WHAT IS SADDLE STITCHING?
Saddle Stitching is a common binding process that utilizes strategically placed staples (or stitches) to hold your printing project together. Revered for its price and quality saddle stitching is a great way to bind your next printing project.
SADDLE STITCHING PROCESS
The most important thing in the saddle stitching process is file prep. Your project will need the correct number of pages, correct page number positioning (if applicable), bleeds (if applicable) and more. If you need help setting up your file we have specialists on hand to assist you. Once your file is sorted out it’s pretty straight forward from there.
The number of pages in a saddle-stitched booklet must be divisible by 4. Meaning, you cannot have a 19-page book, but you can have a 20, 24, 28, 32… so on and so forth, not to exceed 60 pages. If your booklet exceeds 60 pages please contact us for a consultation. See our submission guidelines or contact us for help!
Once we’ve received your artwork and everything checks out it’s on to the printing. We can print both Digital and Offset saddle-stitched books. Whichever works best for your project!
Once the book has been printed it’s time to bind! We take all of the pages and bind them together in our saddle stitching machine and when we’re finished you have a great looking saddle-stitched booklet!
