Dotdash Meredith’s Better Homes & Gardens, People temporarily halting some print subscriptions (

Magazine publisher Dotdash Meredith has temporarily stopped sending print editions of People and Better Homes & Gardens to some subscribers, citing a tight paper market.

The New York-based company, which maintains an office campus in downtown Des Moines’ Western Gateway, sent postcards to some readers this week, telling them they would not receive print editions of the magazines in the coming months. The company has offered those readers free subscriptions to digital editions of the magazines.

A company spokesperson said in an email Friday that Dotdash Meredith stopped some distribution to “a limited number” of People and Better Homes & Gardens subscribers because of a “temporary global paper shortage.” The subscribers involved represent about 7% of the company’s total print subscriber base, the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson did not answer a question from the Des Moines Register about whether the impact is concentrated in certain parts of the country.
