Saddle Stitching

A very simple and cost effective binding solution is Saddle Stitching. This method of binding has no minimum pagination and is the most cost effective. Many light weight publications, mailers and “self covers” are bound this way however for larger paginations a saddle stitch bind will not be suitable.

The other in house binding methods we use at Warners Midlands are Perfect binding and PUR Binding. These other methods can be explained in the video below.


Here is a list of key points about Saddle Stitching
  • No spine
  • Cost effective
  • Only suitable for smaller paginations
  • Can be Self Covers
  • Has a number of metal “Stitches” in the spine to hold the pages together
  • Not a particularly strong bind
  • Very good for “pull out sections” such as posters.
