Binding Terms:


Saddle Stitching
Many magazines are bound using saddle stitching with two staples along the spine. Saddle stitching is an economical binding method that allows pages to lie flat for reading. Because the pages are folded in half to create the spine, saddle stitched booklet documents must have a page count that is divisible by 4.

Tape Binding
With tape binding, sheets of paper are stacked tightly and then bound across the left (or sometimes top) edge by a piece of adhesive cloth tape. The binding tape may then be embossed with lettering. Tape bound books lie flat.

Plastic Comb Binding
Plastic comb binding uses a semi-rigid “comb” with teeth that fit through rectangular holes. This binding allows pages to lie flat on a hard surface for reading. The combs come in different sizes for different page counts.

Wire-O Binding
Wire-O™ binding, also called wire binding and Double-O binding, is typically used for binding books, booklets, calendars, spirals, day planners etc. Some binding machines punch three holes per inch (2.5 cm), and others punch two holes per inch. These are called pitch ratios and are referred to as either a 2:1 Pitch or a 3:1 Pitch. After the pages have been hole-punched in the Wire-O™ binding machine, they are removed and a flexible C-shaped wire spine is placed into the device.
