Stapling & Saddle Stitching is a method of securing loose printed pages with staples down the middle of a folded sheaf of papers. Many booklets are saddled-stitched. Side-stitching is a similar method where the pages are stapled about 1/4″ from the spine. This is a cost effective way to attach up to 40 pages and can save quite a bit. Pros: cheap! Cons – not for bigger presentations.
