FAQ

IS THIS MAGAZINE PRINT OR DIGITAL?

BOTH! We specialise in print, plus we’re old school. However, it is 2017 so you can order instant downloads by clicking here.

 

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR MAGAZINE?

We are currently not looking to expand our writing team, however we are always looking for contributions from photographers and artists. If/when a specific position needs filled long-term, we will advertise this on our website and use social media to reach out to prospective candidates. However, we regularly feature artwork, photos and sometime even articles sent to us from readers of the magazine. If you have some work that you would like to send us for consideration, please email our editor at Editor@CallingSpots.com. Please remember that we are not actively looking for new contributors and submissions may not be used. Submissions will not be used unless you receive a reply email from us to discuss terms. We recommend that you’ve read our magazine before enquiring about joining our team.

 

I’VE ORDERED A PRINTED SUBSCRIPTION. WHERE IS MY FIRST ISSUE?

Your subscription will begin from the next issue we release after you place your order and will be dispatched the very first day they land in our office from our printing company. Because of this there may be a delay of several weeks between your order and your first issue arriving. Until then, please log into the VIP Library to enjoy all of our back issues as part of your subscription.

 

WHEN IS EACH ISSUE RELEASED?

We don’t have a strict schedule but we are currently in the process of moving towards being a bi-monthly magazine.

 

MY ORDER DIDN’T ARRIVE/WASN’T CORRECT. HELP?

In over four years of sending thousands of magazines around the world, only six orders (to-date) have arrived and not been correct or simply not arrived. As proud of that fact as we are, we are even more proud of our customer service. If something isn’t correct with your order, tell us by emailing Editor@CallingSpots.com and we will fix it.

 

WOULD CALLING SPOTS LIKE TO DO A CROSS PROMOTION?

We spend money on various advertising campaigns across different media types. If you would like us to promote your product/show/service then please visit CallingSpots.com/advertising to see our packages available. If you would like us to advertise with you, please email us your rates and reach statistics to Editor@CallingSpots.com and we will contact you back if interested. We do not swap advertising for advertising.

 

DO YOU SHIP TO WHERE I LIVE?

Absolutely. We ship WORLDWIDE. If you have an address we will send it there.

 

I WANT TO ORDER FROM OUTSIDE OF THE UK BUT SHIPPING SEEMS EXPENSIVE. ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES?

Yep. If you want to order multiple items, please email us at Editor@CallingSpots.com outlining which items you wish to buy and we can get you a quote for shipping as one parcel to save you some money. We also offer digital issues and subscriptions which involve no shipping costs. Digital issues can be purchased HERE for £1.99 each or you can subscribe digitally HERE for £9.95 which gives you instant access to every issue magazine we have ever made as well as access to every new issue we release for the year-long duration of your subscription

 

I USED TO BE A SUBSCRIBER BUT I LEFT FOR A WHILE AND NOW I’M TRYING TO SUBSCRIBE AGAIN. UNFORTUNATELY I CANNOT SET UP MY ACCOUNT USING MY PREVIOUS USERNAME OR EMAIL ADDRESS. HELP?

First of all, welcome back. We appreciate that you had to take a break for a while but we’re very happy to hear that you’d like to become a subscriber again. Once your subscription ends, your online account (to view and download issues) is deactivated, however the details you entered stay dormant in our database. To re-subscribe after you’ve left for a period of time, you can either do so with a whole new username and email address or you can email us at Editor@CallingSpots.com and we can reactivate it on our end upon receipt of payment for your respective subscription plan.

 

I PREVIOUSLY PAID £1 FOR SHIPPING TO THE UK, NOW IT COSTS £1.50 FOR A MAGAZINE. WHY IS THAT?

The short answer is that’s how much it costs for a Royal Mail large letter over 100g plus the cost of packaging. However, the reason we have moved to £1.50 postage is that the 100g limit was restricting what we can offer you as a product, as we would never sacrifice quality. Now that we have moved to £1.50 shipping we have more freedom to offer bigger free items (starting with the A5 Jimmy Havoc print) and have scope to increase how many pages are inside your magazine. So, even though that extra 50p goes to the Royal Mail, we will be sure to give you value for those extra few pennies.
