No Problemo with mine

My Blue Beret comes in satisfactory condition but I don't think it is worth a $25 subscription. I joined WBCCI as is required to subsequently join VAC and get their newsletter. Now that makes it worth it.

I agree.

I purchased a subscription while shopping for our Airstream so I could check out the used units and to see what the dealers were offering. For that reason ... it was worth it to us.

When I did subscribe, it came in the mail just fine. But as Davydd said and I'll agree, it wasn't (in most cases) worth the trees or recycled materials it took to print it.

Mine comes in various degrees of dismemberment. The latest one slipped through unscathed. I wonder what the cost of plastic bagging is? It doesn't project a good image when your magazine arrives with half the back cover missing.

Polybagging

Polybagging (the plastic bag option Jcanavera mentioned) costs about $700 for 8,000 magazines, including ink jetting a mailing label onto the bag. 8,000 is roughly the number of Blue Berets mailed monthly. This is from our printer's most recent quote.

We will be polybagging Airstream Life.

Hmm that figures out to about $.09 per copy. Heck I'll pay $1.08 more a year. This would seem to be a no brainer.

Does anyone know the schedule?

Also, what condition is your magazine when it shows up?
Mine is typically tattered. I am wondering if it is my mail person or are the magazines tattered prior to departure from WBCCI.

I wish they would package them like some other magazines do.

Ken... nice article. Well Done!

BB Packaging

Talked to WBCCI this morning and mentioned this thread.
They are looking into packaging pricing and practicality.

They were not aware of damaged mags prior to today and this forum.

See they are listening, you just gotta speak.

Maybe its a Canadian thing. My Blue Beret comes in a large white envelope too. Never had a problem with shredding, torn, etc. Must agree, though there isn't much interest for those of us who are gainfully employed. I wonder if I could convince my boss that I need to take 50 days off to go on an Airstream Caravan - not bloody likely!
