What are the costs of a thesis?

The costs for creating a printed thesis are divided into two parts: design and printing. Personal Thesis will be personally responsible for the design of your manuscript, whilst printing is always outsourced to one of our printing partners. The price for printing can be obtained from your printer. In case you did not contact a printer yet we can give advice based on your preferences and needs.

Our most popular choice costs € 599,- (ex. VAT). This fixed price includes the design of the cover, the inside of your thesis and an invitation. Theorems are included in this price.

Group discount up to 15%!

If you outsource the design of your thesis together with colleagues, we can offer a discount up to 15%! Please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
