How should I format my thesis for printing?
One-sided: Side gaps inside (left) should be at least 2.5 to 3 cm. On the outside, they should not be less than 1 cm at the top and bottom.
Double-sided/two-sided: The side distances inside should be at least 2.5 to 3 cm. Outside, top and bottom they should not be less than 1 cm.
Borderless printing: For borderless printing, these distances also apply to everything that should be legible and visible. However, for this you should please set the bleed to 3 mm on each side.
Can I send you a word doc?
Please send us only a PDF. With Word files, the formatting would be adjusted to our Word settings and thus completely changed. The PDF, on the other hand, remains unchanged on our computers.
What kind of paper do you use?
We always print on high quality 100 g premium paper.
For an additional charge you can also choose 120 g premium paper.
Do you have a proper imprint?
Genuine deep embossing
Your text is manually embossed into the book cover in the old craft tradition - by pressure and heat, using brass letters. And not, as is often the case, by machine.
Can I see a preview of the embossing?
Of course! We will gladly send you a PDF with the preview of your front cover embossing.
I would like to emboss the cover and/or the spine. Is that still possible afterwards?
Embossing on the front cover afterwards is possible in principle up to a certain book thickness. However, this does not work on the spine. To do this, we would have to open the book and replace the spine.
Do you have any colorful embossing colors?
In addition to the classic colors like gold and silver, we offer another 20 great colorful embossing colors. There is something for every taste!
Can I choose different embossing colors?
If you would like to have something classic for the delivery, but a little more colorful for your personal books, simply indicate in the "What else I would like to say" field how many books are to be embossed in which color. This way, there are no limits to different combinations. However, you can also add the variants individually to the shopping cart.
If I want to have my thesis printed: Do I have to fill out the order form?
Yes, please! The order form asks for all the information we need to produce your thesis quickly and correctly at a glance.
If I have individual wishes: Do I have to fill out several order forms, or can I put everything in one?
Feel free to specify a variation and put any additional info in the "What else I'd like to say" message box. For example, "Please emboss only the spine of one book, and please emboss the front cover of the remaining books."
However, you can also add the variants individually to the shopping cart.
I found an error in my PDF, may I send a new one?
If we haven't printed yet, that's not a problem. Just rename the new PDF and send it to us. If we have already printed, we can exchange the pages in question for an extra charge if there are not too many. Otherwise we have to reprint.
Can I still make changes?
Changes are usually no problem. Just ask how far we are in the production and we will be happy to discuss the details with you!
I would like to have more/less books than ordered, is that possible?
If you want to order more books, although we have already started the production, it's no problem. If you want to have less books and we haven't started yet, it's no problem either!
I have discovered an error in my thesis. Is it possible to open the books again?
Thanks to our special binding system, we can reopen the books afterwards for an additional charge and replace individual pages or the entire print as needed.
Can I please reorder another book?
Of course! Just write us an email and send the PDF again. If we need any further information, we will contact you.
Do you also send out finished theses?
Yes, but in addition to the production time, there is also the time for mailing. With our express delivery service, you will receive your printed and bound thesis faster, usually the very next day.
Normal shipping: Here is normal shipping, usually the books are then within 2-5 days with you (usually after 2 days).
