Five Things You Should Know About USGlass

1. We’re an App for that.
That’s right, USGlass magazine offers its own application for iPad and iPhone, available in both the Apple and Android stores. We are happy to provide this free app to our readers. Just search by the keyword “USGlass.” And check out a lot of the interactive features we’ve added, just for you. In fact, our April issue is a completely interactive one with lots of extras and enhancements.

2. We give you the past with the present.

Whether you need to find an article that ran in our pages last month or last year, visit www.glass.com and click on the “search archives” text in the bar below the logo. You will immediately be transported to our archives page. Just enter your pertinent keywords and our search engine will pull all the stories from Key Communications’ publications that have run in the past 14 years.

3. We’re your daily newspaper.
USGlass magazine powers the USGlass News Network (USGNN.com™) daily e-newspaper, delivered right to your email inbox every day at no charge. Many people tell us that it is the single most important business tool they use on a daily basis. And it’s free. You can sign up at www.glass.com/subcenter. Then just click on the USGNN.com logo under daily e-newsletters. One reader wrote to thank me last year because he was on his way to make a big delivery of new machinery to a customer. “I stopped for coffee,” he said, “and there was USGNN in my inbox. The lead story was about the bankruptcy filing by the company I was on my way to deliver machines to. Needless to say, I did not make the delivery. Your newsletter, USGNN, saved me a lot of headaches.” That’s just one of the many kind comments I hear about USGNN.com every day.

4. The more the merrier.
Your colleagues in the glass industry are welcome to subscribe to USGlass magazine for free. Subscribers in the U.S. have the option of receiving a print subscription or digital at no charge. International subscribers can receive a digital subscription at no charge, though international print subscriptions do require a postal fee. Make sure everyone in your company who should be is signed up by visiting www.glass.com/subcenter. This is also the place where you can make changes to your subscription.

5. We’ll do research for you.
USGlass magazine has a robust but quiet research division that provides custom research to a wide variety of clients and customers. Whether it’s valuation of your glass company, a consumer focus group or market data, we provide all this and more. All work is totally confidential. Please call me if you have a need for such research and we may be able to help.
All these services are there for you. Please feel free to use them!
