Magazine subscription service Gulf Coast Readers celebrates the recent growth of magazine readership.

A new report in Adweek discusses the climb in magazine readership both in print and digital forms, insight widely praised by Gulf Coast Readers, a magazine subscription service devoted to offering quality print publications and customer service. The article begins by addressing the exceptional news from the magazine publishing industry. “The latest data from GfK MRI’s Survey of the American Consumer” reveals that overall readership among Americans continues to grow from spring 2012 to spring 2013, even though sales fell flat at the end of 2012.

The report outlines that the U.S. adult magazine audience for both print and digital editions combined has “increased nearly three percent to 1.2 billion.” Gulf Coast Readers responds to this exciting news in a recent press statement, “It’s affirmation to everyone that magazines continue to remain as sufficient and diverse reference material for the public,” they said. “Not only that, but magazines benefit both publishers and brands, supplying a great resource for advertisers.

The study also unveiled thought-leader titles that saw growth, including The Atlantic, The Economist, Texas Monthly, New York Magazine and The New Yorker.

Even though the study saw a dramatic increase in digital readership, the article still acknowledged that “digital readership still makes up a tiny piece of the pie – measuring 1.4 percent of all magazine readerships.” Gulf Coast Readers comments on this statistic, noting the importance of print magazines. “Print magazines continue to grow in readership, catering to a vast amount of readers, expanding beyond the estimated three out of four Americans who do not own tablet computers.
