Did you know that “stitching” is another word for stapling? The only difference is that the phrase stapling is generally used when you’re trying to bind together no more than 40 pages. Stapling is done with lightweight desktop equipment. Custom paper stitching generally requires an industrial-sized, floor-mounted piece of equipment. At our printing firm, we have a variety of stapling and paper stitching machines that can handle any type of book or printed project you need to assemble.
