Your magazines will have a better chance of attracting readers if the covers have full color images and text. It’s less expensive to print a full color magazine cover than you might think, and it’s almost always worth the extra small cost versus a dull one or two-color magazine cover printing. So always use full color magazine covers and full color images and text for your magazines.
Keep in mind that a "magazine" doesn't necessarily mean something that advertises items for sale. It is a matter of the product size, how it is assembled on machines, how it gets cut and stitched, and so forth. It could easily be a book, a guide, a series of maps, a photo book, an annual report, a repair manual, a coloring book, or any other idea you may have!
Choose an aqueous coating, especially for the magazine cover. Glossy coated paper is popular in publications like magazines, and gives your magazine cover printing a rich, classy look. Dull or matte coating gives your magazine cover printing a more muted, understated look, and will improve readability over a glossy coating. Aqueous coatings make your magazine and magazine cover more durable, less likely to show fingerprints and smudges, and if you are mailing your magazine, will improve its durability in the mailing process.
A heavy paper for your magazine cover printing is important. You want your covers to look great for a long time. A heavy magazine cover stock along with a resilient aqueous coating will maximize the durability of your magazine, giving you more opportunities to communicate your message. So use a thicker and more protective material for the cover of your magazine printing.
Depending on the size, weight, and your use, the inside pages may need to be very thin or very thick. while this may require custom quoting to get the printing aspect within your budget, one must very closely look at the U.S.P.S. postage rates if your book needs to be mailed to ensure the postage is within your price range. We never mark up or profit on postage when you mail with us.
