The first issue of The Industry Magazine has been printed through contacts at The Print Academy, and has been printed on:
- 115gsm silk stock for the inner pages
- 150gsm matte laminated stock for the cover
- perfect binding for a crisp, professional magazine aesthetic
I was given 8 copies of the magazine to allow for copies to be sent out to the relevant exhibitions I am partaking in as well as allowing for a copy for the LCA Blenheim Walk library, and for the Talia White Studios in Birmingham where one copy will be showcased.
In addition, copies ere also need for the final hand in and LCA end of year show, as well as keeping a copy for myself and donating one to my employer for colleagues to read on their lunch and rest breaks.
I am really happy with the print of the magazines, and has worked out much more cost effective in time and money in comparison so printing with Blurb which was my original plan – however due to the increased volume in how many I need printing and within the allotted time frame before hand in and the partaking exhibitions (Tambourine in Saltaire in particular with Bay Backner), it was more sensible to print these locally using my established connections in the industry.
