Saddle Stitching and Side Stitching Services

Saddle Stitching is a popular book binding method in which folded sheets(sigs) are gathered together one inside the other and then stapled through the fold line with wire staples. The staples pass through the folded crease from the outside and are clinched between the centermost pages.

Side stitch Similar to saddle stitch, but the wire is stapled into the front cover instead of along the spine. The drawbacks of side stitching as opposed to saddle stitch is that the pages don’t open flat, and there is margin loss along the binding edge of the pages.
