We have the perfect solution for printing your annual reports, magazines, brochures and other booklets - Stapled Documents.
Stapled documents or saddle stitching as it is known in printing industry terms means binding pages together using staples along the spine. This is a straightforward technique for documents up to 48 printed pages, giving you a professional finish with sharp, vibrant colour at a low price. We also square off the spine for an even better finish on books with more than 40 printed pages.
All saddle-stitched books 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” and so on.
We have a great range of high-quality papers for you to choose from, including a broad selection of luxury papers. Choose heavier stock for the cover, with a choice of matt or gloss lamination for added strength. Choose a lighter stock for inner text pages (and for more than 28 pages, 130gsm or lighter to stop your document springing open).
Use our easy online ordering process to choose the size and finish you need from A4 portrait, 1/3 A4 portrait, A5 portrait or landscape, 210 x 210mm square. Then choose from single or double-sided lamination in gloss or matt finish, or opt for no lamination.
Silk coated paper has a smooth feel with a discreet surface sheen. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast and printed colours appear distinct and clear. A recycled option is available. (130gsm – 350gsm)
Gloss coated paper has a shiny surface and very smooth finish. Colour is sharp and stands out well. Ink dries quickly and the need for lamination is reduced. (130gsm – 350gsm)
Our premium uncoated paper is more absorbent than coated papers. Printed inks appear flatter due to this absorbency and the paper has a soft finish. A recycled option is available. (100gsm – 350gsm)
We have a comprehensive selection of luxury papers for when only the best will do.
- Acquerello (160gsm-280gsm)
- Constellation Snow (170gsm-280gsm)
- Laid (100gsm-300gsm)
- Mohawk Felt (120gsm-300gsm)

Matt lamination gives a soft, contemporary effect. Gloss lamination gives a higher quality shine finish than gloss card. Lamination is most useful with solid colours or images to enhance their vibrancy or where you want to protect your printed documents. Lamination is only available on stocks over 250gsm.
Lamination is not available on luxury papers. We offer fast and efficient turnarounds on stapled documents. Our promise to you is simple - satisfaction guaranteed. With thousands of happy customers, please take a look at our stapled documents reviews.

The quality of my saddle-stitched book and the quality of service was outstanding—the process was also so easy, quick, and cost-effective! I had ordered the same book from another company— that process was time consuming, more expensive, and the quality was nowhere near as good... I will be using DigitalPrinting again for All my future printing requirements. Highly recommend!
Absolutely fantastic support and a top notch product.
Very impressed with the quality of print and the speed of delivery. Will use again!
