What is Saddle Stitching?
- Saddle stitching means that the Fast Digital Booklet is bound by two staples though the spine. The sections of the Booklet are folded, then inserted (so that the outer pages sit over the top of the inner pages), then two staples are driven through the point at which the pages meet at the back of the Fast Digital Booklet, then the booklet is trimmed at the head, the foot and the fore edge to leave a neat finish to the sides of the Fast Digital Booklet.
