How to Purchase This Item:

Introducing the Stitchliner Mark IV, a state-of-the-art saddlestitcher bookletmaking machine by Horizon, a leading Japanese company.

Stitchliner Mark IV: Ultimate Automation & High Productivity

This model is the latest in an amazing product line of saddlestitchers and bookletmakers from Horizon. The difference between the Mark IV and Mark V is how they are fed.
