Digital Magazines vs. Print Magazines

While there are advantages and disadvantages of both print and digital formats, there are clear and distinct differences that should be considered when deciding which is the best for you and your company.


Ease of Distribution

One very clear factor is that distribution is much easier with digital magazines - all you need to do is share the link of your publication, and in an instant, all your customers will have access (distribute to as many people as you’d like - at no extra cost).

This differs greatly from the distribution of print magazines, which requires more effort and resources. Not to mention the extra cost - the more magazines you want to distribute, the higher the price! 


Another great benefit of using digital magazines instead of print is the fact that digital magazines are hosted online, meaning that no paper is used, or goes to waste. Digital is therefore an extremely sustainable option. Nowadays, it’s important that we try to ensure that we use as little paper as possible, and print magazines, unfortunately, don't fit this quota.

Endless Interactive Features

Although print magazines have their perks, they don’t offer half as much as digital magazines do in terms of interactivity. An online magazine can incorporate a whole host of online features  and this modern form of communication is becoming more and more sought after.
