Saddle stitching refers to bind both printed pages and book cover together by saddle stitching machine with two iron wires. Saddle stitching is not suitable for thick books. And before binding, all printed pages must be set together with book cover.

2. Wire side-stitching

Wire side-stitching is to put book block together by wire stapling machine with iron wire. The production efficiency of wire side-stitching is high. But the iron wire is easy to rust in damp air, which not only brings bad effect of the beauty of books, but also causes the breakage and falling of pages. Such binding method is suitable for books with less than 100 pages.
