Papercrafts, Creating Keepsakes Magazines To Merge, End Print Editions

Creating Keepsakes magazine announced today that the magazine is ceasing publication after their November/December 2013 issue. Paper Crafts magazine is ceasing print publication as well, and the two publications will be merged together into a new all-digital publication called Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking.

The announcement blamed the change on the difficulty of competing against the immediacy of the increasingly digital world of publishing when dealing with lengthy “print lag” in producing a paper magazine. Creating Keepsakes had recently gone to publishing split issues, part paper and part digital, in an attempt to deal with this challenge.

Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking will be a monthly publication, and should look familiar to readers of the previous publications:

Created by some of the same editors from both Paper Crafts and Creating Keepsakes magazines, you’ll find many columns and features you’ve always loved in CK, including Latest & Greatest, Sketches, and Tips & Tricks. Continue Reading →

Creating Keepsakes Reduces Issues, Moves Customer Service

Creating Keepsakes has made official something close observers had suspected for awhile: the magazine is reducing its publication schedule from 12 issues to 8 per year.

The first bi-monthly issue of the magazine will be the combined March/April issue that will hit subscriber mailboxes shortly.

Creative Crafts Group will not be adjusting subscription expiration dates to reflect the reduced number of issues that will be sent to subscribers. Scrapbook Update has been told by reps for Creating Keepsakes that this is because the bimonthly issues are “double issues” so subscribers will still receive the same amount of content during their subscriptions.

The magazine has also moved part of its customer service operations to a new location according to Scrapbook Update sources. Subscribers who wish to contact Creating Keepsakes can now reach them via the following contacts:

888/253-0203 (US customers)

386/597-4387 (customers outside the U.S.)

Email: creatingkeepsakes@emailcustomerservice.com

The preferred method for contacting customer service should be via email.
