Have your booklets saddle stitched for easy reading. Types of books that do not contain many pages such as magazines, catalogues, brochures and newsletters are saddle stitched. This involves placing the staples down the spine of the book to bind it resulting in a document that looks professional. The book can lie flat for ease of reading because the stapling is done at the middle.  With the right stock selection, booklets can be produced to a very high standard and is often used in the fashion industry to showcase the latest season’s styles (called a Look Book).

The method is suitable for books with heavier covers as well as with covers like the interior pages papers – self-covers. However, it should be noted that there is a particular thickness when the book becomes too bulky that it does not fold properly. This depends on how thick the paper that has been used is, with the limit usually being around 60 pages. At this point, it is advisable not to use saddle stitching for binding. The pages of the book must be divisible by four for the method to be applicable and it is therefore restrictive. The books to be stitched can be of different sizes whether as small as a pocket guide or as large as a magazine.
