In 2000 Teresa Reilly and Jackie DeRosa started MAME Magazine out of Boston, Mass. Over the next four years, twelve issues were printed and distributed across the nation. Artists ranging from P. Diddy to Aaron Carter were featured (check Print Years for a full list). However, in 2004 both founding ladies went and pursued further opportunities.
