    ... 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"?

    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!

    Once a month sounds about right to me. Are you doing email? When we did newsletters years back (before email) the postage was pretty pricey, not to mention the work involved. Either way I'd go once a month. It's less work for you and doesn't look like you're nagging at your customers.

    Once every couple of weeks to once a month. Otherwise, I don't pay much attention to them.

    I'd rather get an e-mail once or twice a month.

    a fortnightly email is good, announce sales at least a fortnight earlier - so we can save up and have spare cash, and reminders about new products are good - a webclick oooh looky here is also fun.

    I think once a month toward the end of the month when you are waiting for the first of the months check to come in.

    Depends on if there is coupons or not. lol If I get a flyer alot of times I will check for coupons and if there are none it doesn't interest me much. Sorry I'm cheap. If there are no coupons 9 times out of 10 I won't go shopping, but if there is at LEAST one coupon I will normally walk out with what I had in mind to use my coupon on, and then some!

    Depends on what's in it - articles, tips, ideas are welcome more often than "buy-buy-buy" newsletters.
