Saddle Stitching

Saddle Stitch Binding

Saddle Stitching is one of the most common forms of bindery. It is a type of wire binding where wire staples are driven through the fold in the center of the booklets. Saddle Stitching is different from other bindings in that it has the pages folded and then inserted into each other, while other binding methods have the individual pages placed on top of each other. Since the pages are folded at the spine in saddle stitching, the books will have to have pages in multiples of four.
