Linn's to get new look and size

Michael Schreiber reports that beginning with the November 19 issue, Linn’s Stamp News will be printed in full color on premium paper. The new Linn’s will also be smaller in format and mailed out several days earlier.

According to Schreiber, who is the editor of Linn’s, “The new Linn’s will also have a new look, with an updated front page and exciting inside graphics.”

He goes to say that the new Linn’s will be printed, bound and mailed from the Quebecor World plant near Cincinnati, Ohio. Quebecor World also prints Scott Stamp Monthly as well as 14 other Amos press magazines for coins, paper money, automobiles, and crafts.

George W. Linn created and fostered the successful stamp-hobby publication called Linn's Stamp News, begun in 1928 as Linn's Weekly Stamp News.

General James O. Amos founded Amos Publishing in 1876 with the purchase of the Shelby County Democrat in Ohio, which later became the Sidney Daily News.

For more than 120 years the Amos family produced the Sidney Daily News, until a portion of the family sold its interest in the newspaper holdings in 1999. John Amos and his son Rick are now the fifth generation to continue the 130-year family history in publishing.

Amos Publishing acquired Linn's in 1969. In 1984 Amos Publishing became the world's largest philatelic publisher with the purchase of Scott Publishing Company.
