[A mock-up for the cover of our special print edition of Covet Garden!]
Last week, on our Facebook page, Covet Garden told you about our plan to create a special print edition, called Covet Garden Home. Today, we are pleased as punch to announce our Covet Garden Home IndieGoGo campaign to make that happen.
We launched our online lifestyle magazine with a mission to give you a rare peek into the lives and homes of people with lots of imagination who have decorated their living spaces by themselves. And since we débuted the most frequent question we've received from our readers is, When will you have a print edition?
Our plan is to produce a 100+ page half magazine/half book that will help readers tell their own design stories by revisiting your favourite homes from past issues of Covet Garden and by brand-new environments, DIY projects and food and drink ideas. Our goal is to deliver printed and bound copies to our readers by Winter 2013.
Why are we asking for help? We haven’t charged anything to bring you Covet Garden magazine online, but a print version means additional production costs such as paper, printing and shipping from the printing press to our offices and then to our readers.
In short, we’d like to raise $18,000 to help cover these necessary expenses. This figure is not the full project cost; we hope to make money (and spread the word about Covet Garden) by selling the print edition in stores and through booksellers as well as online.
