Custom auto magazine printing inner page design tips
Firstly, in order to show various auto parts of high quality, the photos used should be of high quality as well. Choosing a professional photographer for clicking your car or auto photos would be a good choice. All photos that you have submitted for printing should be of at least 300dpi. If you can provide very high quality photos, we can also provide 220lpi printing.
Secondly, if there are some important advertisements in the inner pages, you can design these advertisement pages with high gloss lamination on both sides. In the meantime, your design needs to accommodate four pages or eight pages as one signature. Tall lamination signature page counts need to be divided by four. For the lamination of the inner pages, the use of at least 157gsm art paper is a must. Otherwise, the paper remains too thin for lamination on both sides.
Thirdly, if you are publishing a takeaway magazine we suggest the use of a thinner paper and saddle stitch binding. The total cost becomes much cheaper in this case, and you also get to save on the dispatch fee.
Fourthly, some magazine images might cross in between two pages, we suggest that you opt for sewing and perfect binding or saddle stitching for such cases. With these techniques the images can be connected well after binding.
Lastly, if you need to check your auto magazine’s color, we can print a hard proof before printing the mass product. We have GMG color proof system to make sure that the hard proof color is almost the same with mass product. In order for you to check the paper quality and binding you can ask us to print a dummy for you as well. A dummy is bound by the same methods and uses the same paper as the mass product. In any case, you will have a fair idea about what the mass product will be.
Custom auto magazine cover design tips
Firstly, in order to increase the advertising income, some magazine publishers do extra sheets of front or back cover. If you want to follow this style, please make sure that the front cover width or back cover width is less at least 3mm more than the magazine’s width. You can also ensure that the front cover and back cover are wider by at least 0.5-1mm than the inner width. If you have opted for this style getting both the sides laminated would prove to be a wise decision.
Secondly, if you prefer your auto magazine to be of a high quality or have features, which enables the auto to pop up on the cover, we suggest choosing spot UV for the cover’s outside where the auto photo is going to be. Spot UV can emboss the photo and make it look like highly glossy.
