    At present Subscribe no
    Would read every page of them if I had the extra cash to subscribe
    At present I have to go a wholesaler to hopefully find them to read and that is more the a 2 hour bicycle ride

    If your not reading at least one of them you are missing out greatly

    I thought at least one or two of those were free to subscribe to? I know the trade publications that I subscribe to are free (I have 2 for embroidery and 1 for Equine Science), I would have thought at least one of them would also have been free.

    I dont subscribe but I am given the SOTT and Sign and Digital Graphics by another sign company that doesnt even read them. SOTT sucks and is nothing more than a glorified advertising venue. I do like the other magazine. cool articles and what not.

    If you're wondering about which one to advertise in I have advertised in SignCraft and it got us a few customers.

    Wide Format Imaging
    Screen Print Magazine
    American Printer
    Sign and Digital Graphics
    FLEXO
    Graphic Arts Monthly
    Packaging Digest
    Package Printing

    There are others we get - but this is off the top of my head. I go through them in about 5 minutes and rip out the articles that do or may interest me and throw the rest away. There are usually only 6-12 pages worth anything. I then put the articles in binders depending on what they refer to.
    I have binders for color management, finishing, equipment, ink, materials, sales and gallery of ideas.

    Most are free for industry companies.

    I hope this is not considered a solicitation, because it is not. I wanted everyone who cares to know that we have a great article in SIGNCRAFT this month on page 18, please check it out. I am proud to share this and waited a couple of weeks to see if anyone had read it.

    Sign Builder is pretty good, Sign and Digial Graphics is decent, Signcraft is spectacular.

    SOTT is the worst POS ever, and they wanted to start CHARGING me to get it. It is, quite literally, 80 pages, and 68 of them are ads or "industry announcements" (aka, editorial ads). The 12 pages that aren't ads usually suck.
