your order is planned.

The idea of the proof is that you can check it and make any changes necessary. The time you need for doing this properly is taken into account in the planning. After you have checked the proof, we look forward to receiving your approval for the final files.

After production, we pack the theses in handy boxes. These boxes are sent by an overnight courier. This courier collects the theses one working day before the delivery date agreed on. On the next day, he will deliver the theses between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The shipment is normally delivered to the University. This is more practical, as someone needs to be present during office hours.

If you want to register the thesis, an ISBN will be required. With this number, your thesis will be listed in a database that is recognised world-wide.

Please state this wish when you request an offer for having your thesis printed. We will need some information from you in order to be able to submit the application. The costs for this ISBN application are €25, exclusive of 9% VAT.

If two or more people have their thesis printed by us, they will be eligible for a group discount. The discount percentage depends on the number of people in the group. Please contact us if you need any further information.
