⚽ Stiles Magazine: A Celebration of Independent Football Culture

Stiles Magazine is not just a publication; it’s a celebration of independent football culture. This unique magazine is a testament to the power of print, showcasing the vibrant world of football through the lens of art and design. At Ex Why Zed, we had the privilege of bringing this vision to life, demonstrating our expertise in football magazine printing.

The Story Behind Stiles Magazine


STILES is an independent football culture magazine produced by Julian Roberts which documents the stories, characters and lifestyle surrounding the game and its fans. Through original writing and photography, STILES explores both sides of the turnstile; from the relationship between popular culture, football and life, to just why it is that people love the beautiful game.


The magazine’s creators turned to Ex Why Zed for our expertise in creative industry printing. With our state-of-the-art HP Indigo Printer, we were able to bring their vision to life, producing a magazine that not only tells a story but also stands as a piece of art in its own right.

A Winning Printing Process

The magazine measures 260x215mm, a size that allows for a comfortable reading experience while also providing ample space for the stunning visuals. The 4-page cover is printed onto 300gsm Silk and finished with a matt lamination to the outer, giving it a smooth, luxurious feel. The inside pages, 136 in total, are printed onto 130gsm Gloss, ensuring high-quality image reproduction and easy readability.

The entire magazine printing is in full colour, allowing the artwork and photography to truly shine. Once printed, the pages are trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, resulting in a professional, high-quality publication.

Connecting with the Football Community

Stiles Magazine has been well received by the football community, with readers praising its unique approach to football culture. The magazine has been featured on various platforms.

The magazine’s success is a testament to the power of print in the digital age. Despite the prevalence of online content, there’s still something special about holding a physical printed magazine, especially one as beautifully designed and printed as Stiles Magazine.

A Championship Defining Success

At Ex Why Zed, we’re proud to have been part of the Stiles Magazine journey. This project allowed us to showcase our expertise in football magazine printing, producing a publication that truly stands out. We look forward to continuing to support independent publishers like Stiles Magazine, helping them bring their visions to life through high-quality print.

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.
