In general, saddle-stitched (stapled) and perfect bound booklets can be thrown into the recycling bin as is, including any staples or glued binding. The glue we use is a polyurethane reactive adhesive so it’s durable and recyclable.

Wire-O bound notebooks can also be recycled, but you should separate the wire from the paper pages before throwing them into your recycling bin.
The pages in your book are compostable, however, the spines use materials that are not. Please remove any staples, glue, or wire and throw them away, before putting pages into your compost pile. We also recommend shedding the pages before adding them to a home compost pile.

Commercial magazines typically use thin glossy paper, but you can choose which paper you want from our wide range of recycled paper stocks.
Creating your own magazine can be intimidating. Let’s break it down with these 7 simple steps:

  1. Pick your topic. It can be anything!
  2. Choose your magazine title. Make sure it matches your topic.
  3. Choose your cover article. Every magazine features a specific article on its cover.
  4. Create your body articles. This will be the content of your magazine.
  5. Find images. Magazines are often image heavy, so try to find or take lots of photos related to your topic.
  6. Design your magazine. It’s time to put everything together! Designs can be made in Adobe products like Illustrator or InDesign, Google Docs, Word, and other design and word processing software. Online templates are a great starting place.
  7. Upload your files and place your order with Greenerprinter. You get to choose your paper, binding method, finish, and quantity!

Now you’re ready to show off your beautiful custom printed magazines!
There are no requirements for how many pages a magazine needs. Most magazines feature between 30 and 120 pages.
