Saddle stitch booklets are created by folding sheets of paper and stapling them along the fold line, giving the appearance of a saddle when opened. This method is especially useful for projects with a lower page count, ranging from 8 to 64 pages. The simplicity of the process, along with its ability to provide a flat, professional finish, makes saddle stitch binding an ideal choice for a diverse range of applications.
The versatility of saddle stitch booklets extends to their customisation options. From paper types and sizes to finishes and laminations, the level of customisation available allows businesses and creators to align their booklets with their branding and design preferences.
Budget-friendly, impressive and versatile, saddle stitch booklets are a must-have product anyone can use.
Our minimum order requirement for A4 and A5 portrait and landscape options is just 1 brochure, while the minimum order for all other options is 25 booklets, ensuring accessibility for projects of various scales.
For best results, we recommend using a lamination for covers with heavy ink coverage. Lamination acts as a protective layer, safeguarding the cover from any potential marking caused by ink transfer or friction during transit or storage. Choose from a range of cover laminations, including the durable and premium Soft Touch, or opt for the elegant finish of Matt lamination. See our blog for more information on lamination - Which lamination should I use for my print?
