General: 100% handmade items are just that, handmade, and may have tiny imperfections. I’ve been formally trained in drawing, painting, printmaking, and bookbinding, and I always try my best to make something as perfect as possible. Anything beyond that, i call character :) Since all screens are different, you might see a slightly different color than I do here. Prints and color work may be a little more magenta or lemon than you see on your screen. I’ve tried my best to represent the true color in the photographs in my shop!
Q: How exactly do pre-orders work?
A: We need pre-orders to be able to afford a bulk printing rate. We put up the pre-order for about two weeks, then take the money we raised and get the issue printed & bound. Then we ship you the finished issue, approximately two-three weeks after the pre-order deadline ends.
Q: I see that one (or more) of your issues is sold out. Is there any way to order a back issue?
A: Yes! Head here to be notified when we have specific issues available.
Q: I’m not into physical copies, but your free preview is not doing it for me either. Can I get Chickpea on my mobile device?
A: We are currently working on an iOS (iPad, iPhone/iPod) app - it should be ready by the fall of 2012. If you’d like to be notified of the app’s release, head here.
Q: Do you do consignment deals?
A: We work with wholesale rates right now, but will do consignment if we can work out a good deal for the both of us. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set something up.
Q: Where can I find you in brick & mortar stores?
A: We’re working on building our stockist list right now, so we’re in limited locations. If you would like to carry our magazine, please contact us at email@example.com
Nooch Vegan Market - 3360 Larimer St. Denver, CO
Park & Vine - 1202 Main Street Cincinnati, OH
Chickpea Mag HQ - Rochester, NY (contact us for pick-up/drop-off details.)
Q: Why do Chickpea issues cost so much?
A: There are many reasons for the cost of our print issues.
It costs a lot to print small runs. The more people buy & subscribe, the cheaper we can sell them. We’re currently building a base of stores that stock our issues, helping us cut our costs for the future. Our customers are also growing month by month.
The length of our issues, the paper quality, and the binding quality cost more. We use sustainable materials, and our issues will last you a lot longer than your average Teen Vogue.
We don’t have advertising!! This is the main funding of any magazine - and we don’t want to have it in our print issues. We hate blatant advertising, and we think the people who appreciate Chickpea hate advertising too.
Major companies have deals with printing & shipping houses - it costs hundreds of dollars just to get a bulk rate permit, something we don’t yet have. We’re working on it.
