About

At Northridge Publishing we share the passion of creating with our readers as we provide inspiration, support, and resources to crafters everywhere. Reader layouts, cards, and projects are featured throughout our publications as we provide a forum for readers to share the latest and best ideas.

In response to current market trends and a radical shift in the media industry as a whole, we are excited to announce the development of our new and exclusively digital publications. On par with top media providers, our new publications feature cutting edge technology that allows for an enhanced experience that is only available with digital publications. Features include:
• in-issue audio & video
• slideshow and animation capabilities
• the ability to search issues, bookmark favorite pages, and add notes, along with other digital magazine industry standards

The digital magazines will initially be offered online, via our website, and for iOS, via an app for iPad, iPad Retina, and iPad Mini, with plans for developing issues specifically for Android in upcoming months. The magazines will be viewable through additional devices with a flash-enabled web browser and an HTML5 version will be released at the end of the year.

Jeff Stephens, Director of Operations, describes the new direction as a “drive to return to the heart of what built Northridge, while leveraging up-to-date technology to continue to provide the most current crafting inspiration in the highest quality delivery.”

Pam Baird, Editor-in-Chief, states, “We started our company over fifteen years ago with a desire to promote the preservation of memories and the creativity of paper crafting, and that continues to be our passion and the mission of our company. We celebrate the talent of our readers as we share ideas to help you create your own scrapbook layouts, cards, mini books, projects, and more. Over the past few years we have noticed a dramatic change in the way consumers are choosing to receive our publications – digital is now the preferred method of the majority of readers. To fulfill our desire to deliver our readers with the best possible content in the best possible way, we have made the decision to discontinue traditional print publishing and focus all of our efforts on providing fresh and exciting digital magazines.”
