Wire Stitched / Saddle Stitched
A printed document is saddle stitched by stapling it's sheets at the fold of the spine over a mechanical ‘saddle’. This process is best for booklets upto 48 pages. If you have more pages than 48 then the thickness will cause it to ‘bounce’ open when laid flat rather than staying closed.
Perfect binding is the process of binding sheets of a document by aligning the edges at the spine and bonding them with glue to an external cover to give a square finish. If the spine is less than 3mm we would advise you to go for wire stitching.
Each sheet in your wire stitched booklet forms 4 pages when it’s bound. Therefore when designing your booklet, remember to make sure that the total number of pages is a multiple of 4.
Because of the way we layout pages on the press, the most cost effective page quantities are multiples of 8 and 16 so 8/16/24/32/48.
Always supply files with 3mm bleed on each edge, this is even more important for booklets because of the ‘drift’ that occurs when binding
- we don’t want you to lose any information.

Booklet printing offers a huge number of variables and as a result it would be impossible to quote for every eventuality, so please email us with your spec taking into account the following factors and we will get a quote back to you.
• Finished Size
• Total Pages (see 'Helpful Tips' above)
• Cover Stock
• Inside Stock
• Binding Method (see Binding Options left)

• Matt Lamination is strongly recommended on covers printed onto 200gsm or more to prevent cracking on the fold.
• There are also a range of premium cover options we can add including Spot UV Varnishing, Silver and Gold foiling and Embossing however these add a significant amount to the total cost of your booklet.
