Saddle stitch books
Books are scored and folded, then two center staples are placed in the mid-point of the sheet. 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 and a text weight paper for the inside of the books. This is the most common stitched book.

Perfect binding vs Saddle Stitching

Saddle stitching refers to the method of binding where the pages are gathered together, folded and stapled along the crease, from the outside, 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 gathered together and 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. 

It all depends on the weight of paper you use, but the maximum you should really saddle stitch is a a 40 page booklet. Anything with a page count above 40 pages is best suited for a perfect bound book. Saddle stitching or perfect binding is the way to professionally present your brochure, catalogue, magazine, newsletter or book.
