2012 Canadian Business Franchise Directory Debuts

Posted by Scott On September - 2 - 2011

Kenilworth Media’s annual Franchise Directory 2012 hits newsstands September 5th.  The issue retails for $9.95. This year’s issue uses many classic devices to help stand out on crowded stands:

  • White background
  • Border Box
  • Cover Slash
  • Big Numeric (1000)

Good use of color to help the eye travel down the cover to the other sell lines.  And the UPC code is even tucked away neatly in the lower righ corner.

The issue is a generous “European” trim size of 9  x 10 3/4, perfect bound, UV coated stock, and is 150 pages thick.

Look for promotions at Chapters/Indigo, Presse Commerce, Shoppers Drug Mart and Hudson News.
