Canadian Paper, Canadian Pride

by - Friday, June 29, 2018

We are a lot of things, but first and foremost we are proudly Canadian. As we approach our second anniversary issue, we are reflecting on all the amazing things we've learned and the great people we've connected with. Canada is a beautiful country, rich in creative talent, and we're so thrilled to be able to share a small piece of that with our readers every quarter.

As many of you are aware, the Trump administration has been imposing harmful tariffs on many Canadian trades, one being the paper industry. So far, it seems to be focused on newsprint, but there's nothing to say it won't progress to cover the high quality paper we use to produce our beautiful magazine.

This is preposterous and inexcusable.

Before our launch in 2016, we pored extensive research into finding the best quality for our dollar in regards to print, and unfortunately we didn't find a Canadian company that could meet our needs. Though we are very happy with the company we chose, we always had that nagging guilt we weren't investing back into our own economy with our publication.

A lot can change in two years. New companies are popping up all the time, and we are very pleased to let you know we have found a Canadian company to work with that we believe can match the price-point and quality you've come to expect from us.

We still need to order a proof copy to ensure we're fully happy with the product, but it is our intention, moving forward, to do our main print-runs through this Canadian outlet and we are thrilled this option is now available to us! We will continue to offer print-on-demand through our existing outlet, but feel very positive about this patriotic step.

Happy Canada Day Weekend! Enjoy a great time celebrating our country with your friends and family!
