Magazines For Entertainment, Business, Fashion, And More
A magazine is any type of periodical literature that is published in either gloss or matte paper. Magazines are usually published monthly and feature a range of fictional, factual, and entertainment content. They are usually paid for by an annual sale, by a subscription, or by both.
Magazines can be classified according to theme, style, color, illustration, size, page design, copy writing, and printing techniques. Generally, all magazines are printed on glossy paper cover, but some have been published on plain paper cover. Most magazines have glossy paper cover, but a few magazines are published on a colored paper cover. The magazine pages are divided into separate sections, for example, sports, beauty, cooking, car, jewelry, gardening, health, home, adventure, and many more.
A magazine, apart from being a periodical, can be categorized according to theme. General interest periodicals are periodicals that are published for general viewing and do not provide too much information. News and sports magazines are specifically meant to be read by the general public and they convey information about the latest events and sports events. There are also magazines such as children’s magazine which helps parents and children in their everyday life.
There are various types of magazines, such as women’s magazine, beauty magazine, gardening magazine, cook magazine, and others. A weekly magazine is released every week and it has limited circulation. A monthly magazine is released monthly and has much more circulation. And there are special magazines that are published only for a limited time and they have a huge circulation.
All types of magazines are published for different printing processes, like ink jet, offset print, traditional print, graphic print, tint, and CMYK. There are some magazines that are published on non-glossy paper and they do not add any additional cost to the production. All the production costs are budgeted accordingly. So, whether it is a magazine or a newspaper, the production costs are budgeted and this includes the cost of paper, ink, labor, production, shipping, and other overhead costs.
Every magazine has its own circulation and advertising section. The circulation director keeps a track of the total circulation, so that the magazine can be published with profit. For better circulation, advertisements are displayed prominently. If the advertisement is not displayed prominently, there will be less traffic and the magazine will be published with lower sales. The revenue realized from sales is then used to fund further production of the magazine. Therefore, a magazine’s success depends on the revenue earned through the advertisements.
