This is a method of creating a booklet by creating a double page sheet and stitching the pages together through the center fold. Saddle stitching allows the booklet to open flat but can only be done through a maximum thickness. When the booklet is too thick for saddle stitching, a different stitch must be used. Saddle stitching is done with binding wire (or "saddle" wire).
