Got Questions? We’re always happy to hear from you! Below is a list of questions that we are frequently asked. If you do not see your question on the list, please email us: info AT herbalrootszine DOT com.
Can I get Herbal Roots zine sent to me in print?
Herbal Roots zine is a PDF zine only and we do not have the capabilities at this time to print and mail out issues. You are welcome to print them off yourself or take them to a local printing place. Families are allowed to print off as many copies as are needed for use within their immediate family.
How often is Herbal Roots zine published?
Herbal Roots zine is a monthly publication that is sent out via email links between the last Friday and the last Monday of the month to subscribers. It is available to everyone else as a single download on the first of every month.
I am new to Herbal Roots zine but received free issues through another website. Can I get another year for free with my annual subscription since I’ve already received the bonus elsewhere?
At this time, we are only offering the 2009 archive with the purchase of an annual subscription.
I have just subscribed to Herbal Roots zine and would like to purchase the back issues. Why are the archived back issues more than the current subscription rate?
The current subscription rate is a discounted rate that I have been offering indefinitely. Subscriptions usually run $60/year. If you purchase them issue by issue it would cost you $95.88. It takes additional time for me to put together the annual archives so at this time, it is what we can offer for the time involved in putting everything together.
Occasionally I do put the archived issues on sale but I do not have set dates for that to happen. I try to offer sales every few months so if you are interested in waiting for a sale, be sure you are on our newsletter list to be notified of when they go on sale.
I would like to subscribe to Herbal Roots zine. It is halfway through the year, can I back date my subscription to January so I can get the entire year in my subscription?
I cannot backdate the subscription; however, all the back issues are available for sale in the archives:
I would like to give a gift subscription to my niece/cousin/grandchild/child. Is it possible for the ezines to go directly to them while I pay for it?
Yes it is! When you purchase through paypal, there will be a place for a note, simply tell me the name and email of the person you would like it to go to along with the date you would like it to start (for instance if it’s for someone’s birthday, tell me the day after you are notifying them of the gift subscription). If you are mailing a check, simply include the recipient’s name and email address. If you email me directly after purchasing, I am happy to send you a gift certificate to give to them as well.
Do you offer discounted rates to students or seniors?
We offer discounted rates to anyone who purchases an annual subscription. Individual issues run $7.99 each ($95.88/year) but an annual subscription is $34.99, a savings of $60.89. Additionally, archived annual sets can be purchased for $60 which is a $35.88 savings.
I am new to Herbal Roots zine. Can you send me a free issue to check out before I commit to buying an entire year?
Sure! Simply sign up to receive my weekly newsletter and a free issue will be sent out to you. The newsletter is completely free and is sent out weekly to remind you of our awesome giveaways and send you information on the upcoming issues along with free recipes and craft tutorials.
