Ask MagCloud: Print Distribution
What binding options do you offer?
For 8.25" x 10.75" Standard, 8" x 8" Square and all Digest printed publications, we offer both Saddle Stitch Binding and Perfect Binding, depending on the number of pages in your PDF. Saddle stitch bound publications are folded and stapled together. Perfect bound publications are square at the spine and use glue to hold the pages, like a paperback book. Perfect Binding gives your publications a more professional feel, and can accommodate a much higher page count, while saddle stitch binding works best for shorter MagCloud publications.
For 10.75" x 8.25" Standard, 12" x 12" Square and all Tabloid printed publications, we offer only Wire-O Binding at this time. Wire-O bound publications have a double loop wire binding going through holes punched along the binding edge, allowing them to lie flat on a table.
All Pamphlet products have a Half-fold Binding, while Flyer and Poster products are a single sheet of paper and therefore have no binding.
After you have uploaded your PDF you will be given a choice of binding options based on the size and number of pages in your PDF. Visit our Print Options page to learn about the minimum and maximum number of pages for each binding option.
