It’s no secret that print media’s ship is sinking. The sales of print media are dropping continuously. Yet…. yet it would take a lot of time for them to go down for good. So until they are here, we designers need to be perfect in designing magazine print ads.

Most of these magazine print ads are double-paged ones. That means that the designers have taken full advantage of magazine’s layout and binding properties. This is the reason we sharing this post. Otherwise, we already have shared some superb print ads.

Some of these magazine print ads require special kind of printing presses and willingness of the magazine. Those ads include pop-up ads such as bubble gum ad.

You are free to do anything with the design though. No special printing press is required for printing a design.
