Below are some key things to remember when planning your booklet/magazine for print. 



Planning is the best way to go and it’s better to over plan than under plan. Researching examples of magazines or booklets that fit your desired idea is a great way to begin. It’s good practice to have a look at printing shops online and browse through the layouts of the booklets online and get an idea from that. 

You never know what you may come across and seeing multiple examples of businesses choosing a specific print shop will make you more confident about choosing the right place to print your designs.

High-Quality Images

All goes to waste if you fill the printing piece with bad quality images, which will reflect badly on your business. Seeing bad quality only means not paying attention to detail or simply not caring about the finished effect, and this is not the picture you want to paint. 

It’s a good idea to take your own great quality images of your business, which you can see instant print doing throughout the examples of various printing styles. 

Taking time to create your own branded material such as images of the front of your business will be beneficial in promoting it.



Never underestimate the power fonts hold. Firstly, it determines the readability of your magazine/booklet so it’s the most important aspect of the piece. Without visible and easy to read information, there’s little point in creating an advertisement.

Research the different styles of fonts and device what kind of vibe you want to give off. Going for a sans serif will always make you appear that bit more modern, or if you’d like to stick with a classic feel then a serif font is the one for you.
