Black and White Magazine Printing for Katsujinken Magazine

Katsujinken has been printing their black and white magazine printing project with Publishing Xpress for a couple of years now, and it has always been in color except this one specific issue. It was unique in itself, therefore was chosen for the spotlight.

Black and white print does not have to be dull or unattractive. This issue of Katsujinken magazine is a great example of black and white design and print done right.

Specs for This Magazine Printing Project

  • 8.5 x 11
  • Saddle-stitched
  • 40 pages+cover
  • 70# Gloss text for inside pages

Choosing glossy paper was the right choice for this edition of this black and white magazine printing project. Balancing the black and white with some gloss makes the magazine pop. Magazines are typically always glossy to begin with. The saddle-stitch binding is also ideal for magazines, mainly because of having the magazine sit flat on a surface for easy viewing. For this black and white magazine printing project specifically, due to its high text content, saddle stitch was perfect.

With black and white magazine printing, there is no worry about color matching problems, which may sometimes be an issue with digital print. Overall, black and white can be a unique option for printing and publishing your black and white magazine printing projects. You just have to make sure if images are involved that they are high resolution. You will not be disappointed at the final product. *Press proofs are always recommended*
