Saddle Stitch

Saddle stitching is a method of binding one or more printed sections together, with or without a cover, by means of wire staples (stitches) through the spine and centerfold.

Perfect Bound

Perfect binding is a method for binding printed sheets to a thick, flexible spine, suitable for bindery that is too thick to saddle stitch.

Spiral Bound

Spiral binding attaches loose sheets by means of a plastic or metal coil being passed through punched holes.
