Saddle-stitched books are a great choice for catalogs, manuals, booklets, event programs, multi-page brochures, newsletters, periodicals, wall calendars, and mailers. Saddle-stitching joins the cover and interior pages using two wire staples placed through the folded spine. A simple method for professional looking results!
For saddle-stitched booklets the number of pages will always be a multiple of four. A single sheet of paper folded in half becomes a four page document (2 folded sheets equals 8 pages, etc). We also count the cover sheet as 4 pages. So a 16 page saddle-stitched book will consist of 3 interior sheets (12 pages) and the cover sheet (4 pages).
