The above should be taken as a guide in respect of 4pp,6pp,8pp,12pp,16pp and 24pp sections of Saddlestitch, Perfect/Burst Bound or Section Sewn Booklet.

When considering overs in respect to Brochures, the complexity of the fold and the type of paper stock and coating, determine the number of overs. With multiple folds, the number of overs increases, depending on the number of folds.
