Book Binding Signatures with Staples | Saddle Stitch


In this video, I'm bookbinding signatures with staples (Saddle Stitch). 

Two sheets of folded 8.5 by 11-inch paper. 

Here is a list of tools and supplies I'll be using. 

2 x Paper - 8.5 by 11-inch 
Aluminum ruler 
Bone Folder 
Small pieces of Craft Board (Foam Core) 
Posted Notes 
Pencil with eraser tip 
Paper clips 
Cutting Mat 
X-Acto Knife


Hi all, in this video, I'm folding the signature sheets individually; after further education, there is another method to fold the signatures as one unit with the bone folder.

When creating the paper, it's better to start from the bottom up with the bone folder. 

In the end, it's up to you. I'm referencing this method from the book called, "Hand Bookbinding: A Manual of Instruction," by Aldren Auld Watson. Check out the video below.
