Saddle Stitch Binding
Saddle Stitch Binding is a process in which the signatures (sheets with several pages printed on them) are stapled through the spine. Loose sheets of paper are first folded and inserted within each other, and the fold becomes the spine of the product where it will be bound. The product is then stapled through the spine, holding the sheets of paper in place. Saddle stitch binding is used for booklets and newsletters that do not have a high number of pages. We offer saddle stitch binding for booklets/catalogs up to 96 pages (including cover) as well as calendars.
Perfect Binding is used on paperback books, booklets/catalogs, magazines, and inexpensive products such as manuals and workbooks. The cover is glued to the signatures (large sheets printed with a multiple of four pages, which are then folded to make a book) at the spine. A type of flexible adhesive or hot glue is used, and the sides of the papers that are attached to the spine are rough-cut so that they will absorb the glue and stick to the spine. The glue attaches the signatures to the cover of the product, holding the individual pieces in place. The remaining 3 unbound sides of the sheets of paper are face trimmed so that any folds will be removed and the individual pieces of papers separated. Perfect binding can be used for thicker publications, since it can hold more pages than saddle stitch binding. We offer perfect binding for booklets/catalogs from 48-96 pages (including cover).
