Approximately 95% of the covers we print are printed on 240 grams sulphate cardboard. Sulphate cardboard is a very suitable cardboard type for covers. We also have various other cover paper types. Please contact one of our offices should you be interested in a different paper type for the cover.
The most common paper types used for the inner pages are offered as standard. These types are directly available. Some paper samples are included at the back of the Guidebook. The same image has been printed on all the samples, allowing you to see how the paper affects the readability, colour, etc. The choice of the paper is mainly a matter of personal taste. The standard paper types all have the same price.
In addition to our standard product range we can provide any and all paper types available at the paper wholesaler. Contact one of our offices for an appointment to see the samples.
We provide a few tips to help you select the right type of paper.
Matte paper (uncoated) provides higher readability than glossy paper (coated). The reflection of the light can be disturbing when reading. Premium print is very suitable in this case.
The thickness of the paper weight is expressed in grams per m2. In general, 100 grams per m² is used to print a thesis. The 90 and 115 grams per m² paper thickness is, however, also appropriate.
Coated or uncoated
We basically distinguish two types of paper, uncoated paper, such as 90 grams woodfree offset paper and 90 grams Bio Top paper and coated paper such as 100 grams G-print paper. Coated paper makes colour images stand out a bit more. Uncoated paper is easier to read, because it reflects less light. Most theses are printed on 100 grams G-print paper.
