We had a batch of 100 magazines to print and needed a quick turnaround. PrintingCenterUSA had the best deal, the templates were very helpful, and the turnaround and quality were as promised.

I am so pleased with the printing quality. The whole process was intense because of me and Printing Center USA did everything in their power to make it stress free and to ensure the quality. Well, they did it! I got it on time, it was exactly the quality I was looking for but I was not sure I was going to get it for the money I paid. Thank you so much Printing Center USA, I will certainly continue using your services and will refer you.

Awesome company to work with. I placed a large order of magazines on a REALLY tight deadline, and PrintingCenter USA was really accommodating. Their customer service people are really informative, patient, and upfront (they answered a thousand questions coming from me), and they also informed me that they were short-staffed that week, but still shipped the project out on time. They were amazing. Would definitely work with them again!

Can't say enough good things about my experience with this company. I ordered some wedding planning guides for my photography business and they were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The print quality is fantastic and they were printed/ shipped in a super timely fashion! Will be ordering from them again!

The product is good. The printing & shipping times are a little misleading as the "printing times" don't include the day needed to approve the proof. To be more honest, the "printing time" should include an extra day.

I can't get over how great the printing quality is at Printing Center USA. My latest print job from them was 1/3 of the cost of the comparable printers. We saved money, and now we have an awesome product!! As a graphic designer, I love when my design on screen matches the printed product (colors, clarity, saturation). These guys are pros. I wish I'd known about them sooner!!!

Our magazines came out great, second year in a row. We publish a high school literary magazine and Printing Center USA has printed it both years and we've always been very impressed with the quality. Very sharp and precise printing, great color reproduction, and accuracy. On top of that, it's an amazing price. Much cheaper than we could get from our yearbook printer. Highly recommend.

I just received my first shipment & I AM VERY IMPRESSED. I was skeptical at first because they cost a fraction of what I am used to paying. So I thought quality would be an issue. However the quality is great, the photos are very clear & they are already selling fast! I will be using these guys permanently! Have another shipment coming in tomorrow!

Print order 219839 / 472115 Hello Mary... Kyle here. Received this order today. Great timing, great quality... but I am pretty frustrated. I sent the pages in specific sequential order. Not only did I number the files but uploaded the same way. And made a point to point that out on the approval. Can I understand why it is completely out of numeric order? It is laid out in way it makes completely no sense. The only page in appropriate place is the Cover. Please advise asap. This is utterly disappointing.

Have had you print several jobs and was definitely disappointed this time as I felt like my job was forgotten and then rushed as it wasn't the usual quality I get from you and was also not shipped as promised so didn't arrive when it was supposed to. The printed job felt different, the saddle-stitching wasn't well done. Hence the 3 stars for an average job, when normally I give you 5-stars. I will use you again to see if I get my usual 5-star quality with the next print job.

My 8.5 x 5.5 zines came out beautifully! Most printing companies tend to have outrageous prices, but it's nice to know that there is a company like Printingcenterusa that does great quality work and offer great pricing. Definitely recommend!

Low Cost Magazine Printing Ideas.

  • Articles or interviews that provide expert insight on relevant subjects are the most effective way to do this. For example, a marketing firm could release a magazine that analyzes new spending trends.
  • Similarly, a nonprofit publication could educate potential donors about worthwhile causes.
  • Businesses should include affordable advertisements and promotional materials interspersed with the articles.
  • The key is maintaining a good balance of informational and marketing content.
  • Organizations should consider combining both types of content when possible, such as running an article detailing how consumers could use a product.
  • Affordable magazines are effective marketing tools because they can reach broad audiences of consumers in fun and engaging ways.
  • Additionally, depending on how an organization prints publications, they can be a low cost-efficient marketing expense.
  • Another strategy entrepreneurs could use is selling discount advertising space to partnering businesses. This money could be put toward funding the inexpensive magazines.
  • Additionally, if sponsoring companies complement an entrepreneur's business, the publication could provide more value to the receiving consumers.

TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO CHECK YOUR FILE WITH OUR HANDY CHECKLIST BELOW.*

Our prices and times are based on you providing error free print ready files. Correcting file errors may cost extra money and time. TAKE A FEW MINUTES to CHECK your file with our handy checklist.

Adobe PDF Setting

Is The Easiest Way To Submit Files And Offers Less Chance For File Errors.(In Design, Illustrator, Photoshop)

FILE CHECKLIST:

Bleed, Trim, and Safety:

There are three main elements to know when setting up a document with a bleed. They are the bleed line, trim line, and safety line.

Bleed Line: 1/8" (.125)

One important custom printing term to know is a bleed. Bleed refers to an extra 1/8" (.125) of image that extends beyond the trim area of your printing piece. The project is printed on an oversized sheet that is cut down to size with the appearance that the image bleeds off the edge of the paper.

Trim Line:

Trim line indicates where to trim the printed sheet or where the edge of the paper is to ensure that the edges of the printed document are printed correctly. Similar to register or crop marks. The trim line is the final document size.

Safety Line:

The safety line or inner margin is the area in which to keep all important elements (text, logo, and/or content) within to prevent them from trimming off. All important elements should be at least 1/8" (.125) inside the edge of the trim line. The cutting of your printed piece is done in large stacks and may vary from the top and the bottom of the stack.

Framed Border:

All borders need to be 3/16" within the Trim Line as well as 1/8" extending out over the bleed line (Blue Frame).

Fold Line:

Templates also include fold marks that indicate where the fold will be. It is best to line up your panels with the folding marks to ensure the fold being in the correct spot on the panel in final production.

 




Accepted Files: .pdf, .tiff, .jpeg .psd (photoshop), .ai (illustrator), .eps (illustrator or photoshop), .indd (InDesign)

The recommended file is a PDF file but we will accept high resolution (300dpi) .tiff, .jpeg or the original source file from the following programs Photoshop (.psd), Illustrator (.ai or .eps), and InDesign (.indd).

If working in a program not mentioned files must be exported as a PDF.

EXAMPLE: PDF conversion instructions
 

Recommended Image Resolution: 300 dpi

File and/or Image resolution should be set at 300 dpi to ensure that the final document is not pixelated (fuzzy) when printed.

Enlarging an image will lower the resolution while reducing an image will increase the resolution. Enlarging an image in a layout is NOT recommended. Images that are less than 300 dpi could reproduce poorly looking fuzzy or pixelated.

Images from the internet are not recommended, as most images are only 72 dpi.

An unfavorable image cannot be resaved as a different type of file. For example, you cannot place a gif file in Photoshop and resave it as an EPS file. This does not change the compatibility of the file. If you have to use low-resolution images we will print only after you consent to the quality.

 

Required Color Mode: CMYK

CMKY (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) is a color system called Full Color Printing. Most commercial printers use this process. RBG (red, green, and blue) is the color process that your computer monitor uses to display color. It is important to convert your file to the CMYK color process before printing as it may cause a color shift durning the transition and give you unexpected results. All files submitted that are not CMYK, will be converted over before printing. If your project is color sensitive, it is recommended that you request a hard copy proof to ensure the end result is to your specifications.

EXAMPLE: RBG displays digitally and CMYK for print.
 

Font and Transparency:

We recommend that all transparencies be flattened before file submission. We also ask that you set your fonts to outlines prior to file submission. Not flattening or outlining fonts can cause some items to fall off during file preparation for printing. Any files submitted without these things being done may result in items dropping out from your artwork during the conversion process needed to prepare your artwork for printing.
