We make saddle stitched booklets in 3 standard sizes: 5.5" x 8.5", 8.5" x 11", and 7" x 8.5". All saddle stitched booklets must be created in multiples of 4 pages, counting each page as you would in a normal page numbered book. Thus, a single page folded in half becomes a 4 page “book.”
Booklets can be “self-covered” (in which the cover stock is the same as the inside pages) or have a separate cover. A 16 page booklet could be 16 self-covered pages or 12 inside pages plus a cover. The total pages (inside plus cover) should appear on the job order form and there is a place to specify if there is a separate cover stock.
The inside pages of our standard booklets cannot bleed to the edge of the page, but the cover can. A bleed cover must be designed as a 2-page spread. We have therefore provided templates for both the inside pages and outside cover of a booklet in each of the standard sizes. If the booklet is “self-covered” and without bleeds, you can use the inside pages template for all your pages, including the cover. Insert pages after page 1 as needed for your booklet.
