Types of Brochure Binding

Types of Brochure Binding

Here at AB Print, we can offer a wide range of printing services to help you promote your business. One question we get asked a lot about is what kind of binding is right for your printed brochures, booklets and books?

There are many brochure binding methods for finishing your printed works, and each has both advantages and disadvantages. While we can’t tell you which binding process is right for your printed products, we can help by giving you more details to help you choose.


Saddle stitch

This method is similar to stapling, where groups of 4 creased pages are collated together and stitched using metal wire in the centre crease. This wire can be seen from the inside and the outside of the document. This form of binding can be used on as many as 100+ pages, depending on the thickness and weight of the paper

Side wire stitching

This technique is also known as stab stitching. The metal wire is stabbed through the edge of loose papers, from front to back. The wire is then folded back on itself and covered using binding tape.

Perfect binding

This method is done using grouped sections or loose pages which have a hot glue coating to the edge and set inside a separate wrap around cover. This method is the more expensive choice and requires a spine thickness of at least 3mm.

Wire-O binding

This common binding method is used for low-cost documents and may also be known as comb binding. A document made of loose pages with a loose front and back is punched along the edge and held together using either a wire or plastic comb. The combs are available in a wide range of colours and lengths.
