Subscription FAQs

  • Is The Skinny still free?

YES. The Skinny magazine is still free to all, and available at shops and venues across Scotland. This subscription is aimed at those who like the convenience of having the magazine delivered to them, want to make sure they get their copy every month, and are keen on the extras (the exclusive riso prints, the album) that come with a subscription.

  • When will I receive my magazines/ prints/ downloads?

We publish the magazine in the first week of each month, and your first copy will be delivered at the start of the month following the opening of your subscription – so if you subscribe at any point in January, the February issue will be your first; if you subscribe in mid-February, your first issue comes in March, and so on.

We aim to get subscriber copies to readers within the first week of the month, pending any unforeseen delays in delivery.

Your prints will be sent along with your first issue; digital download codes will be sent to the email address attached to the PayPal account you used to subscribe.

  • I have moved house; how do I change my address?

Contact with any address changes and we’ll update our records.

  • I am based outside the UK; can I subscribe to The Skinny?

Not just now; the postage costs alone would take up the entirety of your subscription fees. Sorry!
