Our company was one of the I'm sure many to be scammed by The Blueprint Magazine.  I waited several months patiently to see if I would receive a reply but never did.  A member of our staff was contacted and asked for samples of our products and asked to pay $100 for the advertisement. Was also informed we would be featured for free in one area of magazine.

After trying to contact The Blueprint Magazine for advertisement related questions, no one would ever reply to emails or return or answer (google voice) phone call.  Under their contact page, google searching the names of the people involved come up with famous people such as comedians, etc.

Another victim we communicated with said she was told that The Blueprint Magazine is being sold to a new company, and that they will still be featured in the magazine, and to look for the print version on newsstands soon in her area. Our company, nor the others we have talked to regarding this SCAM artist magazine have been contacted, nor refunded for the advertisement purchase.  This must have been a pretty quick scam as there aren't too many reports yet, but wanted to let people know who have questions about this "publication" or website, to NOT send any money, samples, or communicate with them.  Their website looks like it just went through a "re-design" or moreso a new theme.  Coincidentally, their contact page doesn't seem to load.

Good Experience with The Blueprint Magazine

AUTHOR: Jay Randle - ()

Our tech company CailTech Brands used The Blueprint Magazine for the launch of our latest product line in 2014 and we had a great experience with the publication and readers. They designed our artwork and got us a proof to review before the issue was release. Great ROI and response from the readers, would advertise with them again.
