The application versions are standalone computer applications (available in PC and Mac version) of each issue. They are presented in a flip-book style format with animation effects that simulate reading the issue like a physical book with a few extra features like bookmarking, thumbnails, fullscreen view, search, and printing options. The images contained in this version are generated at 300 dpi – just like the printed version! As such, they are the file size is much larger than the PDF file version. To see if this is the right digital version for you, please review our Flip-book App Preview Info page and download the preview application.

The
PDF file version is perfect for viewing on your smart phone, tablet, or computer using a standard PDF reader application. Images, however, are reduced to 96 dpi to dramatically reduce the size of the file (especially for smart phones and tablets where storage space may be limited). Since print quality is important and the images cannot be reproduced well at this DPI level, the PDFs are locked and printing has been disabled on these files. Also, please note that the PDF versions do not contain the front or back cover, just the interior pages.

Not at the moment, but we are working on it!

Naturally, this would be ideal for selling them at knap-ins, arts and craft shows, etc. that you attend. Additionally, we think that if you are in an issue, it just may help sell your product. For example, if a person was at a show and buying some of your knapped pieces, that person may also want to buy a softcover book with you in it so they can remember the name of the artist and have some more info about you (heck, you could even sign it for them). Basically, it would work this way. You send us an email indicating that you are willing to make a minimum purchase of at least 10 copies and we will send you back a code where you can purchase KQ from our e-store on Createspace at a discounted rate. The discount will be the same for everyone no matter how many you purchase. You buy “x” numbers of copies, pay the taxes and shipping charges, and then resell them for whatever purchase price you like. For more information about this, please review our Reseller Opportunities page. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us using the Contact form on this site or send an email to john@knappersquarterly.com.

If it has anything to do with knapping, we’re interested. Our publication has the following sections: (1) a cover story, (2) featured articles, (3) knapper profiles; and (4) knap-in reports. Naturally, the cover story and featured articles are the most freeform sections. Topics for these types of stories can include, but are not limited to, how-to, lithic materials and sources, methods of knapping, outside editorials and perspectives, things you do with your finished product (e.g., sell, donate, make jewelry, etc.), historical articles, etc. While we are happy to provide a link or reference to your commercial endeavors, articles cannot be purely intended as advertisements for your services or supplies (this is a benefit of your contribution to the publication).

Yes, we can. One of the simplest things we can do to start with is to send you a questionnaire to fill out. Depending upon the answers, we can help you further develop you information into an article or profile. Sometimes, all it takes is a little back and forth emailing or online chatting to work your ideas up into an article for the publication. Of course, we would like photos to go along with your article, which you may also want to think about. So if you have an idea, please go ahead and send us a message using our Contact page, and we’ll take it from there.

Articles and photos should be submitted by email to john@knapperquarterly.com. We can accept a wide range of text formats including .doc, .docx, .pages, .txt, etc. or even text sent to us as emailed messages. All photographs should be sent into us in the highest quality and size that your camera can take. Photographs can be sent as .jpg, .jpeg, .tif, RAW, .NEF, as well as in many other file types. In the unlikely event that we can not open your file, be it text or an image, we will get back to you as nearly all applications can save files in a variety formats.

Information and deadlines for submitting advertisements for the next issue can be found on our Advertising page.

All you have to do is email the photos of your work to john@knappersquarterly.com. If you have a large number of photos, please feel free to send multiple messages. Another good way to do this is to provide a link if you store your photos in the cloud so we can download them. All photographs should be the best quality and largest size that your camera or smartphone can take. Once we receive your photos, we reprocess and color correct each one so they look there best so you can showoff your hard work.
