Printing technique

Nowadays almost all theses are printed using digital print, either toner or inkjet. In the past, theses were printed with offset technology. Not anymore. The advantages of digital printing are clear:

  • Lower costs for runs of up to approximately 1000 copies
  • Ability to distribute full-color pages random throughout the book.
  • Shorter turnaround time.

Two different techniques of digital printing:

Inkjet is our standard printing technique and most used in general for theses and books. The vast majority of all our book productions are produced in this way. With inkjet printing really tiny drops of liquid ink are sprayed onto the paper and dried in a quick and controlled manner in the machine.

  • Fastest way of production
  • More economical than toner print
  • The most commonly used printing technique for theses and books in general.

In contrast to inkjet, toner does not work with ink but with a powder substance to print the images and text. This powder is applied to the paper using electricity and heat.

  • Toner print works a bit slower than inkjet.
  • Sometimes produces slightly better print quality for very high detail images (particularly on very glossy paper).
  • More expensive than inkjet.
