How long does it take?

Printing your thesis takes, including sending a hardcopy proof as a real, bounded, book, 10-12 working days. Printing your thesis is a step by step process. Below you can see which steps usually have to be taken to print your thesis. Please take into account that sending corrected PDF files, after you have checked the first proof, will take an extra 2 working days.

If you are in a hurry, our express service is the perfect solution. We then will deliver your thesis within 4 working days after approval of the printproof instead of the standard 7 working days. Please notice that we have to discuss this in front. Click here for more information about this frequently used option.

If you want Ipskamp Printing to take care of the lay-out of your thesis as well, please take another extra 3 weeks extra into account.
