Property Forecast

Posted by Scott On November - 17 - 2010

Canadian Real Estate magazine’s January 2011 issue will be hitting newsstand on December 7th 2010.  The cover price is $7.99.

The Property Forecast issue is typically the best-selling cover of the year.

After a rigorous cover consultation process, we chose to make a number of changes for the 2011 edition:

  1. Crisp white background
  2. Big type treatment
  3. De-clutter Logo area
  4. Re-Organize UPC code treatment (price, web site URL) in lower right corner
  5. Remove sky bar
  6. Simplify number of hooks
  7. Eliminate multiple starbursts
  8. Create border
  9. Add profile cut-in device
  10. Use of gold to signal “value”

Look for special point of purchase promotions at Chapters/Indigo, Shoppers Drug Mart, and HDS Airport locations.
