Sidewalk Magazine – Redux 2: A Masterpiece in Skate Magazine Printing ????

Sidewalk Magazine has been a staple in the UK skateboarding scene for decades, providing a platform for skaters to share their stories, tricks, and culture. The second edition of their Redux series, Sidewalk Magazine – Redux 2, continues this tradition, offering a tactile experience that digital platforms simply can’t match. This case study explores the process of creating Redux 2, from the initial concept to the final printed product.

Redux 2 is a bi-annual compendium of the last four online issues of Sidewalk, but it offers something more than a simple collection of articles. It provides the reader with a tangible experience of flipping through and digesting content page by page. It’s all there in one fantastic publication – no need to scroll down menus or scramble through links to find what you’re looking for. You can annotate to remember, chop up to stick on your wall, or just keep it pristine as a limited edition book to cherish and read time and time again.

The Redux 2 project was brought to life by Ex Why Zed, a leading UK-based print company specialising in skate zine printing and zine printing. With their expertise in litho printing, they were able to create a product that not only looks great but also feels great in the hands of the reader.

The Winning Print Spec

The Redux 2 book measures 252x203mm, providing ample space for the content to breathe. The 4pp cover is printed onto 350gsm Silk with Matt Lamination to the outer, giving it a smooth, premium feel. The 180pp text is printed onto 170gsm Silk, ensuring high-quality images and text. The book is full colour print throughout, trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, making it a joy to flip through.

Ex Why Zed’s commitment to quality is evident in their other projects as well. For instance, their work on the PAQ Works x Offspring x Nike Air Max project, the Dirt Mag 20 Year Anniversary Book, and the Gin Annual 2018/2019 by Gin Foundry all showcase their ability to deliver top-notch print products. Their expertise extends to various formats, from the Monochrome Monday by Vero zine to the R U on TikTok by OK Cool book.

Ex Why Zed’s work in the skateboarding scene is also noteworthy. Their projects with Lost Art x Nike Skate Zine, Skate Pal Photo Zine, and Sidewalk Magazine Lobster Tales all demonstrate their understanding and appreciation of skate culture. They’ve also worked on the Factory Media Year Review Books, another testament to their versatility and skill in the print industry.

The Redux 2 project is a testament to the power of print in the digital age. It shows that there’s still a place for physical publications in our increasingly digital world. Whether you’re a skater looking for inspiration, a fan of the sport, or a print enthusiast, Redux 2 is a must-have. It’s more than just a magazine – it’s a piece of skateboarding history.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
