I remember taking study breaks at the public library when I was in middle school to read through the old bound copies of Seventeen magazine from the 1970s and 1980s that the main branch kept. Each year was bound into a green hardcover book, and I could have spent hours procrastinating that way.
Thankfully, there is a company called Denver Bookbinding that will actually bind the magazines you’ve saved (especially some of those now defunct ones whose issues you just can’t bear to part with) in just about any color of book you want. While it might not be right for the casual collector, if you are looking for ways to keep an archive of your favorite magazines, it’s a solid option.
If you’re looking to save specific ideas, consider creating tear sheets, scanning pages, or looking for the tips online and adding them to a dedicated Pinterest board. Get more storage tips for everything in your house.
