Booklet Printing

Saddle stitch books
Books are scored and folded, then two staples are added. You can order books up to 40 pages (10 sheets) including the cover. Books may be printed with all paper the same thickness, or you may choose a heavier paper for the cover. This is the most common stitched book option.

Perfect binding vs Saddle Stitching

Saddle stitching refers to the method of binding where the pages are folded and stapled along the crease to create a book. When setting up a booklet for saddle stitching you need your page count to be a multiple of 4 pages. This is similar to a magazine.

Perfect binding on the other hand doesn’t involve folding the pages. The inner pages are glued along the spine with the cover applied at the same time. When the adhesive dries (in seconds) the pages are secured firmly in place. This is similar to a paperback novel. 

The maximum you should saddle stitch is a a 40 page booklet. Anything above 40 pages is best suited for a perfect bound book.
