One of the most economical binding options, saddle stitching is a form of binding in which the pages are folded and stapled in the centre. Saddle stitching is used widely for booklets or catalogues up to about 60 pages (dependent on cover options, paper thickness and paper type).
A widely used soft cover binding method, a one-piece cover is glued and wrapped around the spine. The edges are then trimmed down to create a ‘perfect’ custom book. Perfect binding is suitable for thicker books, and is sure to impress with use a variety of paper weights, colors and finishes.
Cone & Wire Binding
Cone (Plastic Spine) or Wire (Metal) Binding is a flexible and cost-effective binding method for applications such as reports or instruction / course manuals. Ideal for booklets that need to open flat. Available with clear acetate cover & leather grain backing for durability.
The term ‘self-cover’ means cover of the booklet is the same as the paper used for the interior pages. The most economical option, best used in saddle-stitching or booklets that don’t require longevity.

While you can make your book virtually any size, consider your audience and effective design layout. The best size for your booklet will depend on the intended use and the amount of information and/or images you want to present within.
Standard A4 or A5 sized booklets and catalogues are most popular. Creating a booklet in a standard size will help keep costs more economical. We work with large sheets, and deviating from standard sizes can influence the amount of paper and materials used, potentially increasing the cost to you.
It is also important to keep in mind when considering the design for your custom booklets, portrait oriented booklets are much more affordable than landscape booklets. This is because landscape booklets tend to require larger sheet sized for production.
