We hear it from customers and dealers over and over just how good our magazines are compared to others in the hobby. Steve Esposito has earned the informal title King of Captions. Once you start reading them, you will understand why!
If you're like us, then the first thing you notice when you pick up a book or magazine is the photography. That's why we took such care in making sure that only the best images are selected. Our in-house reproduction and restoration were second to none. All of this means that only the very best reproduction appears in our products.
Design and Electronic Imaging
We invested in some of the best equipment and software in this field that included:
- The Nikon Cool Scan 8000 scanner for slides and negatives
- Epson 11000XL flat bed scanner for oversized prints, artwork, slides, and negatives
- Legacy Apple and Dell PC Operating systems and hardware
- High-speed Quad-core processors
- Raid archive and backup systems
- Color-calibrated monitors for superior color rendering
Many of the maps, line art, blueprints, advertising, business cards, brochures and illustrations that appear in our work started right here. We started with original work and through a careful process, reproduced them accurately and attractively in our magazines and books.
Shipping & Handling
We have dealers from coast to coast who still carry back issues although subscriptions are annulled as of December 2019. When it comes time to ship magazines, it's a very big job. If you have a chance to talk with one of our dealers, they'll tell you that they're very pleased with our service. That's because AJP's warehousing facilities, sales and shipping, in conjunction with USPS, means that we have the quickest turn around of orders in the hobby industry and some of the cheapest shipping rates.
