ACT: Sponsorships

To all of my fellow magazine and magazine media enthusiasts; to all the magazine makers; to all printers; to all paper companies; to all digital providers; to all the lovers of the printed word and those passionate about this art form called magazine making and storytelling; we at the Magazine Innovation Center need your help. Without your support and sponsorships we could not and cannot continue to do what we are doing, amplifying the power of the magazine brand in this digital age; it would be impossible. I deeply appreciate all of the support you have given the Magazine Innovation Center and me personally in previous years, as I do all I can to preserve and propel the medium that we all irrefutably love into the future.  Now I’m asking for a renewal of that support.

Some of you have already committed sponsorships for the different events at the Magazine Innovation Center and some I’m still awaiting a response. For those who haven’t committed yet, here are the five opportunities available to you for sponsorship levels and I urge you to commit today due to the financial restrictions and difficulties that we at the Magazine Innovation Center are facing. Depending upon your support is crucial to the ongoing efforts that are being conducted here and I appeal to you to support us at the highest level you possibly can.
