Shop Owners! Interested in Carrying Issue 03?

Over the past two years, we’ve received numerous emails from art galleries, clothing stores and other assorted shops that don’t normally distribute magazines, asking us if they could carry copies of Coilhouse in their store. Sadly we had to turn down such requests in the past, because we didn’t have a system or staff in place for handling the process. We have a distributor (the wonderful team at RCS) that deals with shipping the magazines to bookstores on our behalf, and due to limited staff, we couldn’t take on the extra burden of individually corresponding with shops that didn’t have a magazine supplier. Basically, those stores were out of luck – until now.

This week, we’d like to try something new. We have a surplus of Issue 03 and we need to make room for Issue 04, so we’d like to offer wholesale copies (a minimum of 10) to any shops that are interested in carrying this issue. Think of it as a “pilot program” for figuring out whether we want to do this in the future. This experimental program is limited to the US & Canada only, and the only issue available is Issue 03. We are not going to be doing wholesale orders of Issue 04, but if this experiment goes well, we might consider offering the magazine wholesale to stores as soon as Issue 05 and figuring out a way to do this internationally. Stores that are already receiving the magazine through RCS will continue to go through RCS, but stores without a distributor could get it directly from us – if this little test with Issue 03 turns out to be effective.

If you’re a shop owner interested in carrying Issue 03, please drop us a note for full details! Please put “Wholesale” in the title of your email.

EDIT: I forgot to add, shops that participate in this program will definitely be featured on the blog, so that readers can find you.
