Vibrant Magazine Production Via Affordable Digital Printing

Through the years, we witness the evolution of magazine production. Today, the two most common forms of magazine printing services are offset printing and digital printing.

The offset printing process uses an etched plate for every image to be printed. The ink adheres to the plate with the different colors being applied to the appropriate areas. The ink is then transferred to the paper using an offset printing press.

The digital printing process does not use plates to transfer the ink. The image is drawn using electrostatic rollers, also known as drums. Then, a toner is applied onto the paper and fused them using a high-heat process.

Digital printing offers several advantages over offset. Unlike Offset Printing that needs a separate plate for every image, which makes editing process tedious and time-sapping; Digital Printing makes editing quick and print both images instantly. It is also quick to set up than offset method. In addition, its print outputs are dry, which expedites the finishing process.

Printing is the last step when publishing your final magazine. But it is important to take particular attention to the printing process. It will save you dollars as it can help you avoid unnecessary expenses related to printing errors. The goals is to come up a newsstand quality with minimal cost as much as possible.

Magazine Binding Services That Meets Your Expectation

We offer a wide range of binding services for magazines, newspapers and other periodicals such as professional journals. If you have a collection you will like to preserve, we will help. We designed to help you make decisions as you print a magazine as such we will discuss binding and coating.

Regarding the magazine binding process, by understanding your options prior to placing your printing order you will come out of the process with a magazine that exceeds your expectations. That is the goal and here are the tools to help you achieve that satisfaction.

Page Binding for Magazines. The final process of attaching your magazine pages together in a finished product is called binding. For magazine printing, there are two main types of binding: Perfect-bound and Saddle-bound aka saddle-stitched.

Perfect-bound is the most common binding method you will see when browsing magazines on newsstands. This binding style results in a square edge appearance. It is ideal if you plan to print a magazine with a higher page count. In fact,e you will need to meet a page minimum in order to achieve a perfect bind with the perfect-bound style.

If you want to save money, the saddle-bound option might be your best solution. Using staples for binding, this process is best suited for smaller publications as there is not a minimum page requirement.

Other options for magazine binding include case binding and spiral-bound. While these are not the most commonly used for magazines, in general, they do serve their purpose. If you have a magazine that will be used regularly for reference or hands-on assignments, then the coil binding of spiral-bound magazines is optimal. Spiral-bound binding allows you to lay the magazine completely flat on a surface.

Case binding is typically reserved for hardbound books. Using this binding, your magazine printer would sew the pages together and attach a hardcover to the exterior.

Magazine Page Coatings. The finished product of a magazine involves its page coating. Varnish, Matte UV and Gloss UV. While gloss UV is more glossy and more attractive for colors, matte UV is more professional and textured. Varnish is a toned-down version of gloss UV. Understanding the process involved when you want to print a magazine ensures you will get the right results from your magazine printer. We are here to help you create your next publication.
