Magazine printing -Your Short to medium run Magazine Printing of Choice.
Experience is what matters when your are choosing a new printer for your
next magazine printing. We know this is your single most expensive aspect
of your magazine production. Deal with a family run company that cares.
You want a great price, but without quality it just won't cut it!

Every step in our magazine production is greared towards efficiency and quality.
Our digital proofs and folded imposition proofs are just a small example
of what Tri-Tech provides to make your next magazine printing easy.

Tri-Tech (Canada) Inc has the experience and expertise you demand in a magazine printer.

Tri-Tech's beginnings date back to the mid 70's. (1974)
From our early days of converting artboards into film for stripping.
Through to our expansion in Computerized typesetting in 1980 with the then state of the art
Computerized Compugraphic Typesetting.

Years later we were one of the first imaging onto our first film imagesetter.
The stepping stone of our pre-press department was a Heidelberg Lino 330.
We have always bought the best of available equipment. This is where quality starts.
Our services back then covered the entire spectrum from Paste-up
throug to film stripping, proofing and print production.

All of this old equipment is long gone. Everything is now produced using CTP.
Direct to Plate as it is well known today. Our years of experience with pre-press in years past helps our future.
Our Heidelberg platesetter is configured for our Komori Press as the plates are punched
to our Komori press pin specs at the time of imaging and not after..
This ensures the best possible registration when the plates are later loaded on press.
The human hand punching plates offline, can't possibly do this as accurately.
This is where automation is the key to better pricing and better quality.

Expanding and growing your magazine

- Saddle Stitched S/C or Perfect bound formats?
One of the biggest fears we have heard from magazine publishers
is the changing from saddle stitched S/c (Self Cover) to a perfect bound magazine,
once your page count exceeds 96 pages.
(after 96 pages we recommend perfect bound, at 96 it is your option)
Going to a Perfect Bound prior to reaching 96 pages
will only add to your cost and make the chances of you growing your
magazine that much more difficult. Magazines that stand the test of time
are magazines that make money with at least 40-50% ad content.
Your magazine should grow or srink in direct relation to the number of ads sold!

Make the jump to Perfect Bound, when the advertising demands it with paid advertising!

When you are ready to make the jump there is nothing you need to alter on your end
other than create a file for the spine. Guiding you through that process is very simple.
We look after adjusting the spine width and doing the calculations required for a perfect spine!.
Where others simply go by previous magazine spine widths.
At Tri-Tech we physically measure the stock on our floor.
This we have found is the most accurate way.
The results confirm it with spines that are perfect!
So, if you are looking to expand your magazine and making the jump to a perfect bound format.
Relax, and Develop a comfort level with Tri-Tech for your next
Saddle Stitched or Perfect Bound magazines.

Having your magazine printed at Tri-Tech really is this easy.
It all starts with
7 simple steps.

or credit card information. Visa or Mastercard.

4)Color accurate Digital proofs, and a Booked Proof
will be shipped to you for approval.

The digital proofs for color and the booked proof
to verify layout and crossovers.
Our clients have commented they are better than
most in the industry. They are always color adjusted
by our own inhouse designed color correction chart.

5)Proofs are then sent back to Tri-Tech with changes indicated. This now becomes our on press and bindery guide.

6)Changes will then be proofed through e-mail with our electronic proofs. These proofs contain the identical information
that will be sent to our plate setter. The resolution will be
adjusted to 150dpi and converted to RGB to ensure rapid communication and ease of use. What good is an electronic proof if it ties up your e-mail.
Our proofs are in a Jpeg format that can be viewed
right in your e-mail inbox. How is that for ease and comfort?
Remote printouts are a snap as well.

from start to finish. Each and every member of our staff
will know about your magazine and where it is

For new publication start-ups please come in for a visit and we'll go over proper layout and file preparation - no charge. As well we can provide helpful insite on what can make your Publication a success. This service is only beneficial once you have your concept in hand and are ready to get starting with the actual production towards printing. To determine your stock and finishing of your magazine keep in mind many of the magazines you will see on a news stand are running 100,000+ copies. Most start-ups are in the 1-5,000 range. It's better to design a magazine that can show a profit than to design a magazine like your competition and not be around 2 issues from now. Your magazine will have a better look and feel running sheetfed with better quality stock than your higher production run competition. Use this as your spring board to success by ensuring the Ads look great and the photos going into your publications are sharp and crisp!

Your run length and page count should be determined by your Ad revenue and not the other way around. The most common mistake of new publication launches is rushing to a perfect bound format before 96 pages. As well printing far too many copies just to get their cost per magazine as low as possible. Your total printing cost versus Ad revenue should be a more important factor. 40-50% ratio of Ad to editorial content is the figure you should strive for. Anything less your magazine will have a huge obsticle to climb.

This makes our life easier, and your publication profitable. There are formulas for success. Printing is just a small portion of that entire package.

As an added bonus for Magazines being printed by Tri-Tech.
We will provide layout sheets for your various magazines indicating folio numbers to optimize placing of colour and B/w pages. This alone could save you Thousands over the course of a year by mixing colour and B/w pages in the most efficient manner.
