High quality custom fashion magazine printing and paper tips
Firstly, some fashion magazine sizes are larger than regular A4 size magazines. For a magazine of larger size, we suggest a thicker paper for the covers and the interiors. The best suits for the cover of these types of magazines include 250gsm and 300gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper. 157gsm and 200gsm gloss art paper or matte paper for interiors would prove to be a good choice. Furthermore, we suggest large size magazines to be sewn and perfect bound.
Secondly, many fashion magazines include advertisement pages in them. Please make sure these ad pages are of high-resolution and the sizes are the same as your magazine’s size. Normally, we suggest all the pictures to be over 300dpi. If there are small size texts in your magazine, please make the small size texts to be made with 100% black color and a vector file. Please do not design the small size black texts as CMYK color printing.
Thirdly, to make the fashion magazine brighter, we suggest using gloss art paper for the inner pages. If you prefer a kind of natural style to your fashion magazine, we suggest using offset paper. However, the color printed on offset papers may be darker than the colors printed on gloss art paper, so keep this in mind.
Finally, many magazines have a bar code on the front cover or the back cover. When you design the bar codes, please design the bar code background in white and the bar code as a vector file. This is to ensure that the bar code is printed clearly and it can be easily scanned.
Fashion magazine binding tips
First and foremost, for the fashion magazines that has covers with flaps on the front or back cover, if the flap is the same as your magazine’s size, please make sure that the flap is shorter than magazine’s size by at least 3mm, or the magazine cover is wider than magazine’s interior width by around 0.5-1mm.
Next, many fashion magazines show off luxury products. To have the magazine quality match that of the advertised product, we suggest making use of spot UV, foil stamping, soft touch lamination, high gloss lamination or embossing. In order to properly create the spot UV printing file or the foil stamping printing file, the files should be separated from the cover background artwork and they should be in the form of a vector file.
