    Thanks for the interest. We offer the print subscription for $59 for 52 issues. With the print subscription, you get access to an electronic version on our website. Order online by clicking the Subscribe button in the upper left corner. Print copies will start arriving in 4-6 weeks. You can download the current Electronic Version the next day. Log In at the very top of the home page (above the logo), then scroll down the left navigational tabs to ABOUT US. Click on Current Digital Edition. We put up a new issue each Friday. Problems gaining access can be addressed to webmaster@chronofhorse.com.

    We are looking at using a vendor with a page flipping device to email you a link when the new issue goes up. What do you think?

    http://www.bluetoad.com/publication?i=12078.

    FYI, if we do it. all the ads will be linked to the advertiser's URL.

    Thank you for your thoughts!

    Robert,

    Thank you so much for replying. I am a subscriber, but was trying to find out if they ever run any subscription specials.

    I have had a few people ask me about subscribing, but times are tight, and they were just wondering if the subscriptions ever went on "sale".

    Edited to add: We have used the "page flipping" catalog pages for our printed magazine in the past. I find that that particular software is slow and cumbersome, even on a high speed internet connection... the magazine seems to be easier to puruse in just a PDF format. The page flipping is nice, but more often was a pain, and slow.

    Just my two cents!

    Thanks again for replying!!!

    Thanks for the info on the page flipping device. Were your problems with bluetoad.com specifically? They do offer security features that a simple PDF won't offer.

    We don't offer specials on the print. To be honest, for a weekly magazine, it's about as inexpensive as I can get it. You might not know, but my paper cost grew 53% last year! And postal grew 12%. Postal's going up another 5% in May! Yikes! The woes of publishers are well known, I suppose. It's the same for you, too, I know. It may not make it any easier to afford, but to subscribe to some weeklies (People, Newsweek, even The Blood-Horse and The Thoroughbred Times) is well over $100 for the year. I may find a far more affordable way to offer a deal through the electronic version.

    What would you feel is a fair price to pay for 52 weeky electronic issues?

    I think the Chronicle Price is extremely reasonable, actually. But that is the opinion of a working adult....

    My thoughts were more for the young ladies at our barn that are working students. While the price is extremely fair, and extremely reasonable, they just can't hack it sometimes.... (which is why it makes a good gift for us to give them though!).

    An online only subscription would probably be the best option for that crowd anyway!

    I work for the group that produces Florida Horse, Horse Capital, and Wire to Wire. Not really nationally recognized magazines, but pretty nice. Would love to talk with you some more offline sometime about publishing issues!!

    Default Reinstating online only subscription?

    I thought the bluetoad.com display worked great. Any chance you'll reinstate the online-only option?
