If you see something you simply must have, let us know and we’ll place a Special Order for you. We can order most items that don’t require a minimum order quantity. If you don’t tell us that you’re interested, we may not order enough for you to get one!

There are two ways to order from Previews: Long Order Form and Short Order Form. Either way, please make sure your first and last names and phone number are on the order form! Please note: The due date for order is on the cover of the order form. This is the date by which WE need to have the order in to our distributor. Kindly have orders to us a few days before so we can process them.

Long Order Form: This booklet lists every item in Previews, in the same order as Previews, and includes the release date and retail price. Clearly mark the Quantity of Each Item that you want. To make the items more visible, you may highlight the item, dog-ear each page that has an order, and/or include the actual page from the magazine.

Short Order Form: This tear-out form requires a little more work on your part but is much more concise. Clearly mark the Quantity, Item #, Item Description, Page #, and Price. The Item # and Price are found on the Long Order Form (search by Previews page #). These details make sure we get you the right item!

Note: If a title is already on your pull list, you do not need to order it again. However, if you see a new title that you’d like to subscribe to, you can make a note on the order form and we’ll add it to your list!
