I have been a long time subscriber and this magazine was my favorite. Below is what I received today via email. This scenario is the 2nd time this has happened to me this year and I am very unhappy. I just want my money back because I want stamping and stamping only. No wood crafts, no knitting, no glass etching, no house decorations . There was no option given for cash refunds just as the other magazine gave none and then I got stuck with some trashy gossip magazine. I just renewed Rubber Stamper this past summer for several years and I don't want several years of a junk magazine. Most unhappy I am!Dear Readers & Industry Friends:
I am excited to inform you that The Rubber Stamper magazine has been sold to Amos Craft Publishing. Amos Craft Publishing is a fine publishing company with a tremendous amount of experience in the creative industries. I will have the opportunity to work closely with them in the months ahead and together we will create a plan to take the magazine to a new level. The November/December 2007 issue will be the last issue of The Rubber Stamper in its current format. However, Amos Craft Publishing plans to incorporate The Rubber Stamper into its flagship magazine Crafts n Things and will continue to provide you with 75+ card and stamping projects in every issue! Amos Craft Publishing will fully honor the number of issues you have left on your Rubber Stamper subscription so you will automatically receive Crafts n Things for the remainder of your current subscription.Amos Craft Publishing has several other excellent craft magazines including, Painting, Pack-o-Fun and The Cross Stitcher. If you prefer, they?d be happy to transfer your subscription to one of these other Amos Craft publications.If you have any questions about your subscription, you can contact Amos Craft Publishing toll-free at 1-866-222-3821 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, watch for your first issue (January/February 2008) of Crafts n Things to arrive in early December.If you currently purchase copies of The Rubber Stamper in your favorite retail shop, please be assured you can continue to purchase Crafts n Things in the majority of all craft shops, bookstores, as well as grocery and convenience stores. It has been my pleasure to launch this magazine and watch it grow and mature during these 11 years. I am certain that you will be pleased with the changes that are planned and the exciting new format of your favorite stamping magazine.
Warm Regards,Tammy Keck Publisher
