Submitting Layouts for Publication
If you are looking for websites of the magazines to send your layouts then this article is for you. I have made a list of the magazines websites to send your layouts.
There also a few tips in helping complete this task.
This is the fastest and cheapest way to submit your layout. Scan the layout into your computer and send as attachments by email. If you are chosen to be published then they will ask for the original copy. Check the instructions most of the magazines prefer a certain size and the instructions are usually listed on the sites.
Mailing the Layout
Again never mail the original layout. If taking photos of your layout then make sure you take them out of the page protector or you will get a glare and not be able to see the layout. Send the pictures to the magazine you choose to try to get published in.
By taking a colored copy of the layout you can then mail the colored copy off to the magazines to get published.
Here is a list of Websites available for sending your layouts in to be published.
Good Luck to everyone who sends their layouts into to be published. I have a friend who has a few pages published in magazines.
