The versatility of magazines

Magazines do not have to be reserved for glossy pages of super models, diets fads and relationship advice. They are a great way to get an idea out of your head and into something tangible, whether that be a portfolio you can give to potential employers, a catalogue of products you offer or recipe books. The list is endless.

With the option to either have your magazine stapled or square back PUR bound and with 3 different sizes to choose from, A4 magazine, A5 magazine or a 200mm x 200mm Square, there is a magazine style to suit every need.

Magazine print runs start from 20 copies or more. There are various finishing options to choose from which include; cover lamination, cover thickness, text page thickness and the type of binding. There is also a very helpful instant quoting tool so you can see how much your project would cost. Go to for more information.

Lets look at two examples where we were able to help make an idea a reality.

Pheka - Fresh simple cooking

Danielle du Toit started Pheka more than 12 years ago and it is all about fresh simple cooking! They offer private catering and their travelling cooking school is known for its good vibes and delicious food.

This recipe book was inspired by lockdown when life changed suddenly for everyone and her cooking school had to be temporarily closed. Danielle decided to post daily recipes on the Pheka facebook page to share some inspiration during this challenging time. Recipes had to be healthy, have simple ingredients and be really easy to follow. The response was amazing! I had many requests to turn my posts into a cookbook people could use in everyday life.
