Design and print

Creative print and digital design

Stronger relationships with members and better returns on your investment – that’s what our high quality print and digital
design services are all about.

Inspired membership magazine design

By understanding your strategy and interrogating the market research and demographics, we design magazines that really resonate. Maybe you want to shift perceptions of your organisation’s role? Let’s think about the colours, typography and imagery that communicate your status most compellingly. Or perhaps boosting revenue from training courses is a priority? Let’s discuss the design choices that make it easy for readers to see the benefits and take action. Our designers don’t rest on their laurels. They evaluate how they’re doing, evolve your designs when things change and stay up-to-date with the latest business and consumer magazine design trends.

Digital design

Because your members are ready to hear your message anywhere, anytime, we’re also experts in designing and building content for all manner of digital mediums and devices. Our designers ensure your organisation’s identity is communicated professionally and consistently across all channels, whether that’s digital magazines and newsletters, apps or jobs boards.

Expertly-managed magazine production

We want to make producing your magazine as easy and cost-effective as possible. With our specialist knowledge of binding, paper types, mailing, fulfilment and postage solutions, we offer recommendations if you’re relaunching your magazine, and improvements if you’re sticking with your current format. All our clients have a dedicated production contact who co-ordinates everything from flat plans, copy flow and proofs, to mailing data, carrier sheets and polythene. We are mailing fulfilment experts and can fully manage all the warehousing, logistics, inserts, polythene ordering and printing, and final distribution for your titles. We also know all about things like database management, subscription marketing, newsstand sales, magazine circulation development and pre-audit management.

Cutting your membership magazine printing costs

We print more than 3.5 million magazines a year which gives us the scale, knowledge and long-term relationships with printers and mailing houses that secure very competitive rates. All our membership magazine clients benefit from our buying power and transparent pricing. We help you get the best from your budget, often doing things like upgrade the paper stock, or provide new tactile cover finishes at little or no cost to you.

Sustainable membership magazine publishing

We can source Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)-accredited papers. Our print partners meet the latest environmental and quality control best practices, such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certifications. We can also use non-toxic vegetable-based inks, chlorine-free paper and recycled or part-recycled papers. Here’s our environmental and sustainable business policy here [link to policy]. Share yours and we’ll do our best to meet it.
