Individual cover design for softcover

Softcover requires that the student provides a customized design. It should be noted that the customized cover design must be uploaded as a PDF when placing the order. The cover is then printed by BachelorPrint exactly as it appears in the PDF. Therefore, you must be 100 % sure of the placement of the text and images!

FAQs for the softcover

There are four steps to producing a softcover. First, the customized cover design in the desired format (standard A4 format) is required from the customer. In the second step, the softcover is measured and adjusted according to the number of pages. Then, the cover gets printed according to the customers design.

In the third step, the printed pages are put into the cover and bound together using a special pressing method. In the final step, the edges are cut to give the work a clean, finished look.

With softcover binding, there are no particular color variants; therefore, it is always displayed as ‘Customized’. The standard softcover color is white. This is because the printable paper cover is white.

However, this cover can be completely customized. All colors, shapes, photos, and logos can be put on the softcover.

Softcover is perfect for a custom-designed cover of a piece of work having a medium to high page count. Softcover has a range of applications, from a short academic work to a Master’s thesis.

We recommend softcover for the following types of work:







The price of the binding depends entirely on your individual configurations, such as the number of pages or the additional gadgets. You can get the softcover itself from $ 17.90.

In addition to standard A4 format, soft binding offers flexible format sizes that can be cut on demand, up to A3. Depending on the paper grade, up to 150 pages can be integrated into the soft binding.

Double-sided printing is therefore possible for up to 300 pages. If using thicker grade 120 g/m² paper, the document bound in softcover binding can be up to 135 pages in length.
