In the table below, we have compared all three digital formats from different aspects in an unbiased manner.
Please note, we do not recommend reusing the same layout of your magazine created for print. All methods are compared as if you are creating your magazine layout specifically for the method. Reusing print layout is an ineffective practice that will not yield any positive long-term results. If you have to publish your print layout, just use the good-old PDF itself.
