Hello!

At the suggestion of a longtime member, I am starting this new topic for retail/non-comic magazines.

For me specifically, I am looking at skateboard magazines, but assume there is an interest/population of folks that collect magazines of all types.

Feel free to post questions, comments, pictures, etc. related to magazines below.

Thanks!

Those are SICK!

On the submission form, is it just standard that you can't submit a future month release date in the current year? Might be one of those things that just never got brought up because most folks are interested in slabbing older mags.

Looks like this issue for modern submissions has been update; kudos to the CGC folks!

Next question, anyone have tips/tricks on best way to ship to CGC for maximum protection?

Bumping this for input...really not sure the best way to package as the CGC tutorial is for comic mags that are relatively thin. Thanks for any insight you all might have!

Likely UPS; open to suggestions. Its for 5 fairly thick mags (within the 1/2" limit), 8x11.

Personally, I would put 2 or 3 into priority mail envelopes (in regular bags and boards), stack them and then sandwich the envelopes (2 for 5 mags) between 2 pieces of rigid cardboard that are slightly bigger than the envelopes.  Wrap the sandwich in lots of bubble wrap both ways (so that there's no wiggle room) and place them in a priority mail box.  Again, with enough bubble wrap around all sides so that there's no space for movement in the box.

I know this involves USPS, not UPS, but I've shipped hundreds of books this way and never had them get damaged.  2c
