Our 12th issue comes out in the new year. It's the best one we've made yet!
This new issue marks a new direction for us. The printed magazine is no longer free and will now retail for $4.20.
Good question. We have three reasons.
“Free” oddly limits where we can share the magazine. As a free magazine we don’t give retail shops incentive to place this beautiful thing in easy to find places. As a “for sale” magazine we’ll be in the rack at the grocery store and we’ll be in the book store window in addition to our current locations in awesome independent shops.
We will be more efficient with natural resources by printing the exact amount of magazines people are buying rather than printing as many as we can. We will also be more financially sustainable and able to pay for work that’s currently being done by volunteers.
We believe people will be happy to pay $4.20 for future issues of Stay Wild. Our solid fan base is made of people like you. People who buy things everyday knowing it’s a form of voting to fund the ideas we believe in. We also believe in the shops that stock us and when people buy our magazine from them we will help cover their business costs.
