Saddle Stitched Binding

Saddle stitched binding is a method of binding in which the sections of a publication are inserted inside each other and secured through the middle fold with wire staples. Saddle stitched booklets are printed up to 128 pages, in sections of 4 pages (so the number of pages in your document must be divisible by 4, or we can add blank pages to reach the correct page count). Saddle stitch binding is the perfect choice for creating classic looking printed booklets.

What does Saddle Stitch mean?

Saddle stitching is booklet or book binding method in which folded sheets of paper are secured together using metal staples. The sheets are folded, gathered together in the appropriate order and then stapled through the fold line with metal wire staples. The staples are clamped in the centre pages of the document to secure the binding. Depending on the number of pages in the document, the printed outer pages can actually be slightly wider than the pages near the centre, to prevent the centre pages protruding from the document when folded.

What can I use Saddle Stitched Binding documents for?

  • A saddle stitched book is perfect for use as a catalogue, as it's lightweight and costs less than a paperback book. It works as a booklet or company brochure and it could also be used as a training manual on a lighter weight paper such as 80 or 120gsm.

    We recommend choosing 160 - 300gsm for an order of service, anothology or collection of short stories.

    Magazines and zines are perfect saddle stitched, and they would make a good shorter memoir or autobiography.

    For a first draft that can be scribbled on they would be good on 120gsm plain paper. You could print a newsletter on this as well as a programme of events.

    These can also be used as workbooks, activity books and handouts.

  • Cover and contents can be printed in either colour or black and white
  • Total number of pages must be a multiple of four (blank pages can be inserted into the front or back as necessary)
