Realising the pressure PhD students face, we offer a fast service of 5 to 6 days between the receipt and finalisation of your PhD thesis.

You can calculate your own (non-binding) invoice and – if wanted – save it in your account. 

Normally if we receive the files on Monday or Tuesday (around noon at the latest), the books can be picked-up the next Monday (in the late afternoon) at our office (34 Boulevard de l’Empereur, 5 minutes away from Brussels Central), or for a small extra fee, they can be delivered that same day.
