The Saddle Stitch
Finishing touches say a lot about you
The machine earned the name saddle stitch, because it sits over the paper like a saddle and drops in the staples. With saddle stitching, the number of pages must be divisible by four. The process begins with a large sheet printed with four of the booklet pages. The sheet folds down to become part of a magazine or booklet. The saddle stitcher automatically trims the document, so the publication comes off the machine finished.
