    No doubt it's not a priority (nor should it be I think for a start-up) but I wondered that given the popularity of Apple tablets and e-readers and the grasp that technology now has on traditionally printed media going even more digital, I would think it's wiser to offer an online subscription, as myriad magazines and periodicals do, alongside printed copy. Lowers production and back-office costs: other than sourcing, editing and compiling material, the process is highly automated and works a treat with e-gateways.

You can always buy the magazine online of course, but a limited number of issue 2 will be available for sale in Aperture as well!!

    Aperture is an analog photography and variety store where you can check out their photo gallery, buy film or vintage cameras, drink a cup of coffee or just sit down and chill!! Check out their website here!

    If maiha decides not to release on a website at least some of the content to whet our appetites to buy then I think it a mistake but it is his business. However I look forward a report from a buyer who might be able to do the same job.

    Maybe someone can do a short article. I have no doubt that it is legit and well intentioned but these two qualities are not enough by themselves to sell a new product IMHO

    Good luck with your venture. I highly suggest you offer a PDF sample issue as a promotional tool--if the content is good, it'll pay you back many times over. It's unlikely I'd buy a copy without seeing a sample issue, and many others will feel the same way.

    I received issue#1 a few days ago.

    I found to be good...
    About 50+ pages with lots of color and black/white pictures to look at and interesting Polaroid section. Not a lot of ads (could be good, could be bad).

    I found to be not so good...
    Print/paper quality is so, so and page 43 has a long crease through Ariana and Suzi's images. I think quality control could be improved if you care to bring it up with Magcloud.

    All in all I'm satisfied. Hopefully you can implement on some of the above suggestions.

    Best of luck.

    ghostcount:

    That is rather upsetting. This is the first time someone has complained about the print quality, also, the few copies I have at home also do not have any crease through the photos. Rest assured we will bring up this issue to MagCloud.

    Also, This was the first issue so things were a bit rocky. But we hope to improve more as we get going!

    Thank you. We always look forward to new contributions!

    I looked at the site and would like to tell you my brainwaves.

    1) preview is only showing the first few pages, text is not readable (to small). So no index. and only 2 pages with polaroids showns.
    based on this I cannot make a conclusion if it is interested or not.
    2) price of sending the item to europe is about 13.4 dollar, which is almost the same price as the magazine....

    I am working in the IT but prefer paper, no computer screen!
    A book reads much nicer than a screen.

    Ron, what a great riposte to all the pooh-poohers out there!

    Best of luck to Maliha!
