2. Which paper is best for thesis printing?
The best type of paper for your thesis depends on your personal needs. Our thickest 100 g/m2 and 120 g/m2 paper provides a sturdy feel that ensures no bleed-through on the pages. On the other hand, the 80 g/m2 and 90 g/m2 paper options give a lighter and more compact design to your thesis. The most common choice for doctoral thesis printing include the 120 g/m² and 100 g/m2 ones, whereas the other two are ideal for the printing of the other types of degree theses. Choosing the right type of paper also depends on whether your thesis will be printed one-sided or double-sided. The thicker the paper the more amount of ink a double-sided page will be able to handle. One-sided printing is ideally to be done on more transparent pages such as the ones of 80 g/m² or 90 g/m².
