If you need an affordable and professional-looking book printing option, Saddle Stitch Book with Cover is a perfect solution for you.
Saddle Stitch Book with Cover is both a cost-effective and quick printing option for your booklets, catalogs, and other publications. The pages are printed on sheets in sets of 4, collated, folded, and stapled at the spine. This binding method uses thicker paper for the cover of the book compared to the inside pages. The wide paper choice for both cover and inside pages allows you to choose the perfect combination no matter the purpose of your booklet.
Saddle Stitch Bound Books with Cover are perfect for commercial and technical brochures, booklets, pamphlets, or sketchbooks. They are ideal for smaller page counts (8-64). Staple capability and the weight of the paper are the limiting factors in regards to the number of pages. The total number of pages has to be divisible by 4. During online product configuration, you will choose the number of pages not including the cover. They can be opened flat. Saddle Stitch Book with Cover is very versatile and can be printed in almost any book size.
Uncoated paper is a classic and timeless choice for printing materials that require a natural and tactile feel. Unlike glossy or silk paper, uncoated paper does not have an additional coating on top of the matte surface, allowing you to feel the paper fibers directly when touched. This creates a more personal connection with your printed materials, enhancing the ease of reading and writing.
Don't be fooled by its lack of sheen - uncoated paper can still feel incredibly high-end and luxurious, especially when used at heavier weights. With the right design and printing techniques, a matte effect can be created that many people prefer over glossy finishes. Uncoated paper is also ideal for writing on, making it perfect for booklet covers, brochures, or postcards that require filling out by hand.
It's important to keep in mind that bright colors and images may appear slightly muted on uncoated paper, so it's best suited for light coverage artwork.
For booklet covers, brochures, or postcards that require filling out by hand, the smooth finish of 100 lb. Uncoated Cover is a great option. However, it's important to note that bright colors and images may appear slightly muted on this paper, so it's best suited for artwork without too many bold colors.
Gloss Text paper will make your designs pop with its light-reflecting coating that brings out the boldness of bright colors and patterns. This paper is an excellent choice for projects with full-color photographs, attention-grabbing graphics, or vivid solids.
However, keep in mind that gloss text paper may not be the best option for text-heavy designs since the shiny surface can make it challenging to read small print. But if you're creating a promotional piece that needs to stand out, like a catalog or a multi-page brochure, gloss paper is the perfect choice.
For cover pages, the 100lb Gloss Cover stock is a top pick. Its glossy finish is ideal for booklets and catalogs, particularly for bold patterns and bright colors that demand attention.
Looking for a paper stock that strikes a balance between high-gloss and matte? Consider Silk Text paper! This type of paper features a subtle sheen that enhances colors without the intense glare of full gloss, and it has a luxurious feel that's noticeably soft and smooth to the touch.
Silk finish paper is highly versatile, making it an excellent choice for designs that feature a lot of text. It provides a great base for crisp, clear typography. Unlike glossy paper, you can write on silk finish paper, although not as easily as on uncoated paper.
For a sturdy feel with a silky matte finish for covers, opt for 100 lb. Silk Cover. It's perfect for promotional items like catalogs, booklets, and postcards.

The book cover's finishing options may be limited to the outside, but they can still make a significant impact on the book's appearance and durability. Lamination is a popular choice as it enhances the cover's resistance to tearing, water damage, and general wear and tear. This means no more creases, stains, or fading from sun exposure! A matte lamination offers a refined and sophisticated finish with a natural appearance, while a velvet finish offers a soft and flexible texture that lightens colors and reduces contrast.
If you want a more crisp and sharp appearance to text and images, a gloss lamination is the way to go. For an even more impressive effect, consider a gloss UV that delivers a high-gloss finish that makes high-contrast images and photographs stand out. If you prefer a more eco-friendly option, AQ coating is a water-based, glossy coating that provides additional protection and glossiness to the cover. It also allows for easy writing with a ballpoint pen.
