Creative Scrapbooker’s Summer Issue Sizzles

Posted by Scott On April - 15 - 2016

Creative Scrapbooker’s Summer 2016 issue is set to hit newsstands on May 30th, 2016.  This high-quality quarterly publication (perfect bound, over-sized trim, 148 pages thick, retails for $11.99), published out of Calgary, Alberta, has been on a roll.  In 2015, newsstand sales were up 16%.  And the last 6 issues in a row have all posted gains!

Effective with the Spring 2016 issue, Creative Scrapbooker has entered the USA market, with a test at Barnes & Noble.  Scan data shows that after just 5 weeks on sale we have already sold over 40% of the copies distributed, with 7 more weeks to sell even more.
