Loop stitches

London Design Festival 1

London Design Festival 2

Loop stitching is a method of saddle-stitching one or more printed sections together with loop wire staples (stitches) through the spine and centre-spread
 
The loops allow the printed item to be inserted into a binder, hung in a gallery, or displayed in an interesting way.

Sometimes used for brochures, catalogues, and booklets, this particular example was loop stitched with brass wire after being printed on our Heidelberg litho offset press for designer Constanza Gaggero to promote Chilean design during the London Design Festival.

It uses 90gsm Artic Volume White for the text pages and 90gsm Parche Marque for the cover (with throw-out french flaps).
