The new Canadian Business Franchise Directory Annual SIP (from Kenilworth Media Inc.) is set to hit newsstands on November 29th, 2010.  The cover price is $9.95

This year’s edition is printed in a new, larger, “European trim size” of 9  X 10 ¾.

For the first time ever, the word DIRECTORY takes the lead, with the branded logo playing a supporting role.

The cover features a border for the first time ever, as well as a bold cover slash tactic.

It also subscribes to Rule #21:  Use Numbers

The numbers help quantify the value proposition the SIP offers, and draws attention to the many benefits inside.

Look for special point of purchase promotions at Chapters/Indigo, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, and Presse Commerce.
