Publisher's Letter - Tried & True / Classic & New

We get it that some subscribers cherish the "feel" of reading a magazine printed on paper, others absorb that same information from their computer screens or tablets, and some peruse Sawmill & Woodlot content on their phones. Some people want both digital and print subscriptions because they've not only collected the print issues since Day 1 but also appreciate the easy accessi- bility of digital. If you have questions or feedback on our print or digital offerings or about our online subscription information and renewal options, please e-mail me at [email protected] or call me at 207/338-0300. I've really missed talking with members at shows this year, so know that I appreciate your feedback and doubly appreciate your sticking with us in 2020.
