Dear CK Media employees, readers, and loyal contributors,
I am saddened to share the news that, due to difficult conditions in both the economy and the publishing market, CK Media has made the decision to cease publication of the print version of Digital Scrapbooking magazine after the February/March issue (on sale Jan 6, 2009).
I guess the key is to keep it DIGITAL and only make it available online. That would cut the production cost at least in half…no printing…no paper!
My very favorite digital scrapbooking magazine of all time was Scrapbook Answers magazine with a CD full of video tutorials and free kits. Sadly, it was discontinued in late 2006 even though it was a success and had lots of subscribers (like me!). The publishing house decided that it wasn’t profitable enough and they decided to switch their publishing focus to young males who like video games rather than crafty, digital women. Whatever.
