Wire Stitched / Saddle Stitched
A printed document is saddle stitched by stapling its 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. The number of pages needs to be a multiple of four to work as a wire stitched booklet.
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 (36 pages in total) then we would advise you to go for wire stitching.
Our ‘house’ papers are significantly more cost effective than branded sheets. If you are unsure which finish and weight of paper will work best with your artwork then drop us an email with your address and we’ll happily send out a sample pack.
If you are printing more than 700 copies then we will litho print your job and it is then good practise to ensure page quantities are multiples of 8 and 16 so 8/16/24/32/40 – makes it easier for us to print and cheaper for you!
Our file set up guides provide all the information you need to correctly set up artwork for print. This can take a while to work out at first but ultimately we’ll need you to supply us with hi res pdfs please saved as PDFx1a (choose this from the top drop down menu when you export to pdf) and then in the Marks and Bleeds menu tick crop marks and add ‘3mm’ into the four bleed boxes.
For extensive help on setting up your booklet file for print have a look at our Resource section.
Booklet printing offers a huge number of variables and as a result it would be impossible to quote for every eventuality. We price competitively because we want to get your work into print and then if its a success and you’re happy with the quality we hope you’ll come back for a second…third…..fourth order.
