Who is Archive?


Shari Johnston, Editor + Heather Smith, Creative Director

Archive Magazine began as a crazy idea between two friends. Shari floated the idea to Heather and the more she thought about it, the less crazy it sounded.

They soon realized that a magazine was the perfect way to make use of their talents and maybe do something amazing at the same time.

Archive is a 100% independent, Alberta-based magazine featuring unique stories from across Canada. Our goal for Archive was to inspire people to enjoy the simple things in life, step outside their comfort zone and try new things.  

Known for it's creative and friendly design, Archive is printed quarterly on matte paper with a finished size of 8.375" x 10.875".

Each issue showcases a story in each of our main categories: Eat, Create, Explore and Enjoy. 

We'd love to hear from you!
