Inside Flintshire Magazines are read from cover to cover and kept as a handy reference guide until the next one arrives. Our advertising works! It could be working for your business too!
Most small businesses have two main routes to keeping their business going: either word of mouth or advertising. Word of mouth is wonderful but you still need to keep things going by introducing new customers to keep the references coming in.
Placing your advert needn’t be another pain that take up hours of your time. We don’t expect you to design the advert or know exactly what to put in the advert. Just have a basic idea and we can it from there for you.
We specialise in dealing with very small businesses who don’t have marketing departments. When you call, we don’t just try to sell you the biggest advert we can.
Indeed we will even recommend a smaller advert than you were initially thinking of if we think that will be a better solution for you. Because if you run an advert that works a) you will advertise again and b) you will tell other people that it worked. In other words we would rather have you as a customer for life than go for a short term win.
- Our prices are affordable for everyone - you can have a professionally designed advert in print from just £15.00 a month, no VAT and we take credit and debit cards.
- A great shelf life – unlike free newspapers, people do keep this type of directory until their next issue is delivered.
- Over 75% of our advertisers stay in every month and many have advertised with us every month for the past 18 months. They stay in because it is the most reliable and most cost effective way to get business in Flintshire In other words - It works!

How much does advertising cost?
Our rates vary based on what size advert you need, how long you want to stay in for, and whether or not you need a premium page. So we ask for you to either contact us with some details about your business or call so that we can discuss your advertising. We do not do a ‘hard sellâ but prefer to understand a little about your aims for your business before making a recommendation on an advertising option for you. To assure you though, advertising is very cost effective and we take all major debit and credit cards, and have payment options for regular advertisers. To find out more call us on 01352 870 760 or send an email request here.
What are the deadlines?
In general our deadline is about the 18th of the each month, For new customers, it takes a little time to create your advert and to get your approval on it so we ask you to allow a few extra days.
However, if in doubt just phone on 01352 870 760. We will let you know the absolute deadline that that particular print run.
Do I have to design my own advert?
If you don’t have a graphic designer who can do it for you, our preference is that we do the design. If you book an regular advertising campaign, there is no charge for design. If you only want a short booking there is a small charge but if later on you become a ‘regular’ advertiser we will refund this.
We only need you to provide words and your logo if you have one and weâll do the rest. We will source industry logos for you e.g. GasSafe.
Can I design my own advert?
This of course is also perfectly acceptable! We accept adverts in either high quality JPG (300dpi) or high Res print quality PDF format. An advert in Microsoft Word or Powerpoint may not be acceptable as a fully designed advert so we reserve the right to make a modest charge if this requires further work. For your own design these are the sizes:
Business card: 62mm wide by 43mm high
Quarter: 65mm wide by 90mm high
Half: 135mm wide by 90mm high
Full: 135mm wide x 185mm high
