If you are looking for more customers in the local area then look no further. Don’t go to the expense of having flyers printed, just place an advert with us and let us find them for you. Here’s why The Handbook is the perfect choice for advertising your business:

    • The handy A5 size means its perfect to keep by the phone until the new edition arrives.
    • The index allows residents to find the business they want quickly and easily
    • The magazine is printed in full colour and on  high quality gloss paper so your advert will look its best
    • For most businesses, 90% of potential new customers are local. The Handbook offers prime advertising space and puts your business in front of local people month after month. Most of our advertisers stay with us long term – some have been with us since our first edition in 2005, so it works.
    • With advertising rates starting at just £20 per month –  less than the cost of a daily cup of coffee – our prices offer fantastic value for money. And if your advertising budget is limited we can discuss your requirements and put a suitable package together for you.
    • If you do not have an advert we can design one for you. There is a small charge for this service depending on the size and complexity of the advert, but if you want to make any small changes to the advert in future months it will be done free of charge.
    • We accept adverts in pdf, or high res jpeg, Publisher or Word format .
    • It is our policy not to place the same type of businesses on the same page, unless they are alongside a relevant article e.g. gardening. The only place you will be next to your competitors will be in the index.
