Compass & Clock, a popular senior topics-based publication featured in Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties in recent years, is shifting to a hybrid distribution-based model in 2022, and for the first time it will now be available for home delivery subscription.
Mary Coupland, owner and operator of Compass & Clock, said her organization can ship the high-gloss magazines anywhere in the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii); the annual rate is $9.99 for two issues — one to be delivered in May, the other in November — through Jan. 31, and $12.99 after that.
The Compass & Clock publication, produced in Kitsap County and personally distributed by Coupland across the region for the past four years, has announced that starting in 2022, the print magazine can be delivered to your home safely & conveniently. Offering a subscription model expands the reach of the publication beyond the tri-county region.
“It might be that I’m printing a few less copies (but it) means the copies I do print are going into people’s hands,” Coupland said.
Coupland said that in addition to the individual subscriptions, she is also shipping the magazines to the advertisers with Compass & Clock and also to some local businesses that are still putting out magazines for their clientele or members, such as senior centers.
Compass & Clock topics include items about housing, health care, various financial issues, nutrition and more. Recent topics include safety for dementia patient caregivers, supplements needed after age of 50, reverse mortgages, the benefits of golfing, travel tip sheets and others.
“I still think I’m providing great information for folks; we give people information in advance … (so) they have an idea of what’s down the road and they can start planning,” Coupland said.
“I just want people to enjoy life.”
The Spring/Summer 2022 edition has a “cover story” about pets and, to go along with it, a photo contest. Participants are asked to send a high-resolution photo of themselves and their pet to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 28; include your name, pet’s name and a small blurb. Coupland and staff will pick a photo for the cover of that edition. Other pets and pet owners will be featured inside. (Contest participants need to be subscribers.)
Compass & Clock also offers a free monthly e-newsletter.
