Yesterday I received my copy of the woodworker and I must say that the feel and quality of the pages is very poor the texture is almost as bad a newsprint. I pay for a quality mag, are you going to reduce the price to allow for the paper. Thankfully the content has maintained a very high standard.

Hello Roy Oxley
I have the same opinion similar to this. Yesterday when I bought some books for my work the quality of that paper was too bad and it was not possible to write anything on the paper.
Paper quality was getting too low nowadays

Hi Roy and Ronald, we did answer this question within the letters section of the magazine a few months back, but since then the paper stock has actually improved? We've received feedback from a number of our readers saying that they've really noticed a difference in the weight and quality of it, so I'm sorry if you do not feel the same. As Mark explained in his letter thread, unfortunately as a publishing company we're under a lot of pressure due to rising paper stock prices, but we always try to deliver the best possible quality product to you, the readers.
I hope this helps to answer your questions, and thank you again for posing them - this is something we take very seriously.

I like the paper, feels natural, better than the glossy paper most mags are made of. I don’t think it’s a quality drop at all, if any, I would consider it a quality improvement based on my preference for the ‘organic’ feel.
