Most binderies can do 6pg foldout covers on Saddle Stitched books, but only a few (like us!) can also add foldouts from the top and/or bottom and/or face.

Saddle Stitching With Foldouts

These operations require die-cutting, oftentimes some very tricky folding and then Saddle Stitching. We can do all these processes in-house, using one of our 4 – 40” Bobst/Brausse die cutters, box gluers, buckle/plow folders and Mueller saddle stitchers.

FULL SERVICE PACKAGING

Full Service Packaging

Since when did trade binderies do Full Service Packaging for printers? This is a service we have recently introduced as the turnaround timing for some packaging jobs is getting tighter.

Full Service Packaging

We produced 40,000 of these containers out of 28” x 40” sheets. We inline box glued the containers, manually popped them open, snapped the bottom shut, manually inserted the 3 products, and then closed the top.

The advantage of offering Full Service Packaging to our customers is the fact that we greatly reduced the timeline to market by doing the die cutting, inline gluing / box forming and insertion packaging. This gives printers more influence over their customer because the more operations they control, the greater the probability of having repeat business!

SADDLE STITCHING – DELICATE COVERS

A common problem we see with Saddle Stitched books is when the chosen cover stock has a beautiful texture and finish. These stocks look beautiful . . . until they go through a Saddle Stitcher. The result is a scratched and scuffed book cover.

We have the solution to this common problem! The images below show what we do so solve this problem.

DELICATE COVERS

DELICATE COVERS

Saddle Stitching

First, we drill 2 large round holes in blank, lightweight stock and then fold as a 4-page. Then, we run the books through a normal Mueller saddle stitcher with the blank cover on. When the Saddle Stitched books are removed from the stitcher, the blank covers fall off.

Depending on the thickness, size and stock weight of the book, we shape the signatures using one of our 4 high die/PMC die cutting machines. We can produce Triangle Saddle Stitched Books in a wide range of sizes and can even add colored wire stitches.
