Magazine printing has a variety of purposes. Businesses can create elaborate, high-quality product catalogues which are later distributed or sent to customers. Journals or periodicals can similarly be created using this process. It can even be applied to book printing. The wide range of refinement and printing options allows you to perfectly customise your books, journals or gazettes. Our tip: Leavers’ books look great as magazines. All we need is a suitable print file, and we can print lots of copies quickly and all at once!
Magazines in different formats
Your magazine format: 9 standard sizes and special formats available
We print your magazines in nine different standard formats, including: DIN A6 (105 x 148 mm), DIN Long (105 x 210 mm), DIN A5 (148 x 210 mm), Art size (210 x 280 mm) and DIN A4 (210 x 297 mm). You can also choose numerous special formats, and print customised sizes upon request. So you can tailor your print product’s dimensions to suit its ultimate purpose!
Your paper options: Coated art paper, offset or recycled
At print24, magazines start with 40 pages per copy, which can be increased to up to 160. Please note that the number of pages always refers to the closed, finished magazine, and does not include the cover. The following seven types of paper are available:
- 90 gsm Coated art paper
- 115 gsm Coated art paper
- 135 gsm Coated art paper
- 170 gsm Coated art paper
- 80 gsm Offset
- 90 gsm Offset
- 100 gsm Offset
- 120 gsm Offset
- 80 gsm Recycled white
All coated art paper can be printed with either a matte or glossy finish. They are also PEFC-certified. The high-quality recycled paper bears the Blue Angel certificate.
Printing magazines with special colours? No problem!
When printing your magazine content, you can enjoy all the options of a modern print shop. Whether it be simple monochrome like a classic newspaper, or exclusive with Pantone or HKS colours, it makes no difference to us, because we can easily produce over 1,700 different special colours, including silver and gold, for you! All prints can be created in landscape or portrait format. Simply choose this option in the configuration menu.
Your jacket options
print24.com can print your jacket in the conventional 4-page format or in a more elaborate 6-page format. If you choose the latter, you’ll have an additional tuck-in page attached to the front or back cover. This special page is much narrower than your selected paper format. But there is even further room for creativity when printing jackets; you can select the same colour combinations as for the internal pages, allowing you to print the jacket in Pantone and CMYK colours, while the inside pages are only printed in black.
Choose your jacket paper
We create jackets using coated art paper with two different grammages, 170 gsm and 250 gsm. They can be printed in plain colour, multi-colour or with special colours. Colourful print paper allows you to achieve unique effects, while a choice of matte or gloss finish provides even more design options. If you have any questions, just ask our service team.
Manufacturing your magazines
For optimum quality, we bind your magazines using adhesive binding, which involves joining the individual sheets together as a block, and binding them with a special glue applied to the spine. print24.com uses polyurethane glue (PUR) for its adhesive binding. If you choose a six-page jacket for your magazines, you can also have these created with crease lines. Upon request, the selected magazines may also be perforated, and you can choose from one, two, three or four perforation lines. These lines are ideal for allowing recipients to easily remove certain elements, like vouchers.

Because first impressions count: Jacket refinement options
If your magazines have a jacket made from 170 gsm coated art paper, you can refine this through high-quality lamination, UV varnish, UV spot varnish + lamination, or UV spot varnish.
If we’re printing your jackets on 250 gsm coated art paper, you can also choose from options such as blind embossing, hot foil relief embossing, hot foil flat embossing, and UV varnish with any of the aforementioned embossing types.
If your outer pages feature blind embossing, this may be performed as infill or standard embossing to either allow refined letters to stand out or be impressed. Both variants give the magazine an unusual feel.
Choosing lamination allows the outer pages to feature four different finishes. Gloss creates classy, glossy effects, while matte gives the pages a simple, elegant look. We also offer jackets with linen and soft-touch finishes for a unique feel.
Hot foil relief embossing or simple hot foil flat embossing not only adds a special coating to the outer pages of your magazines; you can also achieve interesting visual effects with the colour of your choice – whether it be gold, silver, bronze, copper, red or blue.
Things get even more interesting if you opt for UV varnish or spot varnish, which can be applied individually as a gloss, or combined with several other refinements like blind embossing or lamination, on one or both sides. UV varnish with blind embossing is available with infill or standard embossing, on both sides. In the case of UV varnish with hot foil relief embossing or hot foil flat embossing, the extra colours gold, silver, copper, bronze, red and blue may be used on one or both sides. Furthermore, UV spot varnish allows your magazine to be enhanced with 1-sided lamination in a matte or soft-touch finish.
