We have the perfect solution for printing your annual reports, magazines, brochures and other booklets – saddle stitched books.
Saddle stitched means binding pages together using staples (known as stitches) along the spine. This is a straightforward technique for documents up to 64 printed pages, giving you a professional finish with sharp, vibrant colour at a low price. We also square off the spine for an even better finish on books with more than 40 printed pages, to stop booklets from “springing open”.
All saddle-stitched books must be created in multiples of 4 pages, counting each page as you would in a normal page numbered book. Thus, a single page folded in half becomes a 4-page “book” and so on.
We have a great range of high-quality papers for you to choose from, including a broad selection of luxury papers. Choose heavier stock for the cover, with a choice of matt or gloss lamination for added strength. Choose a lighter stock for inner text pages (and for more than 28 pages, 130gsm or lighter to stop your document springing open).
Use our easy online ordering process to choose the size and finish you need from A4 portrait, 1/3 A4 portrait, A5 portrait or landscape, or 210 x 210mm square. Then choose from single or double-sided lamination in gloss or matt finish for your cover, or opt for no lamination.
