Whisky Magazine "Packaging"

Postby pmullin » Mon Mar 05, 2007 11:30 pm

I know this sounds like a bit of a silly question, but how is WM packaged for mailing to international (esp. Canadian) subscribers? I've had poor experiences in the past with Canada Post beating the crap out of magazines that are mailed "as is", with just a mailing label.

In Sweden they show up wrapped in plastic with the adress printed on a covering leaflet. Never had any problems with damaged magazines.

Never had any problems with WM here either.
I have had other magazines mailed 'asis' with no wrapping and this is no good, but WM has a plastic wrapper and always arrives safely.

pm:
Mine comes in a plastic wrapper and so far hasn't ever come damaged. I live in the northern part of Ontario, just East of Winterpeg, so if damage was going to happen I would see it.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Sounds like a subscription is the way to go (as opposed to circling the local newsstand like a buzzard :D).

Mine comes in a clear plastic wrapper its sent from Sittingbourne in kent which is less than 100 miles but still comes through the mail system. I like that it s covered in plastic because even if tis raining when Mr postie delivers., it still won't get wet.

Looks like it's plactic wrapping all round as with me too. Never any major issues with condition either.
