About The Design:
This was our weekly/monthly bulletin before we discontinued it. We now do a quarterly magazine. We had the bulletin printed without the content, and then went back and ran it through the print to get the final product. We used gloss paper, but you may want to do some research on your in-house printer to make sure that it will print on gloss paper. I also don’t recommend using card stock paper. Doing so may jam you printer… such a headache. Enjoy.

    Can you give some details on the type of paper? We use card stock and it is quite the headache. Even with our new printer (Savin 3503).

    Also, why did you guys decide to discontinue it? We do something very similar to this monthly, but if there is a more efficient way like the quarterly magazine, I would be very interested to hear about it!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Tadd. I have to agree with you on the card stock. Such a head ache. We ordered our preprinted bulletins with 70 or 100lb gloss paper from nextdayflyers.

    As far as discontinuing it.. There was a few reasons. The number 1 reason was because we did a church wide survey and found that a majority of our folk did not find the bulletin helpful for upcoming events. We later decided to do a quarterly magazine because we felt like people do like a physical form of communication, but knew a weekly or monthly bulletin was not as effective in the past. Quarterly magazines also allowed us to include more than just upcoming events or announcements.

      Thank you for the response! I think if we did a survey we would get a similar reaction. I have one more question. What do you guys do when the dates of events change after you have printed the magazine? Or what if you have an event come up that you guys would like to do, but you have already printed the magazine?
