Frequently Asked Questions

What is Capital Style?

A. Capital Style is an upscale women’s magazine that covers fashion, beauty and shopping; local charities and fundraising events; homes and entertaining; in-depth features and profiles of local women; health, fitness, parenting and more.  It is published by the Dispatch Printing Company bi-monthly (6 times a year). The magazine has a circulation of greater than 35,000 copies delivered to select households and additional copies available at events, boutiques, spas and for sale at select bookstores. 

Q. Why do some people receive the magazine for free, without paying for a subscription?

A. When we launched the magazine in 2009, our goal was to generate readership and exposure. We identified key areas and neighborhoods that matched the demographics of the majority of our readers, and treated them to complimentary subscriptions. Currently, we insert complimentary copies of the magazine in the Columbus Dispatch at different times throughout the year. There is no longer a complimentary annual subscription. 

Q. I just received notification that this is my last issue. Why is that?

A. If you are a paid subscriber, it is simply time to pay for another year. If you are one of the lucky few who were receiving complimentary issues of the magazine, your trial subscription has expired.  

Q. How much is a subscription to Capital Style?

A. 6 issues for $12. The total with Ohio state tax is $12.90.
