We have the publishing thing nailed down – it’s what we do every day. By using our expertise, clients are able to create outstanding custom content with minimal impact to their own workload. Below is a skeleton workflow for producing an issue.

Project scope

Our first goal is to determine the scope of the job. Is this a new title, re-brand or an existing in-market publication? Is newsstand a priority? Will it be a bilingual magazine? What is the distribution goal?

 

Production planning 

Based on the outcomes of the project scope, we will create a
plan to cover all aspects of the publication, which means you
won't waste time outsourcing any
of the tasks.

Advertising sales

A custom magazine not only expands your customer base, it
can also generate revenue from advertising. We offer services
for media sales for both online
and print.

Production timing 

This is the engine of a successful magazine. Deadlines and scheduling. But don't worry,
we take care of the
 work-flow planning ... and we love it. 


 

Pagination 

A fancy word for workflow and layout planning, the pagination holds the team together and outlines the magazine flow from beginning to end.

Editorial 

FAP can manage all editorial assignments, storyboarding and content development from A to Z. Great editorial makes for great magazines.

Review & sign-off 

This is the fun part ... you get to see the fruits of our labour and your brand in lights!

 

 

Press production 

FAP can manage the connection to the printers, including colour and press checks, bindery and distribution planning.
 


 

Distribution  

Here's the fun part. Getting it out to the masses. Direct mail via Canada Post, bulk circulation, event distribution. We can help with logistics and data management support. 

Digital & Mobile Solutions

Magazines are not just paper products. Digital magazines are the future and we have our finger on the pulse with the best means to create and distribute. 

Debriefing (production & editorial) 

We meet with our client at the completion of the issue to discuss content, process, feedback and to identify best practices.
