Let’s look at our 3 Tips when it comes to framing magazine covers.

  1. Get a clean copy –  Purcase additional copies you want to have some for a srap book. 
  2. Call the publisher for High Resolution PDF not a reprint that will cost you 200-500 dollars but a PDF will be vibrant and useable to frame.
  3. Try to get a copy of the magazine without an address label. (if you choose us to create your cover we usually can get them off)

At That’s Great News we can make you a professional, preserved, display copy of your magazine feature. We start we a clean original copy of the feature and infuse it directly on to the plaque type you select. The outside edges are beveled and trimmed to match the matting, giving the piece a picture frame effect. At the bottom is a custom engraving which can have any text you choose!

Were you featured on the cover of a magazine, have an article published, or mentioned in a write-up? Being spotlighted in a magazine, whether it’s a local zine or a national publication, is an exciting accomplishment and definitely something to talk about. Be sure to save and display that good press! Start Your Plaque
