What is the best paper for magazine printing?

We recommend using Adobe InDesign to design and layout your magazine for print. Click here for a tutorial on creating a print-ready file in InDesign!

Cheryl Saunders in Customer Service and Lynn Bilbrey in pre-press were both extremely helpful today as we dealt with some problems with the art files as well as a very time sensitive deadline for the delivery of this order. Thank you both very much!

We chose Printing Center USA primarily due to the cost effectiveness for such a small order (60 students, our first recital, single show etc). The quality of the printing and paper was top notch and their system is simple and easy to use. I would give them an A+ for Excellent Communication and Customer Service. My only concern (hence the lost star) is they called out a trim issue during their final proof and it said they had made an adjustment to avoid issues on the edges. However when the product arrive, their adjustment/trim line was showing as two thin colored bars along the top. All in all a fantastic experience and we will be back next season.

We first tried out Printing Center USA last year because of the phenomenal cost savings. We've continued using them because the quality was equal to a printer who charges us twice as much. We've printed 12 large orders with Printing Center USA, some with bulk mailings, and have been happy with every order. We also receive our printings quickly, usually faster than the originally estimated time. They are always in touch with us if they think there's an issue with our files, and friendly in helping us resolve any issues. We've seen an increase in business since we started doing more print and mail projects to promote our organization, and the great pricing has helped make that possible.

It's my first printed book! Cheryl helped me in getting the PDF file correct. The team also caught a chapter error as well. So thankful for a second set of eyes! My booked arrived and the quality is amazing. I wish PrintingCenterUSA had a single perfect bound book order for a printed proof. That is a huge disappointment. I had to buy 10 books the minimum order. After receiving my first printed version I saw several changes I needed to make prior to placing an order of 100. But now I have 10 copies of a book that needed lots of modifications to the design. But the qualify, feel and over all the perfect bound book set at 58 pages will suit my needs and I can't wait to get this book perfect for a larger print order.

Printing Center USA has become an invaluable asset to the continued development of my firm's brand. Founded in 1970, Graphic Encounter Fine Art, is a professional fine art consulting firm, headquartered in Aspen / Los Angeles. My firm works closely with notable Architectural firms throughout North America who engage GEFA to create Custom Art Designs for Hotels / Restaurant / Commercial / and Entertainment venues. Printing Center USA is able to migrate extremely detailed imagery of the projects that we have completed, to assist my creative department to further WOW our prestigious clientele. Their qualified personnel interfaces with my firm's associates, to produce color-faithful representations of world-famous venues that we have completed. Their entire process, from the start to the finish is quite unusual and very appreciated. My design clients often comment on how our Art Books aptly convey how successful my firm appears. That is branding at its' best. I consider Print Center USA a valued relationship. Ron Golbus President and Founder - GEFA I

I was in a rush to print some booklets for an upcoming important corporate event. We worked in the past with another company who requested many steps, quoted very high and all the process was a hassle, that is why I started to look out for another company until I found PrintingCenterUSA. Submitting my idea, paying online and having a customer service representative assigned for my project was something that I really liked. Kristin Wood was my point of contact and she really helped me going through all the process very fast and my order was delivered in less than a week! I definitely will work with them since the customer service and sales process is awesome! they earned a new corporate customer!

Staff and customer service were extremely patient with me! There were several rounds of fixing errors and resubmitting but I appreciated that they made a point to ensure that my final result would be perfect. A good tip if you are ordering booklets is to use Canva to get the borders exactly how you want them to be. Huge shoutout to Joshua Shapiro for helping me out and being super patient with me, they were super patient with my thousands of user errors.

I had an outstanding experience using Printing Center USA for printing 200 copies of our 32-page catalog. The process was seamless and timely from start to finish. Olivia Gray from the Marketing Department provided exceptional assistance, ensuring that our project went smoothly and addressing any concerns promptly. I am immensely grateful for her dedication and attention to detail. Moreover, the quality of the catalogs exceeded our expectations – they came out beautifully, with vibrant colors and crisp printing. Additionally, the pricing offered by Printing Center USA was incredibly affordable compared to other options we considered. Overall, I highly recommend Printing Center USA for any printing needs. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and affordability make them a top choice. I will definitely be utilizing their services for future projects.

There were many options available to allow us to bring the booklet down to our price point. Would we have perferred a thicker card stock? Sure, but not using the thickest brought the price down where we could afford it.
1 mon ago
Very good prices! And I LOVED that an actual person (customer representative) contacted me to ask me a couple of questions about my order, to make sure it was printed correctly. And they responded VERY promptly to my questions. The finished product was delivered on the expected date (I paid a little extra), and it's what I'd hoped for. I'm only disappointed that you don't do hardcover books. But when I need more softcover books, I will definitely use you again!
