Equipment & Expertise

Our equipment and expertise are well suited to both long and short run magazine printing. Here are some basic questions to be considered when planning your magazine’s production. Their answers are important in the proper selection of paper, printing method and bindery/mailing/fulfillment options.

Questions About Magazine Printing

What is the usual number of pages?
Page count affects your choice of paper weight (thickness) and press and binding method.

What is your publication’s content?
Does it mainly contain text with a few illustrations or does it emphasize excellent photography and full page ads of luxury products or something else? For example, you might chose a very high grade of glossy paper for a magazine featuring high end photography. On the other hand you could chose a matte finish or an uncoated paper for top legibility and economy in a publication with lots of text matter. Are most copies mailed or are they distributed by other means? Total weight affects mailing costs so choosing lighter weight paper is usually more cost effective.

These factors affect your choice of paper weight (thickness) and press and binding methods. Our bindery includes multiple high speed saddle stitching systems as well as a perfect binding line for higher page count publications. In-line addressing and sorting save time and dollars compared to utilizing specialty mailing houses. Our experts can help you to decide what papers and binding methods will work best for your magazine printing.
