Making an online magazine

How to create an online magazine

With Jilster's online makerspace, you can create your own online magazine, either independently or together. When your magazine is ready, you can share it online as a browsable version. You can place your magazine on your website or share it via email, social media and WhatsApp. An online magazine and the use of the makerspace is free of charge.

If you prefer to work with an alternative programme such as Word or InDesign, you can upload it as a PDF and place it in the magazine.


Create and print an online magazine

You decide what your magazine will look like. Your magazine can be printed in multiple versions. You can also create an online magazine and share it online. So, in addition to creating an online magazine, you can also choose to have your magazine printed. This can be done from as little as one copy. You can even create two different versions of your magazine: one version especially for online use, and one version for printing. For example, to give away as a gift.

Online version of a personal magazine

You can create a personal magazine together with family members, friends or colleagues as a birthday gift or as a wedding present for the bride and groom. Or for the birthday boy or girl. Sometimes it can be too expensive to give a printed magazine to everyone who has contributed - or even all the guests at the party. Then it is nice to be able to send the digital version of the magazine to everyone by e-mail for free. This way, everyone can leaf through the magazine gift online at home and reminisce.

Online company brochure

If you need an online catalogue for your company, you want to show potential customers what you have to offer quickly and easily. You can then create an online brochure which you can send directly to your customers as an online magazine free of charge or display on the website.

Submit your project digitally

You can create an assignment for school and submit it digitally and physically to your teacher. You create your project online in the makerspace. Once you have finished designing your workpiece and it looks good, you can send your teacher a link so that he can view your magazine online. You can also order a 72 dpi (low resolution) pdf of your magazine to send to the teacher.
