New Magazine Launches Q1, 2013: Setting the Record Straight — At Least 45 New Magazine Launches and 146 Special Interest Publications.April 2, 2013
Quarter 1 from 2013 has been a very active quarter in the life of the printed magazine. At least 45 titles were launched in the first three months of 2013 with an additional 146 annuals, specials, and book-a-zines. My numbers are ONLY for PRINTED INK ON PAPER magazines. I do not track any other platform out there.
So those are my numbers of printed magazines. Enough said.
However, you do not have to take my word for it. Just look at the cover images of every new magazine that I was able to find on the nation’s newsstands. I post all of them on the Mr. Magazine™ Launch Monitor. That is why I use the term “at least” because that is all what one person living in one state was able to find. So you can imagine there is more out there.
And, by the way, if I do not have a physical copy of the new magazine, it does not go up on the site. I wait until I have a copy and then post it on the site.
So until the March issues are posted on the Launch Monitor, here are few images from March magazines and be sure to check all the other images of new magazines arriving at the nation’s newsstands for the first time at the Launch Monitor.
