7x7 Says Goodbye To All That Ink & Paper

As many of you already know, this week we announced that 7x7 is shedding its old print clothes to move with the times as an all-digital San Francisco magazine. For 13 years, we have poured heart and sweat into the pages of a regional book filled with all the cool news, stylish happenings, and brilliant people in the SF Bay Area. Our magazine has evolved and improved, and we believe that each new issue has been our best. But the challenges facing the print industry have only continued to grow, and we’ve struggled alongside the best of them trying to make it work. At long last, we’ve decided to cease swimming against the current and move with it instead.
