Can't decide which binding technique to choose for your book project? Whether it is catalog, magazine, or multi-page booklets, you have two primary options ---- saddle stitch binding or perfect bound. Both binding methods will provide you with durable and stylish books.

Not let's tackle the difference between the perfect bound and saddle stitch binding:

Perfect Bound

If you opt for soft covers for your books, the perfect bound is the most preferred option. This method makes use of a special adhesive to fasten the pages to the spine. Since the cover page is used to make the spine where the pages are attached, there is no seam in the middle of the cover page and the spine. This results in a tidier, more pleasing front edge. They offer a more durable and perfectly-bound book. Spines may be printed and they allow you to apply varieties of color options and finishes to make your book more appealing.

Saddle Stitch

On the other hand, saddle stitch is the best option if you are working with brochures, leaflets and magazines with less than a hundred page. This binding method staples full sheets of paper jointly in the middle. The cover and the pages are bent in half alongside the staple line. This method does not require a special glue and they can be instantly produced making it an economical option.
