Thesis Printing Market report

On the 10th of December 2009 we hosted a thesis printing market which turned out to be highly appreciated by PhDs since we welcomed over 60 PhDs that afternoon. Six different companies from all over the country presented their options and offers, since nowadays many arrangements regarding your thesis can easily be made via the internet as well. Furthermore PhDs explicitly mentioned that we would appreciate an overview of price estimates depending on the number of pages, color use and type of thesis you prefer. Below you will find a short overview of the companies that attended with links to their web pages and sometimes additional information about the cost of printing your thesis at this specific company. Feel free to contact them with questions. More information is also available on our website (Information, Tips and Tricks, Printing Companies).
