We created this FAQ page on thesis binding because we know that press time is important on the road to graduation and it’s okay to have lots of questions.

However, if you still have any doubts, do not hesitate to contact us.

The most frequently asked questions

  • Why is the binding of 13/16 sustainable?

We make all our products by hand in Turin, Italy, using recycled or FSC certified materials that come only from Italy and Europe. We are a small artisan workshop, attentive to waste and quality.

  • What is the shipping cost?

Shipping costs €5 throughout Italy, but if the order exceeds €60 it is free.

  • How long does it take for me to receive my degree thesis from the moment of the order?

We ship your thesis within 3 working days from the order but if you are particularly urgent, report it in the notes to the order and we will give you maximum priority.

  • What is the difference between the velvet spine and the canvas that wraps around the cover?

The velvet spine only covers the thickness of the thesis, the surrounding canvas can also be seen from the front, on the left side of the cover.

  • When ordering, do I have to indicate exactly which pages I want in black and white and which in colour?

No, we only ask you to enter the total number of black and white and color pages. We know this is a nuisance but we’ve found that if we let the system do it automatically, very often it detects color pages that can be printed in black. Furthermore, there are sections such as the bibliography, where urls appear in blue which can easily be printed in gray, without increasing costs.

  • Why is it important to send a PDF?

PDF (Portable Document Format) is the most reliable format for printing. It always remains the same regardless of the software, hardware or operating system.

  • How should I set the margins?

As you like! Our theses open perfectly flat so there is no need to leave a large internal margin to ensure maximum usability.

Just an inch from the page cut is enough for us.

  • What should I consider in the layout if I choose front and back printing?

We have prepared a short guide to create the correct PDF for printing your thesis.

But if you still have any doubts we are available for any advice and also to check the file. You can upload it here.

  • What does 120 gsm paper mean?

Paper weight is an important factor to consider. Photocopy paper usually weighs between 70 and 90 gsm.

120 g per square meter indicates a thicker and more valuable paper. Also remember that all our papers are FSC certified or recycled.

  • Will the cover be identical to the title page?

We use your file but we may slightly change the size of the faculty logo and smaller texts to have the highest quality engraving.

  • Can I ask for the wood or cardboard in a different colour?

We can bind theses with all recycled cardboard and notebook wood, but we have selected the colors on which the laser engraving is more readable.

  • Do I have to insert the first respect page in the file?

We add to all theses a black page at the beginning and at the end.
