Saddle stitch is a term coined in an earlier era where booklets were placed on a triangular “saddle” before stitching. It can also mean literal stitching with thread, which is one of the oldest methods of binding books.
Conventionally, however, it means binding books along the spine with two staples. This is a quick, efficient, and economical means of binding booklets.
Saddle stitched booklets are ideal for gallery exhibits, event journals, annual reports, and catalogs. At Remco Press we have a variety of cover and text papers, and we are always looking to push the boundaries of what is expected from a typical saddle stitched booklet. Our favorite projects are for art exhibit and zine publishers, where we mix and match papers to create eye-popping designs and unexpected textures.
If you need to produce an event journal, gallery program, product catalog, or your very own zine, get in touch with us to see if a saddle stitched booklet is the right fit for your event.
