Saddle Stitching


The most popular binding for small booklets and books with less than 80 pages. A very economical type of binding suited to books with a short lifespan.

 

Saddle stitching is a great book binding option for menus, pamphlets, or short books and magazines. Quick and inexpensive, it is as simple as 2 staples, a fold and a trim. However, it takes an experienced book binding company like bookprinting.co.nz to pay attention to details in your digital printing file... like “creep”. “Creep” is the tendency of the middle pages in a saddle stitched book to have their edges protrude from the folded book more and more and more as they approach the center of the bound book. When these pages are trimmed to have a uniform edge, sometimes the middle pages have information trimmed off. bookprinting.co.nz manages this with special book binding anti-creep software that gently nudges the print away from the cutting edge as it approaches the middle of the book.
