Let’s look more closely at magazine ads today. You can think of it as a more targeted, but more expensive, option to newspaper ads. Magazine advertising not only lets you reach highly focused audiences because you can choose magazines that focus on topics that interest your audience, but it also tends to get readers more involved, which means that this type of advertising is getting more attention.

Also, don’t forget that better print quality is better for better graphic design, which is great for advertising high-end goods. Lastly, magazines last much longer than newspapers, which people usually throw away the same day they buy them. But long wait times mean that you have to make plans weeks or months ahead of time. The longer lead time also makes it more likely that your clever ads will be overshadowed by events and is bad for refunds.

Today, a single person sees about 3,000 creative ads every day, and we are becoming more and more immune to advertising, so companies must find new ways to get people’s attention. If you have trouble coming up with new ideas for good ads, this collection of 21 Creative Double Page Magazine Ads should help you a lot.

Repromed: Don’t Waste Your Sperm

Jamshop has made a funny direct mail piece to go with their national print and online campaign to find sperm donors for Repromed, Australia’s top infertility clinic. Potential candidates got the famous men’s magazine FHM, only to find that some of the pages were stuck together. Men were enticed to pull the sticky pages apart, where they found a full-page picture of a pretty underwear model and a message. Men were put to the test on an interactive website that linked back to Repromed to see if they were “good enough” to become sperm donors. (Jam shop, in Adelaide, Australia, is an ad agency.)
