What are we talking about?

The square back binding is a type of binding where the perfect binding meets the saddle stitch binding. The pages are bound together by stapling, but the spine is flat. The difference with the standard saddle stitch binding is that we flatten the spine so that it looks like a perfect binding.

The greatest benefit is that you get a finish close to the perfect binding back but at a significantly lower cost. You will be able to upgrade your document quality without exceeding your budget.

Ideal for...

The most common applications will be the same as for the standard saddle stitch binding, with the added value provided by a straight, flattened spine: restaurant menus, leaflets, instructions, results reports, school textbooks, product catalogues, periodical magazines, communication media, trade shows catalogs, newspapers, booklets, notebooks, etc.


Don't forget to take into account the number of pages as well as the paper thickness of your inner pages. You want to select the square binding for booklets between 52 and 96 pages or booklets with a particularly high inner page weight: +80lb. These two elements will determine the overall thickness of your brochure.

If you have any doubts about the most appropriate type of binding, feel free to contact us.
