WHAT IS A CUSTOM REPRINT?
A reprint is a reuse of a previously published article to be used as a stand-alone piece. Custom Reprints are a compelling way to market your company, organization, product, or service. Our high quality reprints can be used in a variety of ways including, in media/press kits, sales materials, direct mail, trade shows/conferences, and educational materials.

HOW IS COST DETERMINED?
Our reprint cost is based on the length of the article, the quantity ordered, if it is printed in color or black/white, and the amount of photography in the article. (Since we do not own the rights to the photography, there is a separate fee payable to the photographers.)
  • Order Size: The minimum order for reprints is 500 copies. (see photocopy permission for smaller quantities)
  • Paper: Our reprints are typically printed on 70# gloss-coated text. We have other paper options if needed. Stanadard print size is 8 X 10 3/4 for TIME. (Size may vary if the article came from a special issue.)
  • Color Options:
    • Four-Color: This is the most common process. The four-color process consists of four inks, black, cyan, magenta, and yellow. These colors make up the full color that is used in the magazine.
    • Black & White: These are produced using black ink only. If the article originally ran in color, we can transpose it into black and white.
WHAT ARE THE CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS?
  • We can add your Company/Organization logo or contact information.
  • We can add yellow highlighting to paragraphs or charts.
  • We can add arrows or circles surrounding specific content.
  • Advertisements can be included on the back cover.
  • We can remove any photos, illustrations or graphics. Content can be printed with text only.
  • We can also hole punch, shrink-wrap and ship to multiple locations.
WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE A PROOF?
Yes, TIME will email a proof (in PDF format) for your final approval before we complete the reprints. Once you approve the content and layout in the proof, we will send the reprint to the printers. The preliminary proof will be sent in a PDF format by e-mail.

WHAT IS THE TIMEFRAME FOR COMPLETION OF THE REPRINTS?
Our usual turnaround time is 2 weeks depending on the order. Rush orders are available for an additional charge.

HOW IS PAYMENT HANDLED?
An invoice is sent immediately after you receive the shipment of your final reprints.
