Treefort Magazine is a new publication based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The print magazine works with brands and clients who need videography, photography, or copywriting. The clients partner with Treefort, working with their monthly shoots or hiring their team to style an exclusive shoot, and they then have high-quality content to use for blogs, video, social media, commercials, or in-store marketing—including a high-quality print magazine. Jeremy Gavin, our contact at Treefort, says this:
Our goal is to present a high-quality magazine to display our work. Its essential that our potential clients are impressed when we hand them the magazine and with each edition of Treefort Magazine that we have delivered they have been very impressed. We chose Bookmobile because we wanted someone who cared about the craft of our magazine as much as we did. We were so excited to see our vision come to life and Bookmobile delivered past our expectations
The Print Magazine
A print magazine that features fashion, beauty, and hospitality should have a high-end look, and Bookmobile’s high-quality printing service provides that. Each issue of Treefort Magazine is 9″ x 12″ (not many short-run printers can do a trim size this large), about 50 to 60 pages, with a color interior printed on our 100-lb. white uncoated stock. At 50 pages, the spine is .185″, which is wide enough to make it a square spine—and having a square spine versus a folded or stapled spine definitely adds a sense of value. Each issue is perfect bound with a color cover on 12-pt. C1S stock with matte lay-flat film lamination. The magazine also has faux printed end sheets—the inside front cover and first interior page is printed with a pattern of the Treefort logo (see below), as well as the last interior page and the inside back cover.
Printing at Bookmobile
Jeremy found us by searching for Minneapolis printers and exhibition catalogs—he wanted a local printer who could provide the same quality you’d seen with an art exhibition catalog. Our pricing fit their budget, so next we met to go over the materials available at Bookmobile, to make sure the final result was as high-end as possible. For each issue of Treefort, Jeremy and his team see a full set of print proofs. Color is critical in every issue, and they often make minor adjustments to the color in their files, after which they see another round of corrected proofs before giving Bookmobile a final approval to print and bind.
Why Bookmobile for a Print Magazine?
Bookmobile provides custom book manufacturing; no cookie-cutter templates or trim sizes to adhere to here. We produce everything in house, and we only produce books. So the collected know-how of our experienced staff goes into every book we produce. Our minimum run is 25 copies—we could not maintain our high-quality standards and breadth of options if we were only printing one copy of a book. From you, we require print-ready PDF files; our Support page will guide you on file prep and our color printing parameters. We provide paperback or hardcover binding, and black-and-white or color interiors (with the option to do a black-and-white interior with color inserts to save on cost). We can produce about any trim size up to 12″ square, landscape or portrait. We also provide many bells and whistles, like French flaps, foil stamping, and embossing or debossing.
