The magCulture Boxset is the magCulture Shop’s quarterly subscription service. Subscribers receive a box of five magazines, delivered to your home/business anywhere in the world, to share with customers and staff. Each quarterly box will contain a combination of new issues carefully chosen to reflect the exciting independent magazine scene, plus the occasional added surprise.
Who is the magCulture Boxset for?
Boxset subscribers include businesses and individuals. They range from creative studios looking for inspiration, via cafés after an extra for their customers, to people keen to be surprised by a regular splash of creativity. We’ve been regularly helping people source collections of mags on a one-to-one basis. The magCulture Boxset is a streamlined extension of this service.
The next Boxset will ship at the beginning of July 2020
*Please note we ship Boxsets at the start of each quarter. New subscriptions ordered up to the 15th of that month will receive the Boxset; later new subscribers will start from the next quarter (January, April, July, October).
