First off, thank you for your subscription purchase! We’ve worked so hard to make our magazine perfect for our lovely readers. Here is 2018’s timeline to give you an idea of when we ship:
Magazine Issue: Volume 5 (Sept./Oct.)
Subscription Cutoff Date: 7/15/2018
When you Receive the Magazine: 8/9 – 8/13
Magazine Issue: Volume 6 (Nov./Dec.)
Subscription Cutoff Date: 9/16/2018
When you Receive the Magazine: 10/11 – 10/15
Magazine Issue: Volume 7 (Jan./Feb.)
Subscription Cutoff Date: 11/11/2018
When you Receive the Magazine: 12/6 – 12/10
To further explain, if you order a subscription by or before July 15th, you will be receiving the initial shipment of the September / October issue and get it in August. If you order a subscription up to one month after that cutoff date, you will be receiving the supplemental shipment of that issue- meaning you will get the September / October edition sometime in September rather than getting it the month before. Our initial & supplemental shipping process is explained within the next question’s answer!
This is a question we get asked all the time. For starters, if you have not received anything for a few weeks, don’t worry- we have not forgotten about you! Since the magazine is bi-monthly, it may seem like it is taking a lot longer than it should to get to your doorstep. Here is an explanation of our shipments and when you should expect to get your first magazine!
There is an initial mailing of our magazine and a supplemental mailing. Our initial mailing is shipped to customers who have purchased a subscription by a certain cutoff date (see the answer to the question above for a reference), and to those who have already had a subscription. Subscribers who meet those requirements will get their magazine the month previous to the magazine’s edition (ex. You would receive September / October’s edition in August).
There is also our supplemental mailing, which is our second shipment of the magazine. If you subscribe to the magazine up to one month after the cutoff date, you will be receiving the shipment which will come that month that the magazine issue is (ex. You will be getting September / October’s edition sometime in September).
If you miss both cutoff dates for shipment of a certain months issue, you will be receiving the next expected edition. (ex. You purchase a subscription on 8/17, you would not receive September / October, but rather November / December).
For the $24.99 one year subscription, you will receive six magazines in total. The Farmhouse Movement Magazine is bi-monthly, therefore you will get a magazine right to your doorstep every two months!
