Printed WordPress Magazine to be Released Shortly

February 8th, 2012
WordPress, WordPress News

WPCandy Quarterly, a WordPress related quarterly print magazine from the folks at WPCandy, is just about to be mailed out to the lucky readers who either pre-ordered or subscribed. To my knowledge, or at least about half an hour of searching, this may very well be the first ever printed WordPress magazine publication.

The first issue will feature articles from 11 well-known contributors, and due to demand from the pre-orders, 2,000 copies are making their way through the printers as you read this. A lot of thought went into the design of this magazine, and you can see a video blazing through the various drafts below.

It’s not too late to reserve your copy, so if you want to be a part of this historical launch, you should¬†place your order¬†soon before they’re shipped.

    How many pages are in issue #1? Can we get a sample article? The table of contents on #1 doesn’t look like it contains anything that can’t be found online.

    I’d like to support this, but $5 shipping to a US state? Really? That makes it $17 for one issue. ($9 for the yearly subscription, or $11.25 an issue.) Pretty high-priced for what appears to be pretty standard blog-post type articles.

      You’ll have to get in touch with WPCandy about that. I don’t see any samples online, but the draft process video above should give you a good idea of what to expect.

    $20 shipped to Canada is steep, still tempted though.

    I think a printed magazine is a great idea; I hope it retains an open-source atmosphere and allows for reader contributions.
