When it comes to saddle stitched booklets, many people wonder if they can have a thicker cover than the inside pages. The answer is yes! You can choose a cover stock that is 10pt or thicker for a thicker cover. It's important to note that paper stocks are measured differently. "lb" refers to text stocks which are thinner and are typically used for the inside pages of a booklet.
On the other hand, "pt" refers to cover stocks (or card stocks) which are thicker and are commonly used for the cover of a booklet. So, if you want a thicker cover for your saddle stitched booklet, be sure to choose a cover stock that is measured in "pt" rather than "lb." This will help you achieve the desired thickness for your booklet cover.
