I mean, it’s already a pretty fabulous magazine, with a great balance of stories and plenty of beautiful pictures to exercise your eyes. But we think it can be even better, so we’ve been busy behind the scenes, and we’re just about ready to send the fruits of our labour off to the printer so we can all see the finished result.
We’ve changed the paper, because we want it to be more capable of printing our incredible photographs at the quality they deserve. It’s a heavier weight paper with a slightly different finish that should react better to having the ink applied to it, giving a more consistent and vibrant result.
The better print quality allows us to be more creative with our layouts. We can do more with the pictures, and bring a more animated feel to the magazine. Don’t worry, you can still lose yourself in quiet contemplation, and it will still ‘feel’ like Singletrack, but we hope that some of the new design elements will help it be a more compelling and immersive experience. And of course, it will still be available in all the usual digital formats.
We’ll be listening to your feedback, but we hope you’ll like what you see. Join us by 25th November to receive this issue, along with the free Singletrack World Calendar. By joining us today, you’ll also beat our upcoming price rise, getting you Singletrack for a whole year ahead from just £20. And if you want to give Singletrack as a gift, it’s the perfect time to explore our gift memberships.
