    I was looking around and was wondering. If I wanted a custom made magazine cover how would I go about doing that? I am new to prop making and and unfamiliar with how or who to talk to on this. Any Help would be appericated.

    Design the cover in image editting programs (photoshop, Paint.net, etc).
    Then you can take it printing places : not sure what the equivalent is, but in Australia there is a chain store called Officeworks - You can get stuff printed to size on any paper type.

    Basically what elro stated but if it is a replica of a real magazine (ie: Forbes, Newsweek, People, etc.) places like Kinkos or Office Depot won't print it because of copyright laws.

    In that case you will need to privately color laser print it on 32 lbs. brochure stock.

    Thank you both for your fast and detailed responses. I now have a general idea on where to go and what to do. Again thanks.
