1 Print Deadline for 2 Issues

From one print run and therefore one print deadline, we produce the next two months’ issues ie. the files we supply the printer produces two months worth of magazines in one print run by interrupting the process to change the plates of the outer pages. The outer pages (the front 8 and back 8) are relevant per month while the centre pages are common for both months. This results in a quantity of month 1 delivered to Circulation A and a quantity for month 2 to Circulation B (A & B = total circulation per edition).

When the copies come back from the printers, Month 1 issue is delivered immediately while the Month 2 issues are held back and delivered approximately three weeks later.

In summary, we deliver monthly but each household receives a new copy every other month. This is commonly known in the publishing industry as “split distribution”.

How does this affect you?

  • If you are in the common pages your advert is the same for two months.
  • To reach Discover’s full circulation in any edition you need to book two consecutive months
  • As we deliver monthly, we quote and invoice monthly
