When investing in any printing, and especially in magazine printing, as yourself if there are any additional services that will be required along with your printed materials, such as special finishes – shape cutting, laminates, varnishing, foil blocking etc., as well as mail merges, email marketing and e-newsletters, logistics or dispatching. As with the print and design itself, a first-rate print company should have no problem referring you to someone to take care of special requirements like this. Although if they are able to offer additional services like this in-house, as we are at Evolution Print and Design, then so much the better, as it will make the execution of the project far more straightforward.

Your print company should take as much time as is necessary to understand your requirements before beginning work on a project, be it magazine printing or any other service. No two businesses are alike, so a truly exceptional print and design service needs to be completely bespoke, not based on templates. This includes familiarising themselves with your existing branding and marketing materials. If something has worked particularly well in the past, they might advise you to build on that, whereas if something has not proved to be effective, they should be able to offer an alternative solution. Regardless, the material they produce should reflect your business and its brand in the very best light.

Investing a little extra time in your magazine printing early on like this can save a lot of time and money further down the line and make sure you receive exactly what you want for the price you expected.
