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.
