Discount Packages

Save even more with our three-issue discount packages. The adverts need not be consecutive (you may prefer seasonal advert campaigns), but must be placed within a 12-month period. Our experience has shown that our discount packages are the most fruitful ways to promote your business.

Premium Pages

Our most popular pages get booked very quickly – for a very good reason. The response to advertising on the front and back covers, centre pages, inside front and back pages is terrific. A package of adverts on one of our premium pages is sure to bring more customers to your door.

Prices

We understand that advertising requirements vary from business to business and our prices reflect that. With adverts ranging from just £25 upwards depending on which magazines you choose, and various packages discounts, we are sure to have an option that suits you.
Please contact us for our ‘Key Features’ document detailing the prices for each area – alternatively, we will create a bespoke package that will suit your business needs.

Format

We can work with most digital and non-digital formats. Over the years we have used logos cut and pasted from magazines or cut out from jumpers (yes, really), so we’re used to every eventuality!
If you have created your own advert, please send a high res pdf or jpeg together with the advert in the original software.

Copy Deadline is generally 20th of the month prior.
