Rogers Publishing and Transcontinental Media have teamed up on a double-page advertisement promoting print magazines.
The ad features cover images of several magazines from the two publishing companies, weaving the publication titles into a statement about how print magazines remain viable in an increasingly electronic world. For example, the first lines in the spread read, "Believe or not, [Canadian Living] isn't just about social media. Want to know [More] about how to turn a bigger [Profit]?"

The U.S. website notes, "We hope to dispel many commonly held myths about the state of our industry, and to share the exciting story of magazine advertising's outstanding value, unmatched recall and vast cultural impact."
There is also a video on the U.S. Power of Print website with five publishing leaders advocating for print magazines.
Young and Rubicam Canada handled the creative aspects of the Rogers/Transcontinental ad spread, said Khanna.
