MATCHBOOK NEWS

As a bookseller, your livelihood is dependent on the printed page.

So shouldn’t you be marketing to your customers in print as well?

Our Matchbook News newsletter service has got you covered, celebrating both the power of story and the emotional connection we make with the tangible page.

Matchbook News is a bi-monthly newsletter that combines powerful book review core pages with a four-page customized wrap-around promoting your bookstore’s brand, events, and specials. We pick the freshest titles of the season and put together cover images and book review copy. You provide the text and images from your store, and our delightful designer puts it all together!

We have a variety of size options, from a small completely customized version to a whopping 16 page mega-edition. The newsletter is also available in a digital pdf that can be uploaded to your website. See the price list below for complete details.

Co-op Reimbursements

We select our titles to maximize co-op eligibility, allowing you to re-coup most—if not all—of your marketing investment. To make it even easier, we work with Candlelight Co-op, who can make the claims for you for a special reduced Matchbook rate.

We’ll even pay for your service the first time you use Candlelight for a newsletter claim, simply because we want to prove to you how awesome and easy co-op can be.

Matchbook News Referral Rewards

Help us expand our Matchbook family! If you refer a fellow bookseller to our newsletter program, and they sign on, we will give you a credit of $200 to apply to your next newsletter, and we’ll also credit the referred bookseller $50 towards their first issue!
