Creative Scrapbooker on a Roll in USA

Posted by Scott On April - 10 - 2019

The Summer 2019 issue of Creative Scrapbooker is set to hit newsstands on May 27th, 2019.

This beautiful Canadian magazine is always 148 pages thick, and packed with practical how-to-advice.

Co-Owners Jackie Ludlage and Katharina Doyle decided back in 2016 that it was time for the USA to see what a great Canadian magazine could deliver.  The name was changed from Canadian Scrapbooker to Creative Scrapbooker.  Results are impressive:

  • In 2016 we started with a test group of Barnes & Noble and JoeAnne’s stores, and sold thru at an impressive 52% sell-thru.
  • In 2017 we expanded into more Barnes & Noble and Joe Anne’s and we raised our cover price from $11.99 to $12.99.  Sales were up 64% and revenue was up 87% from 2016.
  • In 2018 we sales were up another 5%.
  • In 2019 we have expanded into Michael’s stores in the USA.

An impressive roll in the USA for this fabulous Canadian gem!
