When you have lots of information to communicate to your customers, what better way to tell them about your products and services than with a beautiful, multi-page booklet, catalogue, magazine, book or business directory? Our presses can handle a wide range of book sizes and finishes, giving you a final product that will encourage your customers to pick it up and read it.


When it comes to paper stock, Pinnacle Litho can recommend the right paper choice to match the tone and branding of your business.

We carry matte and glossy finished papers in different weights or thicknesses. If you are marketing a product and want a magazine with sharp, vibrant colours, we might suggest a lightweight, glossy stock. If you are trying to convey an elegant and modern impression, we could suggest a heavier, off-white, matte paper. We can print a glossy coat on selected graphic elements to enhance the cover. Contact us today to get started on your next project.


Any multi-page document needs a way to be held together. The main two options are Perfect Binding and Saddle Stitch. Each binding choice has its advantages:

Saddle Stitch or Stapling

This binding method is most commonly used for magazines, brochures or booklets.

Saddle Stitching

The pages of the book are folded in half, collated and nested one inside the other. Then the stack of papers sits on a device called a saddle where it is held down. A thin, metal wire is stitched through the book—basically an automated way to staple the pages together. Typically, two staples are used per booklet but larger books can use more. Saddle stitching is useful up to a maximum page count. That number is generally between 64 and 100 pages, depending on the thickness of the paper used.

There are definite benefits to saddle stitching. It's a great, low-cost way to bind books and it looks clean and professional. In addition, when mailing booklets, saddle stitching doesn't add enough weight to increase the cost of postage. Although it's better for lower page counts, saddle stitching is versatile and can be used for a wide range of book sizes.

Perfect Binding

Perfect bound books are more durable than saddle stitched books and are well-suited for catalogues, manuals, annual and corporate accounts as well as softcover books—all documents with a higher page count.

Perfect Binding

With this binding method, pages are stacked up neatly so the folds line up. Then hot glue is used to join the book cover to the pages. This method gives a neat, professional appearance and if the book is thick enough, the spine can have the title printed on it. The cost is higher than saddle stitch binding and perfect binding takes longer to produce on account of the gluing process. But if you want that higher-end, quality look, perfect binding is...perfect!

Other finishing options

In addition to Perfect Binding and Saddle Stitch, we do offer other binding methods such as Spiral Wire. We can work with your budget to make your printing project successful, just ask us.
