GET MAGAZINE MAILED - For a nominal charge to cover postage, handling, tax, etc., California Paddler Magazine can be mailed to you. This is meant to help those who can’t conveniently get to a shop that carries the magazine, but prefer the printed version to the free downloadable version.

The charge is $3 per issue to addresses in the US or Canada, or $5 per issue to other countries. Can be for back issues (while stock lasts) or to "subscribe" to future issues. Issues we have already published will be sent out immediately, and future issues will be sent out as soon as they are printed (you likely will have it before most shops do).

If you would like to pay by check, fill in and mail this form or mail a list of issue(s) to send, your mailing address, and a check (US funds only - made out to "California Kayaker Magazine") to:

California Kayaker Magazine
PO Box 282004
San Francisco, CA 94128-2004
USA.

Note, the check must be made out to California Kayaker Magazine, as that still is the legal business name.

If you prefer to pay by credit card (through PayPal), use PayPal to send the funds to "editor@calkayakermag.com". Make sure you include in the notes or as a separate email (perhaps by filling in this form) which issues you would like and your mailing address to send them to. If you don't have a PayPal account, go to https://www.paypal.com/ and select "Send Money" and then follow the steps (choose "Buying Something" when you get to that). The process would send money from your credit card, but will also set up a PayPal account for you (which not everyone wants, but is something that PayPal does automatically - sorry about that).

For more info, send an email to Editor AT calpaddlermag DOT com.
