Other ArchPort® products were most recently featured in US Airways Magazine, SkyWest Magazine and Porthole Cruise magazine. Past products were featured on Good Morning America and Maxim Magazine, among others. They have sold through, Hammacher Schlemmer, QVC, Brookstone and other quality retailers.
