Meredith Brings Print Subscriptions Back to Traditional Home

A year after converting Traditional Home from a primarily advertising-funded model to a more consumer-driven, newsstand-only publication—and cutting its frequency, circulation and most of its editorial staff in the process—Meredith Corp. announced Monday that it is once again selling subscriptions to the magazine. Starting with its Fall issue, out later this month, readers will have the option of purchasing $20 annual subscriptions to the now-quarterly shelter magazine, which carries a relatively high, $12.99 cover price on newsstands.

Since shifting... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
