Press release from the issuing company
GREENWICH, Conn.--Feb. 7, 2003--Quebecor World has entered into a multi-year agreement with Conde Nast Publications to print its new magazine, Teen Vogue. This Euro-sized title (6-3/4" by 9-1/8") will be launched with the February/March issue and have an initial circulation rate base of 450,000. It will be published six times in 2003.
Teen Vogue will feature the same caliber fashion and photography as Vogue, but it will be tailored to sophisticated teen sensibilities and show products in a range of prices. Articles will address the full range of teenage interests - from celebrities, movies, music, and shopping to peer pressure, body image, and self-identity.
John Paloian, Chief Operating Officer, Quebecor World North America said, "When a major publisher launches a new publication it requires a significant investment of resources. Choosing Quebecor World to print its new magazine is the highest compliment Conde Nast could have paid us. It reaffirms their belief in Quebecor World's ability to print the highest quality magazines."
