Saddle-stitched Booklet printing
In the book reader community, a saddle-stitched book refers to a type of book binding method where two sheets. To some, saddle stitching may sound like an odd name for a book binding process. In reality, the name perfectly defines the type of binding process. For instance, it consists of stapling through paper sheets around the book. These sheets are draped by a saddling apparatus while the stitching process is being completed. One sheet remains inside the other and is stapled through staple wires. These go through the folded crease from outside and is clinched between the center pages. For a small or medium sized book, two staples are enough to hold the binding. For bigger books, more staples may be required along the spine to give it a durable binding. Companies like Metro Digital offer very high-quality saddle-stitch booklet printing services for customers.

Spiral Binding Book

The process includes insertion of the coil through holes across the cover and pages. These are specifically punched by a specialized machine that records overall dimension of the book. Benefits of spiral binding are that the reader can open pages from cover to cover (360 degrees). The benefits of the full opening are that the book can be folded from the back and still remains readable, adding comfort to the reader.

The hardcover is the exact opposite of paperback as it contains a hardcover usually made of cardboard covered in a fabric, a cloth or Rexene. Paperback and hardback covers offer greater durability to your book.

Perfect binding is mostly used for magazines and books that contain paperbacks. In perfect binding, different sections of folded pages are given trimmed spines. You can also use single pages for perfect binding. All sections are joined with glue or other adhesive to form a soft cover around the book.
