When selling a product and running a brand in our current age, it’s very easy to get caught up in the idea that quantity trumps quality; that metrics are the only indicator of success; that likes and shares and retweets and clicks dictate what you put out into the world. We’d like to think that we’ve always maintained a healthy degree of scepticism on this subject, but in truth, when we sat down to take a good, hard look at what we’re doing with Lagom online, it’s apparent we’ve actually found ourselves sucked into that mentality to a degree. And we’ve decided to change that.

Today we’re announcing the Lagom patronage subscription: a way of showing your support for the publication that will help us continue to run the magazine in an honest, meaningful way.

From the day we launched the magazine, we’ve aimed to keep shipping costs simple and fair by offering a flat fee of £4 to anywhere in the world. However, after some number-crunching, we’ve decided that it’s time to update our shipping costs.
