A great method of bookbinding in which the sections of a publication are inserted inside each other and secured through the middle fold with thread, or wire staples.
Saddle stitching is a book binding method, where the pages are gathered together, folded to form a booklet and wire-stapled in the folded line. Generally, two staples are used for each book, however, larger books may require more staples.
The saddle stitch booklet printing process is quite common and fairly inexpensive; it is more cost-effective in comparison to perfect binding and coil binding, when large volumes of books are being produced. The process takes place after the inside pages and cover have been printed, collated and folded lightly, to mark the line for saddle stitching. Once the book is saddle-stitched, it is then trimmed and folded tighter together.
