Author’s tip

Warning: The times mentioned are purely based on production time, but not on the waiting time in the queue before production! At submission times in particular, the rush on print shops or copy shops is extremely high!

More time and personell resources are needed, in particular with leather binding with embossing, and this can lead to unpleasant delays. It is therefore recommended that you place your order online and avoid stressful waiting times in the copy shop.

Print time at BachelorPrint

The print time is consistent with the previously mentioned information, but it must be factored into the production time especially at times of submission of academic work in order to coordinate and handle the large volume. A longer print time is necessary in particular for leather binding and we therefore recommend that you provide us with your PDF print file in advance via email or when ordering in our 24 hour online shop.

If you’d like to hold your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis or dissertation finished and bound in leather binding the day after ordering, then submit your order in the morning before 9:00 (Mon-Fri) and get your bound copy the next working day!
