When choosing a publishing partner, it’s important to consider their degree of expertise to ensure you receive the level of quality print materials you and your clients deserve.

What to Expect When you Partner with Maracle to Publish your Magazine or Journal

High Quality, Full-Colour Printing

We pride ourselves on colour management to ensure your photos and images achieve a true colour match. Our high quality, full-colour printing allows you to create a visually stunning publication that successfully conveys a message that resonates with your readers.

In-House, Professional Binding

In-house professional binding services set us apart from the competition. Many traditional printing houses have to send out your printed sheets to be bound. Coordinating with additional vendors and sending materials offsite adds additional time and cost.

At Maracle, we’re able to save you both time and money by completing your publication in-house.

Attention to Detail and Finishes

Detail oriented with an eye for finishes, we deliver you the finest, professionally published magazines and journals. Each project undergoes quality control that meets our high standards.

  • Full-colour: True colour match is essential for achieving beautiful photos and images.

  • Resolution: High resolution is critical to ensuring your images and photos maintain a sharp, crispness.

  • Margins and Edges: We pay close attention to margins and edges during the layout process to ensure that there is enough bleed to prevent your content from being cut-off.

 

“Professional, courteous and helpful. Maracle has certainly played a part in my success.”

Choosing the Best Type of Binding for Your Magazine or Journal: Saddle Stitching and Perfect Binding Explained

Saddle Stitching and Perfect Binding are two of the most common types of binding used to bind magazine and journal publications.

Below, we review the differences between these two types of binding:

Saddle Stitching

Page layout for saddle stitching is done in multiples of four. This type of binding is best for binding eight pages or more, we can help you determine how best to ensure your publication lies flat. The distinctive spine of saddle stitching features two staples.

Perfect Binding

Hot glue is used to bind your pages in perfect binding. This type of binding allows you to publish a magazine with a square spine, giving you the ability to print directly on the spine. This type of binding works well for publications with a spine width as slim as ⅛” to as large as 2 ½”.

Two binding methods, one end result in a professionally published magazine or journal that you can be proud to deliver to your clients and customers.
