Press Release Body: Laguna Hills, CA August 29, 2008 Art and crafting magazine
publisher Stampington & Company becomes the highest title-producing publisher in the
industry with its 2009 releases, generating a total of 31 titles that represent a
broad range of art and crafting media. Included in the record-breaking list of
titles are several new publications, which focus on a number of emerging trends,
such as green crafting, art journaling, playful stuffed creatures (commonly known
as softies), and art quilting.
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, launching on January 1st), Somerset Art Journaling (semi-annual,
launching on January 1st), Somerset In Love (special, launching on January 1st),
apronology (special, launching on February 1st), Somerset Apprentice (annual,
launching on March 1st), Marie Antoinette (special, launching on April 1st), Art
Quilting Studio (semi-annual, launching on June 1st), and GreenCraft Magazine
(semi-annual, launching on September 1st).
Stampington & Companys President and Publisher Kellene Giloff is enthusiastic about
the new publications being released next year. Many artists look to our magazines
to find out whats new and exciting in the world of crafting, so we have to be
dynamic and ever-changing to keep up with their needs, says Giloff. We are always
looking to broaden our artistic horizons through new publications, and our 2009
schedule reflects this continued commitment to readers.
In addition to the ground-breaking new titles being added, a number of Stampington &
Companys existing publications are finding success at newsstands at a challenging
time in the magazine industry. Take Ten, a quarterly issue devoted to quick and easy
rubber stamped card ideas, was the highest revenue generating magazine for craft
chain Michaels for the second quarter of 2008. At bookstore Barnes & Noble, Somerset
Studio (ranked #1), Art Doll Quarterly (ranked #1) and Belle Armoire Jewelry (ranked
#2) were ranked in the top two in each of their categories (scrapbooks/paper, dolls
and jewelry respectively).
All of Stampington & Companys publications are available on newsstands, or can be
purchased directly from Stampington & Company online at www.stampington.com or over
the phone at 1-877-782-6737. For more information about this release, including
