    Well, the title says it all. While working on Pinball Magazine No. 2, which is nearing the final stages, orders for Issue 1 kept coming in. In fact: we're getting close to the required minimum number of copies to ship. That, plus that some people did order quite a while ago and we don't want to have them 'on hold' much longer, resulted in planning to ship Batch 9 next week. If you haven't ordered your copy yet, you can order it on www.pinball-magazine.com.

    For those who have no idea what Pinball Magazine No. 1 is about: it's a 112 page full color printed glossy, with in-depth articles. Issue 1 focusses largely on pinball industry veteran Roger Sharpe, and has also articles on IFPA, Pacific Pinball Museum, Pinside.com, Game Plan collector Jeremy Fleitz and more. The response has been overwhelmingly positive

    Great read, recommend it to every pinhead! Very well done magazine.

    #3 6 years ago

    Just a quick note to say I enjoyed issue #1. Worth the $20 and looking forward to issue #2.

    #4 6 years ago

    Still waiting for issue #1. Hopefully it will be in this batch. I'm looking forward to reading this mag.

    #5 6 years ago

    Didn't even know this was out. Gonna have to order me one before you stop selling them.

    #6 6 years ago

    Issue 1 was spectacular!! Can't wait for #2!

    #7 6 years ago

    Loved #1. How many did you end up printing so far?

    Looking forward to #2.

    I checked the address labels and your copy should indeed be in the batch that ships next week.

    Good read. I will get issue 2 also!

    #10 6 years ago

    Cant wait for issue #2!

    #11 6 years ago

    Just put in my order for Issue #1 -- looking forward to it!

    #12 6 years ago

    Thanks for all the positive feedback

    Update: Incoming orders will be collected until Tuesday 23rd. Batch 9 will ship Wednesday 24th. Order coming in after that will ship when the first Batch of Issue 2 will ship.

    When is the projected date for issue #2. (be careful here!)

    Have a beer or two-ish with Jack before you answer that!

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Well, I hope to send Issue #2 to the printer within 2 weeks. Then it will take about 4 weeks to have them printed and shipped to me. In the mean time pre-sale will start. As soon as the magazines come in I intent to send out the first batch.

    I'll probably send out another advertisers email as Issue #2 will count way more pages than Issue #1. With some extra ads I hope to keep the price similar to Issue #1, although more pages = more expensive to print. Current page count is over 160, so the postal costs for Issue #2 will definitely increase as it will weigh more...

    Was that careful enough?

    #16 6 years ago

    Yes! Maybe try not to have the page count go TOO high. Sometimes those very large square bound mags have an issue with staying together. It might be better to just have another issue.

    #17 6 years ago

    I ordered mine! Have you considered doing an iPhone/iPad Newsstand version?

    #18 6 years ago

    Just put my order in!

    1 week later
    #19 6 years ago

    Got my magazine today! Thanks and I look forward to quality shitter reading material.

    #20 6 years ago

    Got mine yesterday!

    I'm gonna revive this thread since we will ship another extra batch of Pinball Magazine No.1 this week, probably Wednesday June 12th. Pinball Magazine No.2 will go to the printer tonight and will start shipping early July. Since there are enough orders to ship another batch of Issue 1 we're shipping these now and not holding on to them for a few more weeks. If you haven't ordered your copy yet, you can order it on http://www.pinball-magazine.com.

    For those who have no idea what Pinball Magazine No. 1 is about: it's a 112 page full color printed glossy, with in-depth articles. Issue 1 focusses largely on pinball industry veteran / designer / historian / author Roger Sharpe, and has also articles on IFPA, Pacific Pinball Museum, Pinside.com, Game Plan collector Jeremy Fleitz and more. The response has been overwhelmingly positive See the top of this topic for images and a small video.

    Cheers,

    Can we see the TOC for Issue #2 yet?
    ....and when can we order #2? The PayPal still only has #1

    #23 6 years ago

    I'll start teasing soon enough

    #24 6 years ago

    Shipment of this weeks batch will be Thursday as I had to order more envelops These will arrive Wednesday afternoon. So there is a little bit of extra time to get on board if you haven't so far.

    #25 6 years ago

    Gonna place an order when I get home

    #26 6 years ago

    Envelops are in, shipping Batch 10 tomorrow.

    #27 6 years ago

    Late to the game, but ordered #1 today!

    #28 6 years ago

    Just ordered mine, too.

    #29 6 years ago

    Didn't order mine yesterday like I planned but did it first thing this morning. Hope I got in on time

    You were in on time. Orders coming in prior to noon (CET) tomorrow can still be shipped right away. So, 14 hours to go.

    Hmm, I thought that problem was solved. PayPal should appear in English, or actually local language. What I'll do for now is send a PayPal invoice to all incomplete orders of the past days. These should appear in English and easily payable. This weekend the webshop will be updated and hopefully this problem will be solved too

    Thanks for understanding.
