TCT Magazine Patreon Campaign

Written by

Patreon is a service that allows anyone to pledge any amount to help support the creators they love. Since you LOVE TCT Magazine and we LOVE creating it for you at no charge, it's a perfect fit!

Since we started as FJC Magazine in 2008, we've been commited to providing amazing Toyota enthusiast coverage completely free of charge. Our Digital PDF edition of TCT Magazine will always be delivered as a free download, that will never TCT Magazine is on Patreonchange.

The ads we sell in TCT Magazine allow us to pay our amazing editors, keep the lights on, and attend several events per year. Of course we would like to expand to cover even more events (especially on the east coast), provide more breaking news from the Toyota & off-road world, and expand into new media such as cutting edge videos and mobile apps.

We've setup our Patreon campaign to allow you to pledge on a per-issue basis. That means your pledge will only be charged when we publish an issue (5 times per year), and you can pledge any amount you'd like, and can cancel your pledge any time. There is no obligation, no long-term subscription, and your support is greatly appreciated.

Depending on your pledge level, we've setup several rewards as our way of saying thanks for being a patron. We'll send you a Founder Sticker, add you to our Founders section of the website, send you plenty of cool swag, and even meet you at an event for a one-on-one photo shoot, depending on your pledge level.

In addition to rewards for our patrons, we've set goals so you know where your hard earned cash is going. Starting with drawings for collectors edition copies, growing all the way to a completely free tablet app, our goals will help us grow as a publication and will ensure we expand our ability to deliver the content you love.

Checkout our Patreon Page today and pledge if you'd like to help TCT Magazine expand! Your support is very much appreciated.

Printed Subscriptions Are No Longer Available

Written by

After much deliberation and countless discussions among our team, we've made the tough decision to cancel printed subscriptions to TCT Magazine.

As it turns out, printing and mailing are very expensive, and with many people still struggling due to current economic conditions, they just can't justify spending cash on content that we provide for free via electronic delivery.

Since we announced TCT Magazine subscriptions, only about 1.5% of those that looked out our subscription page actually subscribed. At that rate, we wouldn't hit 1,500 subscribers until mid-2015, which isn't fair to those that have already subscribed.

Also, it's not very responsible to purchase thousands of magazines that may never be used. Most major magazines regularly print 1,000+ extra copies as give-aways for events and vendors. In the end many of these copies end up in recycling (hopefully) or in a landfill in the worst cases. In our minds that kind of excess no only wastes money, but is not very environmentally friendly.

We really wanted to do printed subscriptions for those that prefer the feel of paper when enjoying our magazine, but we just can't make it happen right now.

There is good news though!

100% of subscription money will be refunded. Many checks were never cashed & will be returned to the sender, credit card payments that were processed will be refunded (most were not), and paypal payments will be refunded or returned.

Also, everyone that has signed up will receive their Founder sticker, our way of thanking you for your support. If you don't see your sticker in the next few weeks, please send us an e-mail and we'll TCT Magazine Printed copies on Way2Tread.comget one out to you. Remember, founder stickers are only for those that signed up for a printed subscription before we cancelled that option.

You can still help support TCT Magazine in several ways!

  • If you like what we're doing and would like to see TCT live for a long time, please tell everyone you know about our mag and support our Advertisers & Partners.

  • We've also added a Tip Jar to the site if you'd like to throw some beer money our way :)
  • Finally, we're offering printed copies through our print-on-demand partner MagCloud at a small discount. These will be collector items as we will only print a (very) small number of each issue. These collector editions of TCT Magazine will include a square binding and will be shipped directly from us to you in a padded envelope. They're available on the Way2Tread Store and will cost $16/each. Learn more on the Way2Tread Website.

TCT Magazine Site Tour

Written by

It just occured that we put together this snazzy new website, and never went over some of the great features. Also, several people have asked about our printed subscriptions vs. the free digital version. We wanted everyone to know that EVERY article from FJC Magazine and most from Tacoma Magazine are available on our site. Going forward, all articles from every issue are available for free in Digital PDF form, and will eventually land on our website as well. It's easy to search for anything related to your Toyota Land Cruiser, Truck, or SUV and find great content through our site.
