A4 Saddle Stitched Binding. Full Colour. Sizes Up to A4 Portrait.
A Saddle Stitched book is one where the pages are printed side-by-side, then stapled together and folded in half. It's like a newspaper, with the addition of x2 staples down the spine (a.k.a "saddle") to stop the pages from falling out. It's cost effective, and durable long term, which makes it very popular / common. Be aware that there will always be a slight bow / bend in the book, and something called "creep" must be considered (see below for more info). Suitable for up to 52 pages including covers. Page count must be a multiple of 4.

Got a custom size other than A4 (210mm x 297mm) or A3 (297mm x 420mm)? Simply select the A-series size that your entire print will fit within, and we will trim to your crop marks. For example, a portfolio 200mm x 305mm would require you to select an A3 (297mm x 420mm) size portfolio. If you want a square book, 297mm x 297mm is as large as we can go, and this would require an A3 product.
Note: the wire will add some overall width to your portfolio (up to 20mm for thick books).
Have your book covers Digital Foiled with a metallic gold, silver or copper. You must read our Digital Foil setup page before ordering this option, as there are a few things to keep in mind. Not available on "Heavy Textured Matte - Bright White" paper stock.
