Business Magazine Printing Ideas Magazine printing is a great idea for businesses to communicate and connect with prospects and customers. Many businesses create quarterly publications to interact with customers and prospects in a way that doesn’t seem like a sales push. Magazine printing and mailing is a resourceful way to keep people informed about your company, interact in a more personal manner and promote new products or events. As your magazine printing evolves you can even start to sell advertising to companies whose products compliment yours.

Magazine Printing And Variable Data
Magazine readers handpick subscriptions and publications based on hobbies, careers and interests. Most magazines attract specific readers so it is generally easy to segment your readers and discover ways to use variable data printing within your magazine printing to get personal.
Variable data printing is actually very simple. Take a closer look at your customer or subscriber list. Break it down into manageable groups that you could market to differently. For example; East coast readers vs. West coast readers. Rather then limiting your advertising to companies they both know, you can place different ads based on location all in one print run. Incorporating variable data into your magazine printing can be as simple as including the readers name in an article or on the front cover image or more complex such as inserting different paragraphs and articles based on the readers interest.
Why personalize? Imagine taking data that you know about your readers, such as product preferences, past purchases, or key attributes specific to them and being able to personalize the cover of your magazine printing to their specific taste. Change out images, text, colors and more to individualize our message.

Magazine and Publication Printing and Mailing
Magazines may be mailed as a flat or a letter depending on the dimensions of the piece. Anything that exceeds one of the maximum dimensions for letter-class mail is considered a flat. That means it would be either more than 6 1/8” in height or more than 11 1/2” in length.
If a flat-sized piece is thin enough it may be possible to fold it in half and still mail it at letter-class postage rates.
Special tabbing rules apply for all letter-class booklet mailings. There must be two 1 ∏” tabs on the leading edge (the right hand edge if you are looking at the address), and one 1 ∏” tab on the trailing edge. This is true for a letter sized booklet where the bound edge is on the bottom of the piece or for a larger booklet folded in half to letter size. For a folded-in-half booklet the spine should be on the right and the fold on the bottom.
For a flat-sized booklet the height of the piece is considered as the longer side regardless of how the address is oriented. The address is required to be placed in the top half of the piece and the spine must be on the right or leading edge.
After sending the *.zip file of our magazine to be printed, I can start to relax. The pressure is off. I know that my job is in very good hands; I know that the magazine will look super from front to back; it will be done well and mailed to our members on time. So what else could I ask for?
