I have just realised that the spec size for the magazine I used as guidelines is an A5 magazine, just for personal preference, I would rather create a slightly larger sized page.
I measured an issue of Men’s Health I had (as this is more of a regular size) and so I will have my document size at 215 mm x 284 mm. Every other detail will remain the same!
- Colour Mode: CMYK
- Bleed: Minimum of 3 mm
- Margins: At least 5 mm
- Resolution: 300 dpi
