Saddle sewing is a type of binding that is meant to be seen. This thread used in saddle sewn books can match or contrast the stock and graphics or be matched to a corporate colour. This unique binding method shows through the front cover and the centre spread.
The thread can be cut short or can be left long so it’s more noticeable. The above images show an example of clipped threads and long threads. The images below show some amazing specialty folds we can no do on saddle sewn books!
