What is a Digital Magazine? What are the benefits?
NAILS is proud to provide our magazine in a powerful new digital format with the same layout, text, and advertisements as the print version.
The subscription link below is for a free subscription (digital only). NAILS reserves the right to limit free subscriptions. Qualifying persons outside the U.S. will be given priority due to the fact that the postage on this heavy magazine is quite expensive leaving the U.S.
The digital format offers a paper-like reading experience, but with many advantages possible only in digital format, including:
- Automatic delivery of every issue directly to your computer via the Internet as soon as it hits the newsstand, often before you would receive it through the regular mail.
- The ability to read your magazines anytime, anywhere.
- A hyperlinked Table of Contents takes you directly to the articles, features, and sections of most interest to you.
- Quick links to advertisers' sites and additional editorial content on the Web.
- Keyword search that helps you find a topic or name in seconds.
- A "Send to Friend" feature that allows you to send free digital copies of your magazines to colleagues, complete with your notes.
- Paperless archiving. Access to back issues offers fast reference and easy storage.
Does the Digital Magazine contain everything that the print magazine has?
Yes, the digital format offers you the same great content, and the same great design as our print magazine. You won't miss a single article, photo or advertisement.
