Saddle-Stitched Booklets

An Ideal Way of Binding Small Booklets


Saddle-stitched binding is among the easiest and most common methods of booklet binding. It is a soft type of binding which uses staples on the seam or spine of a book or a booklet where it folds. It is ideal for binding smaller booklets that don't have plenty of pages, such as books, brochures, and catalogs which are under 100 pages.

Why is it called Saddle Stitching?

Saddle Stitching may sound like it came from an old western movie. To shed some light on this odd name let's start with separating the two terms; saddle and stitching. In print lingo, stitching means the book binding process where wire staples are placed through sheets of paper. For saddle, the term is basically coined from the look that the collated sheets have when draped over a saddle-like apparatus during the stitching process.
