Saddle Stiching

Book Binding - Service

Saddle Stitching

Saddle stitching or staple binding is always popular. It is ideal for products such as note books, booklets, catalogues,  programs, pamphlets, comic books, magazines, small brochures and manuals.

What is Saddle Stitching?

Saddle stitching involves inserting staples into the spine of a book as a form of binding the leaves together. The staples pass through the folded crease from the outside and are clinched between the center most pages.  Two staples are commonly used but larger books can be made more robust and secure by using more staples along the spine.

Saddle stitch binding may seem like a strange name for a book binding process that uses no thread. However in the printing industry stapling is commonly called stitching. Also the collated pages are draped over a saddle-like apparatus during the stapling or stitching process. Hence the name saddle stitching.

When to Use Saddle Stitching

Saddle stitch binding offers a quick and cost effective way of producing small books or magazines. The finished book lies almost flat when opened which is  particularly helpful if you have art work that spans two adjacent pages.
