Magazine Design & Production

Let our 30 years of design experience work for you! Our magazine layout, design and production services deliver professional quality layout and design results.

We offer a cost-effective alternative to employing in-house designers, production staff and graphic artists. Because we offer a fixed price-per-page rate, you can budget and project your expenses. By outsourcing your design and layout functions to UDA, you reduce your overhead, payroll, insurance, taxes, office requirements and more. We save you time and money.

We will design and layout your magazine or publication, then deliver finished, digital artwork right to your printer. Don’t have a printer? We can provide the printing, too. Visit our portfolio page to see some of our work. We will also provide you with a page-turning digital flipbook version, complete with internal/external hyperlinks and more, ready to place on your website.

Copy Editing and Art Preparation
Send us your raw manuscript and image files, and our team of copy editors and graphic artists will prepare each input for production. UDA’s copy editors have the language expertise to handle all kinds of magazine content, from an advertorial in a medical publication to the lead feature article of a lifestyle magazine. Where required, we can also provide an editing service. The art-rendering team formats, relabels, and redraws the images you provide and ensures they meet the quality standards and specifications required.

Design and Page Make Up
Our team of designers handles both cover design and page layout. We are also expert at conceptualizing the cover based only on a theme or description from the publisher. Where art is provided, we work with those images to design the cover. In addition to laying out the regular sections of the magazine, we are equipped to handle multi-spread features and one-off advertorials that must have a different look and feel from the rest of the magazine. UDA can also prepare templates for individual features, departments, tables of contents, the masthead and the cover spine.

Ad Design and Preparation
UDA offers a design service for magazine advertisements, whether fractional or full page. We also prepare ads provided by the client using Enfocus Pitstop, a pre-flighting system, to ensure they meet the quality standards and technical specifications required. Each ad is then inserted into the magazine as per the ad map provided by the magazine editor.

Print and Electronic Production
We guarantee the quality of your print or electronic magazine through a rigorous pre-press checking process before dispatching it to the printer or preparing it for electronic publication. We can prepare any type of electronic deliverable, from an XML version to an HTML format suitable for online publication. We can also create a digital flip-page magazine for readers to view online or on a Flash-enabled mobile device.

Print and Electronic Delivery
UDA completes the magazine production cycle for you by offering print and electronic delivery services. Our content hosting and delivery platform, ContentStore, allows you to host and sell your magazine on the web. For the print product, our fulfillment team can look after all your subscription management needs.
