Saddle Stitch Binding Service for Professional Book & Handouts

Saddle-stitch binding is created by folding printed pages in half and uses a stapled spine to produce a slim book that’s easily portable, very economical and professional looking. It's the ideal printing method for handouts, as the finished product is easy to stack and transport.

Cover options

Saddle stitched books have a soft cover, available in 10-point and 12-point thickness. All saddle stitched books can be printed with custom book covers, using enhancements like our Diamond 3D foil, texture or clear, spot gloss options.

Size specifications

Saddle stitched books must be 36 pages or less. In order to saddle-stitch your book, it must be at least 7 inches tall; it cannot be wider than 9 inches.

Other binding options

48 Hour Books offers options for book binding. We also have perfect bound (softcover), case bound (hardcover), and spiral bound (plastic coil bound) options.

Check out this saddle stitched book! It features our 10pt C1S book cover with High Gloss Laminate. The interior paper stock is 80# Bright White Offset.
