Saddle Stitch Brochures - Square
Say what you need to say and look good doing it with our square saddle stitched booklets.
A corporate brochure is a way to give customers a brief taste of what you're offering; they set the scene for everything to come. So it's important to make sure your printed brochures are perfect.
With more and more companies attempting to think outside the box, when it comes to brochure printing you need to get creative. Our square brochures are a subtle twist on tradition.
A unique custom booklet not only informs and engages your target audience but will set you part from competition. With over 25 years experience behind us, at Better Printing we can help you create something special.
Saddle stitching is the most common form of binding; strong staples are inserted into the spine to bind the brochure pages together. We recommend saddle stitching for smaller brochures and booklets of between 8 and 40 pages. For thicker brochures please see our square perfect bound brochures.
All our square catalogues are printed using our Litho print press on premium 150gsm silk throughout. Our standard square brochures measure 210mm x 210mm but other sizes are available on request.
Designs can be uploaded at the checkout stage. Files should be uploaded in PDF format as single pages; our team can give you guidance as required.
For our full range of sizes, finishes, lamination and printing options please see the specifications tab.

Saddle stitching is a bookbinding method which is very similar to stapling. This method assembles brochure pages by first nesting several folded double-leaf spreads on top of each other (starting with the middlemost pages and finishing with the outer cover leaf).
The brochure pages are then stitched together by threading lengths of metal wire (similar to staples) through all pages along the central crease line.
Saddle-stitched brochures are cost-effective to produce, and can be laid fairly flat while open; which means the inner edge of the print won’t get lost in the spine area of the brochure. The latter also makes them ideal for hands-free publications, such as instruction booklets and guides.
You can view our page count options in the table below. Each paper sheet (or ‘leaf’) of your brochure will have two printed pages (pp); one on each side of the paper. Brochure covers consist of four pages, and are included in addition to the page counts listed in the table below.
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.

- A5 (148mm by 210mm)
- A6 (105mm by 148mm)

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.
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.
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.
