Short-run Magazine Printing

Short-run magazine printing - NewsPhotographerWhen you think of magazines, do you just think of your monthly subscription to Rolling Stone, or the celebrity rags you browse while waiting in the checkout line of the grocery store? Maybe you also think of the shopping catalogs that come in the mail frequently.

Actually, there are all kinds of ways your business could use magazines to reach customers. From coupon booklets to promotional inserts, short-run magazine printing can be a great marketing tool.

Short-run Book Printing

Short-run Book PrintingOnce upon a time you wrote a book. And it was a great book – a fictional masterpiece crammed with adventure, dripping with pointed political commentary and just a sprinkle of romance. The characters were charming and witty, sarcastic and gorgeous, vengeful and brilliant.

But no one knows about your book because you couldn't afford to publish it. Your mom thought it was great, though.

Enter short-run book printing. With a short-run printer, you can publish enough copies of your book to give to friends and family. Companies can order copies of a project to preview before a big order or distribute for a presentation.

Printers who offer short-run services don't require you to order hundreds of copies of your book, like the commercial offset printers do.

Designing a brochure or pamphlet? You may have thought about content, color, and even paper type, but there's another factor you should consider. The type of fold you select for your project can greatly affect readability, ease of use and overall impact on your potential consumer. There are numerous options to choose from, but here are a few of the most popular ones.

It can be used with nearly all types of paper, though thicker stocks require scoring to produce a smooth fold. It works well with most sizes, although it's commonly used with 8.5″ x 11″, 8.5″ x 14″, 11″ x 17″ or 11″ x 25.5″ paper
