Magazine Printing Paper Types

There are a variety of different paper types for printing a magazine. We have a range of paper stocks to choose from, depending on the look and feel that you’re aiming for.

Some of the most popular types of paper for magazine printing include gloss, silk, uncoated and recycled paper. Your magazine can stand out from the crowd if you select the right paper type and paper weight.

  • Gloss has a shiny finish that really makes colours pop. It’s also durable, so it’s perfect for magazines that will be handled a lot. If you’re looking for a high-quality finish, then this paper type is the way to go.

  • Silk is a great alternative to gloss paper if you’re looking for something that’s not as shiny. It has a smooth finish that’s easy to read and write on. Silk paper is also eco-friendly, so it’s perfect for magazines that are trying to be more sustainable.

  • Uncoated is the most popular type for magazines. It’s affordable and versatile, making it perfect for magazines that are on a budget. Uncoated paper is also easy to print on, so it’s perfect for magazines that have a lot of text.

  • Recycled is a great choice for magazines that are trying to be more sustainable. It’s made from recycled materials, so it’s good for the environment. Recycled paper is also usually cheaper than other types of paper, so it’s the perfect option if you are working with a limited budget.

Magazine Binding Options

There are a few different binding options available when printing a magazine. The most common option is saddle stitching, which involves stitching the pages together through the spine with wire. This is a fairly cost-effective option and it results in a sturdy magazine. Another common binding option is perfect binding, which involves glueing the pages to a spine and then wrapping the cover around it. This option results in a magazine that is less likely to fall apart, but it is more expensive. 

It is possible to have too many pages for staple binding to support or too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our expert team can help you know which option is best when we know the final page count. If you have any questions about which option is best for printed magazines, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly customer service team.

Magazine Printing FAQs

If your magazine does not contain enough content, you will need to add blank pages. Blank pages will add weight and bulk to your magazine, so only use them if you absolutely need to.

If you’re printing a magazine with us, you have a few options for how to deal with blank pages:

  1. You can add filler content. This could be text, images, or even advertising. Filler content can help improve the look of your magazine and make it more enjoyable to read.
  2. You can leave the pages blank. This is usually only recommended if you’re printing a very short magazine or if the content on the other pages is particularly strong.
  3. You can print with bleed. Bleed is when you print your content slightly larger than the finished page size. This allows you to trim off the excess content after printing, ensuring that there are no blank pages in your magazine.

If you’re unsure about which option is best for you, our team of experts can help. We’ll work with you to ensure that your magazine is printed exactly how you want it.

A magazine typically has between 20 and 200 pages. The number of pages in a magazine can depend on the type of magazine, its audience, and its content. For example, a trade magazine aimed at businesses might have fewer pages than a consumer-focused magazine.

There are a few types of paper that can be used for printing glossy magazines, but the most common is coated stock. Coated stock is slightly heavier than regular printer paper, and has a glossy finish that makes colours pop and images look sharp. If you’re looking to print a magazine that really stands out, coated stock is the way to go.

There are a few benefits to printing your magazine on coated stock:

  1. Colours will appear brighter and more vibrant.
  2. Images will be sharper and clearer.
  3. The overall look and feel of the magazine will be more upscale and professional.

The coated stock is the best choice if you want your magazine to look and feel high-quality.

If you’re not looking to use coated stock, there are a few other options you can use:

  1. Regular printer paper: This is the most common type of paper used for magazines. It’s less expensive than coated stock, but your colours may not be as vibrant and your images may not be as sharp.
  2. Heavyweight printer paper: This paper is similar to coated stock, but it’s not as glossy. It’s a good option if you’re looking for a high-quality look without the expense of coated stock.
  3. Cardstock: This is a thick, heavyweight paper that’s often used for business cards and postcards. It’s not as common for magazines, but it can give your publication a unique look and feel.

If you’re looking for a specific type of paper or you’re not sure what will work best for your magazine, talk to our friendly customer service team. They’ll be able to help you choose the right paper for your project.
