Butterfly Binding

Also termed as loop binding, butterfly binding is quite similar to saddle stitch binding, except for the fact that in this binding there are also 2 or 3 extra pieces of loops outside the spine. In this binding, few signatures are collected in order, stapled and help by 2 or 3pcs of loops outside the spine. 

For this type of binding, you need to tell your binder size to the printer. Generally, in butterfly binding 3pcs loops are used. The average distance between two ring centers in this binding is 4.291”. Butterfly binding is mostly used for tool brochures and furniture catalogs, with an average page count of 64 pages.

What is the method of butterfly binding?

The different stages of the butterfly binding are as follows –

  • At first, the required text or images are printed on a large sheet which is later on folded so as to make the text appear on both sides of the sheets.
  • Once the printing process is done, you have to take all the sheets and assemble them in place and also put a back and front cover.
  • Then holes are punched along the spine leaving a certain gap. The number of holes also has a standard value.
  • Then a few signatures are stapled together and there are a couple of loops that are attached outside or extra support as well.
