Since taking over leadership of CDN Publishing in 2015, we have made non-stop changes to our incredible brands. We have increased the amount of pricing and catalog data by a factor of 10.
We continue to invest heavily in the numismatic field. Last year we acquired the Banknote Book, a series of over 300 individual PDF country chapters devoted to world paper money. There is simply no comparison to this catalog. As of today, that catalog is available online for the first time ever.
The Launch of a Completely New Website
Over the past 12 months our lead developer, Greg Bradley, and I have worked with graphic designers, user-interface specialists, and a growing team of developers to redesign the greysheet.com web site from scratch, and we are excited to announce its launch today.
The new site is specifically designed to allow for the massive growth in data that we envision. We cover 138,432 different items today, but we expect that number to increase dramatically over the next few years as we grow to cover other collectibles of interest.
As you can see from the chart above, we have over 5 million reference images in our database, which are available for the first time to users. Auction data, Greysheet & CPG pricing, as well as images are all part the information we can provide our subscribers… AND the auction houses and retail companies that supply this information. We feel it is our role to bring buyers to sellers and information to everyone in the food chain.
Yes, there’s a catch.
With the launch of the new site, users will now be required to subscribe to at least a base-level plan, which they call the “Collector” package. It’s priced at just $7.99 per month – about the same as a Starbucks Frappuccino – and a lot less calories.
We’d love to give this information away free but that’s no longer practical. Starting today, we are offering several data packages for access to our site. Depending on the package, you will receive printed copies of our guides (Greysheet, Greensheet, CPG, CAC, etc). The magazines are great, and highly coveted, but the scope of data cannot be overlooked. There’s way too much to print so we want everyone to have access. We have created an easy pricing grid to help you compare the plans.
We still offer the same individual subscriptions, as we have in the past – at no price increase. If you’re already a subscriber, don’t worry. We haven’t changed anything about your access or subscription. The new plans represent options for new subscribers.
