There are two types of booklets that can be made: plus-cover booklets and self-cover booklets.
Plus-cover Books/Booklets use a heavier stock for the cover than the pages within. This style is typically used for directories, catalogs, annual reports and calendars. A heavier stock cover adds durability to pieces that will get a lot of use. Plus-cover booklets can be bound in a number of ways, including saddle stitching, perfect binding, plasticoil binding, and double loop wiro binding.
Self-cover Books/Booklets do not have a hard cover. Instead, the “cover” is the same paper weight and stock as the pages within. This style is typically used for newsletters and magazines. Self-cover booklets are limited to saddle stitch binding where the page spreads are folded in half and then fastened together with two staples on the fold. Saddle stitched booklets must have a page count that is a multiple of 4.
