THE DAY BY GRAPHITE STUDIO
The format of the magazine is A4, more precisely 213x297 mm, including the spine. The cover is printed on matt art paper 300g/m2 with glossy lamination. Content is printed on matt art paper 200g/m2.2.
The number of pages is optional, from a minimum of 24 pages to 72 pages or more. The number of pages affects the cost of production and processing, so for every order we always prepare an individual calculation. The number of pages is based on the scope of the content supplied by the client and on the agreement with the client.
The basic offer includes the preparation of the printed and electronic versions simultaneously. Of course you can opt for a printed version, or just publish TheDAY electronically
As with a regular magazine, TheDAY also contains photos and text.
No, the editorial staff reserves the right to refuse materials of poor quality, poor resolution, poor technical and aesthetic level (see requirements for photographs and images).
For electronic publishing, TheDAY uses the services of issuu.com. Your issue of TheDAY will become part of the issuu.com family magazines, a portal which is visited monthly by 70 million readers. You can opt for public release, which can be viewed on the issuu.com website by anyone, or for private release which can be viewed only by those readers who you allow access (send a link to).
Whether you opt for a public or non-public version of the electronic publishing, access statistics in the form of a weekly report will be available to you. You will have an overview of how many readers read your issue of TheDAY.
Photographs must be supplied at a resolution enabling high-quality printing, optimally 300 dpi. This means that photos in the A4 print size should have a minimum of 2000x3000 pixels; preferably 2480x3500 pixels. These requirements are met by the vast majority of professional digital cameras. Photos in significantly lower resolutions cannot be used. Photos must be submitted in JPEG, TIFF or RAW (CRW, NEF, ...). Vector graphics may be submitted in PS, EPS, PDF, AI, and CDR formats.
Not yet. We are working intensively to enable the use of video.
On average approx. 2-3 photos on one page. This results in total number of photos = 2.5 x number of pages.
The editorial content is prepared in close cooperation between you (the client), editor and graphic designer. A selection of wedding photos forms the basis. This is followed by the creation of texts, based on either your texts and notes, or based on an interview with you. Texts are sent to you on an ongoing basis and, of course, you have the right to require changes, propose modifications or amendments.
Processing of the magazine is a manual process, essentially no different from the processing of commercial magazines. Photos and texts are inserted into a prepared layout (page) by a graphic designer. This process is called typesetting and page layout. The page layout is then followed by proofreading.
If the preparation of the magazine seems too complex to you, and you do not want to deal with the text and content creation, we will send an editor to the event who will attend the whole wedding day. He will describe your wedding through the eyes of a man who has many years of experience working in the media, stylistic skills and linguistic education. A person who will write text which is entertaining, funny and touching, text which your friends and your family members will read with pleasure. This service is provided for a fee.
A professional photographer knows how to prepare images for further processing. If you have doubts about the technical aspects of the materials, please check the FAQ Section - Technical information.
A magazine is not better than an album - it's different. The magazine is more than an image, it's a story behind the photos. It's not a book either. It's in the true sense a STORY. The story of Your Day.
All advertising is placed in TheDAY magazine solely after agreement with the client. This does not apply to the imprint and contacts. Obviously, for example, advertisements of your company, your partners, wedding suppliers, or any other can be inserted in the magazine. It is possible to insert advertising from supplied materials or to commission the processing of advertisements to our graphic studio.
Of course, and more than that. You can enrich your story with stories from you childhood, memories of your parents or describe your sports activities. Did you meet at the foot of Mount Everest? Do you do amateur dramatics? Do you love dogs? All this, of course, should be in your magazine.
TheDAY is ready for multilingual versions. When creating a bilingual edition, both languages are usually graphically separated. You can also create separate Czech and foreign-language issues with the same content.
The design is always, to some extent, adapted to the specific needs and requirements of the customer. Fundamental requirements for design changes should first be discussed with editors of the magazine.
Yes, on request we will arrange distribution of the magazine including enveloping or labelling. You don't have to worry about anything, we will send copies of TheDAY wherever you specify, in the Czech Republic and abroad. This service is provided for a fee.
We are ready to meet most requirements. Contact us, we will gladly prepare an individual offer.
