SADDLE STITCH
Saddle stitching is where two staples are positioned down the spine of the folded pages like a magazine. We recommend saddle stitching for documents fewer than 64 pages. Pages should be set up in multiples or signatures of four (4, 8, 12, 16, etc.). Cover can be printed on a heavier stock than the internal pages.
A4, A5 and custom options are available.

PERFECT BINDING
The edge of the book is glued to the cover, just like a library book. We recommend this type of binding for larger books over 60 pages in length. Margins to accommodate the spine need to be allowed for in the design. We have a minimum print run of 50 books per order for perfect binding.
A4, A5 and custom options are available.

SPIRAL BINDING

High Tech Printing stock a wide range of plastic coils. Spine margins need to allow for the hole punching. Clear front cover and black card back are standard inclusions.
A4, A5 and custom options are available.

THERMAL BINDING
The edge of the book is glued to a solid black spine with clear plastic front and back covers. Thermal binding is great for a professional looking document that has a similar look to perfect binding but without the minimum order.
