Bound brochures and booklets are valuable and highly flexible pieces of marketing. If you’re looking for a book or document of between eight and 700 printed pages you’ll need a bound brochure. The type of binding you choose will usually depend on both the size and purpose of your publication.
What are the three main types of binding for brochures?
- Saddle stitched booklets
- Wiro bound documents
- Perfect bound books
Saddle stitched booklets
Saddle stitched booklets are bound together with stitches or staples that run along the spine. Saddle stitching is a very cost-effective and straightforward technique that’s ideal for brochures, reports, magazines, menus, information guides and company booklets. Saddle stitching is used for publications of up to 48 pages and if your document is 24 or more pages the spine can be squared off so your booklet won’t spring open.
Wiro bound documents
Wiro bound documents consist of single leaves that are stacked and hole punched along the rear edge, then bound together with a strong metal wire that’s fed through the holes. A great advantage of this method is that the document can fold completely back around and will lie completely flat when open. This makes it perfect for presentation documents, recipe books, reports, reference books and manuals of up to 180 leaves (360 printed pages).
Perfect bound books
Perfect binding is used for publications of up to 700 pages. The pages are glued together along the spine with a strong, flexible PUR adhesive before the cover is glued on. The method is cost-effective even for small quantities so you’ll see perfect binding used for reports, magazines and catalogues as well as for hardback reference books and even novels. Another advantage of perfect bound books is that they are perfectly squared off and are printed on the spine too, so they’re perfect for stacking or shelving.
