Quoted from unigroove:

Thanks Bryan The answer to your question is very simple: Adding a hardcover will cost more, so make the magazine more expensive, and it will also be heavier, which results in higher postal costs. When I did Santiago Ciuffo's PINBALL book it became clear that the more expensive the publication, the less copies will be sold. Maybe it would make more sense to produce special hardcovers where the magazine can be placed in and make these available for those interested.

I have another idea. For premium magazines, there are often publishers that will make a nice decorative box to put them in so they look extra nice on the shelf. The box has the magazine's logo and will hold multiple copies. If you run out of room, buy another box. I wish I could find an example to show you what I mean but I'm running around today.

Speaking of my magazine today, but too busy to open it yet! I'm sure it's awesome and I'm a huge fan!

Another terrific issue...this magazine just gets better and better. Thanks, Jonathan, for all your hard work - you're truly a credit to the hobby and we're lucky to have you doing what you're doing. I the only one that thinks the magazine smells as good as it looks?

Quoted from unigroove:

I'm beginning to think the packaging is too good as most feedback is about that instead of the content of the magazine

Your magazine is like Playboy. Nobody actually reads the thing. It's all about the pictures....pure pinball porn.

Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

I got mine a couple weeks ago. I would have let you touch it when you were over yesterday.

You told me you took your copy out of his mailbox.

I sent my copy to myself just so I could experience opening it again.

Happy New Year, Jon...thanks for everything you do for the hobby, and it was so great to meet you in Texas this year and have my wife act like a jackass while she tried to relieve you of all your prizes.

Quoted from Vyzer2:

Unbelievably.... mine arrived today (Jan 20). Definitely thought it was a goner. Jonathan was making plans to send another. So happy that Jonathan did not have to spend even more added expenses. And btw, arrived in excellent condition. This magazine must have a story to be told.

I can almost guarantee you that the magazine made it all the way to Jersey within a week, then got held up in the Keasbey facility. I've had a Pinbits shipment that it happened to--among others--and they shipped me a replacement before the original ever arrived. Tracking always shows it in Keasbey for weeks and never moving. Really frustrating.
