Saddle Stitch Binding



Share |



Saddle stitching is the most economical binding available. Pick up a Time or Newsweek to see what this looks like. The pages are stapled together through the center of the spine of folded sheets. A variation on saddle stitching is side stitching. It is not a very popular method, but it is another means of joining pages of a printed piece together by stapling through the cover along the binding edge. Generally used for short-run materials. Cheap cost and easy production makes this binding the most popular binding method.
