LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. — While publishers around the world are restructuring and ceasing production of popular magazines, art and crafting publisher Stampington & Company has been developing new titles to add to their family of publications. In 2009, they will launch a total of eight new titles, which will account for 12 of the 75 issues they will produce during the year. These new publications showcase a broad range of popular trends in the art and crafting industry, including artistic journaling, quilting, “softies,” handmade aprons, and “green” crafting.
Beginning with the January 2009 releases, Stampington & Company will launch eight new titles during 2009. Newly added titles include: Stuffed: A Gathering of Softies (semi-annual, launched on January 1st), Art Journaling (semi-annual, launched on January 1st), Somerset In Love (special, launched on January 1st), apron*ology (annual, launched on February 1st), Somerset Apprentice (annual, launched on March 1st), Marie Antoinette (special, launched on April 1st), Art Quilting Studio (semi-annual, launching on June 1st), and GreenCraft Magazine (semi-annual, launching on August 1st).
“Because we publish enthusiast magazines, our readers are loyal to the hobbies and special interests we feature in our publications,” says Kellene Giloff, Stampington & Company’s President and Publisher. “Our company is small enough that we can quickly, and cost-effectively, launch a magazine to capture an emerging trend among enthusiastic artists and crafters. This support from our readers allows us to rely on single copy sales, with a higher cover price, more than advertising revenues, which are quickly diminishing in the publishing industry.”
