Do you own a comic shop, or set up a table at the local toy show every now and then — or maybe you run the toy show and sell items at the door? Would you be interested in selling copies of Cool & Collected Magazine? If so, I want to talk with YOU!
Okay, all kidding aside, I am exploring some creative ways to distribute copies of the magazine. The magazine has garnered great reviews in the collector community and currently, the only way to buy a copy is here on the site, so It’s time to look at other options. This entire operation has been a grassroots, boot-strapped endeavor, and there’s no reason to stop now. Sure, one day I want to see the magazine on every newsstand in the country, but I’d honestly be more thrilled to see it appear at local collector shows and flea markets on any given Sunday.
Think about it, you’re going to be at the show anyway, your table is already paid for, and a stack of magazines only takes up a small amount of space. Or maybe you own comic shop — these magazines are the perfect point-of-sale item to have sitting next to the register for those impulse buyers.
To be a distributor, the minimum purchase amount would be 25 copies, which you would be able to purchase at a steep discount. You could then sell those copies of the magazine at your shop or convention for the $7.99 cover price (or any price you choose, really). If this sounds like something you would like to pursue, drop me an email and I’ll send you the details.
