Literary Journal Industry Standards
PrintNinja recommends keeping the following guidelines in mind when you design a literary journal.
Literary journals and literary magazines are collections of writing from several different authors, all housed in one volume. They are often anthologies of short stories, excerpts of longer pieces, poetry, criticism, essays, or author profiles of new writers. While they don’t have a standard size, most resemble magazines and are put out in a semi-regular cycle. They are often printed on uncoated paper to stand apart from their glossy superficial cousins.
Just because these journals are meant to appeal to your mind doesn’t mean they shouldn’t also appeal to your eye. Modern journals mix it up with full color artwork, hard cover binding, and unique sizes. Some even add specialty options like foil stamping or embossing/debossing. No matter what you want your literary journal or magazine, PrintNinja can help you print a product that does the art inside justice.
