Market Treasures Archives

The History of Marketing Treasures

Marketing Treasures began publication in 1987. An annual subscription included 6 issues of the newsletter, 3 sheets of original library clip art, and a binder system to keep everything together. Twelve years later the newsletter was converted to electronic format and offered free. In 2000, Marketing Treasures was temporarily suspended while the editorial staff planned the newsletter's future. The completely revamped Marketing Treasures was released in January 2005 with Volume 14, Number 1.

About the Archives

Beginning January 2005, each issue of Marketing Treasures is automatically posted to the web site as a PDF file. The most recent issue is available on the Current Issue page. Our complete archive consist of 68 issues of the newsletter, extending from Volume 1, 1987-88 through Volume 13, Winter 2000. For volumes 1-7 we list only the feature cover article of each issue. For volumes 8-13 we list the compete contents of each issue. The 6th issue in each volume (July/August issue, number 6) contains the index for the volume.

We have not updated or changed the contents of the newsletters, so some of the information, particularly the resources and calendar events, may not be accurate. (We are not responsible for obsolete or incorrect information in past issues of Marketing Treasures.) The clip art sheets have been included, however the artwork has been watermarked. Many of the images on the clip art sheets have been colored and are now available on our sister web site,
