Fly Fusion

Posted by Scott On March - 25 - 2010

This issue marked a turning point in Fly Fusion’s evolution. The magazine up-graded to better cover stock, added perfect binding, re-positioned the logo far left to make room for a new drop down box device, and took the cover price up from $6.95 to $7.95…a 14% increase.

Backed by a strong retail promotion campaign in Canada, and with the support of Disticor and the wholesale community, this issue will be Fly Fusion’s best-selling issue ever.

It will outsell last year’s Winter issue by over 205% in units sold, and by 250% in revenue.

This cover just won an ACE AWARD (Award for Circulation Excellence) at the 2010 MagNet event for Best Retail Mid-Size Circulation category.
