Loop Bound Booklets

Need to store or file away booklets while keeping all the information inside within easy reach? Choose loop-bound booklets from Better Printing!

Loop-stitching is almost identical to the standard saddle-stitching bookbinding method, but with one key difference; each metal wire stitch at the booklet spine is extended out from the booklet in an open loop shape.

This simple modification enables loop-bound booklets to slip neatly into any standard ring binder or lever arch file; and unlike hole-punched brochures, loop stitched booklets can lie flat inside the binder without any page tearing. Plus, you won’t risk spoiling your booklets by punching holes through text and images!

Loop-stitched booklets are ideal for product catalogues, service brochures, company policy handbooks, training manuals, company records filing and more - and at Better Printing, you’re free to customise your loop stitching print run with your own bespoke artwork, product specifications and finishing options.

What is loop stitching?


The loop stitching bookbinding method is similar to saddle stitching, where pages are printed as four-page spreads, then folded, nested and fastened together with metal wire strips which function just like staples.

However, loop stitching differs by extending each metal stitch outwards in a loop; enabling each booklet to easily fit inside a ring binder or lever arch file, while also keeping all the pages of the booklet easily accessible and safe from tearing.

How many pages can my loop-stitched booklets have?


You can view our page count options in the table below. Each paper sheet (or ‘leaf’) of your booklet will have two printed pages (pp); one on each side of the paper. Please note that these numbers include the booklet cover, which consists of four printed pages.

If you’re still unsure about page counts, or you need a different number of pages to the options here, call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss your requirements.

What paper stocks are these booklets printed on?


Please see the Specification tab for more information on this product’s standard material specification. Alternative stocks and grades can be supplied for most products to help you customise your order - simply drop us a line!

Will my loop-stitched brochures be printed via litho printing or digital printing methods?


The right print method will depend on a number of factors; including the product type, quantity and turnaround time you require

Better Printing can produce your order on either litho or digital, with both available in-house. Our sales team can recommend the most cost-effective solution for your needs and will confirm your preferred method before going to print.

How do I select portrait or landscape printing?


All brochures and booklets are produced in portrait orientation (with the spine located on the longer edge of the booklet) by default. Alternatively, you can specify landscape orientation for your brochures if needed at the checkout stage.

What imposition or page order format should I use for my artwork?


We recommend supplying artwork as single pages in the same order as you want them to appear in the finished brochure. Please avoid supplying your artwork in printer’s pairs or double page spreads, as this may extend production times of your print order.
