Here's a note from Kris Baumgartner, our Retail Operations Buyer:

Since our oversized magazine came out last year, we have had quite a few comments regarding the size not fitting in ordinary magazine slipcases.  We have a solution.  We have developed a custom slipcase designed to fit your Sport Aviation collection. They are covered in black linen and hold 12 magazines.  They will sell for $12.99. Now we want your opinion:

  1. Is this something that would interest you?
  2. Would you be willing to purchase them for $12.99?
                    

Thank you~

Kris

Let us know what you think - thanks!

No.  I buy generic ones from the Highsmith library supply people for $2 a piece.

I'd want to see them first, as in, if they looked really sharp. (Hint: old logo on the spine and cover.) A big plus would be if you offered identically-themed covers for the older "normal" sized mags as well.

But, I just have to ponder..... Paper? Hardcopy magazines? That's sooooooo 2005.  ;-)  I still prefer to read the hardcopy I receive each month, and only if I'm bored will I open the "advance" link to peruse the online version. I've got a nice big monitor at my desk, and the laptop's OK, but nothing beats being able to sit back and read a paper magazine. I don't yet have a kindle, but when they come out with a larger format one on which I can read a whole page of a magazine without having to zoom in to read, and that I can toss aside if the dog wants to play or the phone rings, I'm gettin' one.

Hope that doesn't hijack the thread.  So, let me reiterate: sure, I'll buy a good lookin' slipcover.

  Hey guys after i have read your mag a few times I try to pass it on to people that i want to get hooked on avation. I get 3 avation mags so i don,t usally save them. We need to promote our passions so i would urge other skypeople to do the same.  I think local highschools would take them if they are current. I have also left them in random mialboxes on my way to work.

Nope! I hardly even read the "ODD" size magazine any more.

I can't stand the oversized magazine. A better idea would be to go back to a standard size magazine and quit annoyijng the membership. I discontinued my subscription to Road & Track a few years ago for the same reason.

Do I want an oversized slipcover....NO.

I'll be a dissenting voice - I love the current size of the magazine.

 

However, in response to the OP, I never buy slipcovers so I have no interest in the product.
