... to receive a newsletter? (From a fabric store.)

You know, the kind that announces sales and new arrivals.

Is once a month not enough? Is every week too often?

What's the right timing, that you actually look forward to the newsletter, rather than tossing it or considering it to be part of "the clutter of life"?

I think once a month or two at the most.

Dang I thought this would be about something else!
I think every two weeks unless they are long. I like reading about new things and having old ideas repeated.

Once a month is good, except maybe occasionally if you had something REALLY special to announce. Weekly would be too often.

If itís an email, I would actually like once a week so long as it includes the new sales or specials of the week (just like any store that has sales flyers), if itís going to be printed, I think once a month is enough.

If you're announcing sales, once a week is about right :lol: :lol: But I like to see all the new stuff too along with everything new in your shop. How often do you get new stuff in or make new samples, etc.? How much time do you have to devote to a newsletter?? :D

Email about every two weeks , special announcements as needed :thumbup: Hard copy maybe monthly or less often, as those are more costly to produce and mail , and I understand that. Plus everything changes rapidly :thumbup:

once a month and if any new products could put out say on the 15th of the month and 30th of the month

that way customers would know to look for the newsletter on the 15th and 30th!
