The ease of Word

1. Interior layout

We believe sustainable design and printing should become the new standard. That is why we do everything in our power to make this possible. GreenThesis offers you a free Word template for your thesis layout, when you let us design your cover. With this template, you can easily create a sleek and minimalist layout yourself without spending capital. If you still need help, we can provide it at a reasonable rate.

Indesign TEmplate

2. Effortless Cover 

We are happy to help you design a sustainable and/or vegan cover for your thesis. All our designs are made with the environment in mind. From a hand-painted design to a photo collage with digitally painted details, everything is possible. Feel free to contact us to discuss the possibilities.

If you would like to make the cover file yourself, you can do so using the free PhD thesis cover template for Indesign. You then only have to change the spine thickness based on the number of pages in your thesis.

Save a tree, read it digitally

3. QR-Postcards

As a PhD student, you probably have a dozen or more PhD theses from former colleagues on your bookshelves that you’ve never read. As an eco-conscious company, we’d like to save all this needless paper and material. That’s why we also print QR postcards that can double as an invitation. People can simply scan the QR link and end up at your personal webpage on the GreenThesis site. Here, they will find a digital version of your thesis and all other necessary information regarding your defence. To design your QR-postcard yourself, simply use this free QR-postcard Indesign template. Of course, if you don’t have the time or an Indesign license, we’d be happy to help you with the design.
