Most of you have experienced rising costs in recent months, and we are no exception. We are seeing an increase on prices for materials, shipping, and even hourly rates. To keep our magazine affordable and the print alive, we have decided to make some changes that will lower everyone’s overall monthly costs.

Starting in 2024, COLORED PENCIL Magazine will publish quarterly with more content, added pages, updated sections, new subscriber perks, and free shipping for USA addresses.

Subscriptions will be updated and reduced, cutting monthly costs in half for some!
Monthly Auto-Pay Subscriptions: $8.99 $4.49 Print+Digital / $3.49 $2.99 Digital Only
Quarterly Costs: $34.44 $14.99 Print+Digital / $11.97 $9.99 Digital Only

Cyber-Monday will be the only chance to purchase a yearly subscription at our lowest price – for one day only. There is no need to resubscribe if you are current thru 2024 or on Auto-Pay. Check under MY ACCOUNT on the website to see when your subscription ends.

I hope this will be a financial relief to you and that you will continue supporting us to make this magazine better than ever! Visit our site to learn more, or contact us with any questions.

We also want to let you know that this is Mandy Peltier’s last Q&A as she prepares to focus on new and exciting ventures. We thank her for sharing her knowledge with us and have enjoyed all the hard work she has poured into her fantastic column each month. Great things are in her future!
