Relax, we are there to help you
Proudly assisting designers
We love magazines and enjoy helping designers to achieve the result they had in mind. There is a lot of technology involved in creating a magazine and get it printed exact the way you wanted it. We love taking over the technical part, repetitive work and relieve you from the deadline stress. So you can focus on that what matters to you: designing! Weather you go exclusively to print or also need digital output we are there to release the burden.
Create beautifull articles
We take care of those tedious time consuming and/or repetitive tasks, so you can focus on the things that matter most to you.
Align your images
We will make sure that your images are all within your standard. Not only technically but also visually.
Your design might need some image alteration like enlarging the image to make it fit on the page, removal of elements on the image, making text readable. We've been there, done that and got the T-shirt.
The heart of our communication in on our pinboard. You can freely move around your pages to get the desired flow of the magazine.Need to add a late advertisement? No problem, just put in on the pinboard and reorganise the pages.
Renumbering and PDF creation
Just tell us your design is ready for output and we will pick your document up, renumber pages when needed and create print ready PDF files. We will show the result on the pinboard for your approval.
Delivery and communication with printer
We take care of the communication with the printer to make sure we are delivering the files in the way the printer wants them. Using the correct ICC profiles and file naming convention.To do so, you only need to approve the article/pages on the pinboard.
Many publishers require all kinds of digital output. This varies from images from the cover for online marketing, images of sample pages for the website, digital PDF editions for digital reading, printready PDF for digital print reproduction to XML output per article.We have the skills and knowledge to arrange this for you.

How we do it? Being proactive
We need to be able to access your designs. That can be simply with a shared dropbox or with systems like Elvis/Bynder/Woodwing.
The moment you share your design with us, and this can be still in your sketch phase we start monitoring it. We check if we can access all images. We check if the document might cause issues when going to print and inform you long before deadline. We make sure all your images are alligned and when you think its good to go we take care of getting it to the printer in the right way. When the deadline is passed we create all digital output, when needed, for you so you can focus on the next issue of your magazine.
