Tips For Creating A Custom Car Magazine Cover As A Gift


There’s nothing better than a Sunday drive in your classic hot rod, or German sports car. Car enthusiasts are as unique as the rides they work so hard on to keep clean — and there’s always a story behind each one! What sits in the garage is usually a bunch of tools, cleaning supplies, and of course, car show trophies. But one thing is sometimes missing — and that’s the car on the cover of a magazine! One of the best car enthusiast gifts you can give is the recognition he or she so rightfully deserves! See how you can create a custom car-themed magazine cover below.


Feature The Ride

In creating this gift for the car enthusiast, the most important thing about the magazine cover is going to be the car itself. Consider a ¾ angle of the car, making sure to fit it into the canvas. Also, it should be a clear photo with negative space available on every side, so that the headlines don’t get in the way of that shiny paint. If you have a photo of the driver with the car, even better! There’s nothing better than showing off the ride and the driver in one.


Whether this car is a racetrack junkie or a show car garage queen, it’s always noteworthy to point out what makes the car so unique. If it’s won a few car shows, definitely make note of these trophies! Maybe this ride is a hawk on the track, and posted a best lap time — this is also something to note, especially since it was also due to the skills of the person behind the wheel! Whether it’s clean enough to eat off of or has a faster engine than an airplane, it’s certainly worth noting.

A Custom Printing

Sometimes, the idea of your car on a magazine cover is too awesome of an idea to keep limited to just one version. Luckily, you can create this personalized car magazine cover and turn it into almost anything — from a blown up poster for the garage, to custom printed t-shirts! Although if you’re going for traditional magazine sizing, you can also have it placed into a nice frame, which can be displayed almost anywhere!
