With that being said, every year we pay attention to the upcoming publishing trends to stay ahead of the consumers needs to create a visually appealing magazine that encourages readers to buy, or pickup and read.
Here are a few magazine publishing trends for 2023.
- Touch. Graphic designers love to see and touch their magazines and trust me the quality of the paper, the viscosity of the ink, all matter for a quality product.
- Coating. The quality of the coating will give any publication the 5 star finishing touch. The aqueous coating radiates a velvety finish that graphic designers love.
- Foils. Yes, they are back and in a big way! Foils give an amazing feel to an embossed logo, create contrast and adds flash and glitz to the finer details.
- Binding. Not all magazines need to be perfect bound. Binding does give a sleeker more polished look and feel but for 2023, prefect bound is not a necessity according to Hemlock.com
