Saddle stitched letterpressed booklet

I’m a newbie, so be easy on me.

I am working on a project right now and I want it to be a letterpress job. The client wants it to be saddle stitched. My question is can you do that with letterpress? double sided and folded and what not? Would you experienced folks advise against it? I was thinking of doing a card set instead. Thanks.

As far as I know letterpress has been printed on both sides of a piece of paper since about the mid 15th century. Most printed books, for instance, from then to about 1960, were printed letterpress. About 500 years worth before letterpress failed commercially.

Hard to be easy on you. You don’t know this and you are entertaining work for clients? You might want to get some good hard work experience first before putting out that placard.

This is good advice.
