Yearbook 2011

Posted by Scott On March - 1 - 2011

This fabulous new SIP from People magazine is now on shelves. 

The cover price: $15.99. 

Like any good SIP, the cover stock is heavy, and UV coated.  The interior stock is fantastic too. 144 pages thick. No advertising. Odd, even the inside front and inside back covers are blank white. The production values are exceptional.

 If you’ve ever considered doing an SIP, this is one to take a lesson from on how to pour quality into a high priced magazine product.  Consumers will pay a premium for a quality “book.”
