1. Versatility in Size, Focus on Thickness

Saddle sewing, also known as center-sewing or side-sewing, offers a versatile approach to binding. While the width and height have ample room for customization, the real magic lies in its ability to bind pages that are exceptionally thin. This makes it an ideal choice for projects where thickness is a key consideration.
