Heres a sample:
As far as the new size and design are concerned, I think you have hit the nail on the head. I work with approximately 35 packaging engineers in my company. The day your magazine arrived, I heard the two engineers who sit closest to me make comments such as, well, its about time and finally, an issue I can fit in my computer bag. I think the overall response has been very positive. I, for one, have always perceived the larger issues wasteful and obtrusive. I really like what you have been able to do with your magazine.

I want to compliment you on the new size and look of Packaging World. Its a big step, but one long overdue and certainly one that I like. I wish you much success with all the new changes.

I just received the January issue of Packaging World with the new format and really like it.

I received my Packaging World yesterday and LOVE the new format. Hats off to Dave Bacho and everyone at PW. It is so much easier to handle and tote. I want to extend a huge thank you for getting it to me. I also want to add that its very easy to differentiate between articles and advertisements; visually its more defined now, with the headings being consistent. I really love it.

Just a few words to let you know how much I appreciate the new format. In tune with the 21st century! Keep up the good work.

LOOKS GREAT! Ive been receiving tabloids for years, and due to their unwieldy size, I have been throwing most of them right in the trash for years without looking (took up too much room in my in-basket). This is the first time I have taken the time from my work to look through it, as I will in the future now, too.

I just wanted to let you know that we received the January issue of Packaging World this week and the Overstock.com/Sealed Air story was great! Everyone in the office also really liked the new format for Packaging World. The new size definitely sets it apart and makes it easier to read and archive.

About your NEW LOOK...Its great! I do find the standard magazine size more convenient to carry with me, to page through, etc. It seems to stand out or catch the eye more than the others. I will be watching for future issues. Judy Fischer Packaging Engineer Sargento Cheese
