Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture


The general guidance for editorial features is:

Priority is given to advertisers who support the magazine so are guaranteed editorial space. Text should be submitted as a Word doc, TextEdit or email format nOT as a PDF, with infomation about relevant products, plus hi-res images (300dpi, CMYK, jpeg or tiff preferably) for the A-Z section, plus quotes about trends, inspirations and anything of interest in the sector for the intro. Please also include website and telephone contact details, and stand number for trade show previews. Please send all editorial and pictures through by the copy dates shown, the earlier the better though. We also have the Spotlight section each month for new greetings, gifts and industry services releases, and carry a show review in the issue following a trade fair.

As 2019 kicks off, Greetings Today are launching a Who’s Who digital directory. This exciting new venture will profile in an A-Z format all those companies wanting to ensure they are put in front of retailers and buyers on a daily basis. Each publishers will have their advert next to editorial coverage, including their website and contact details. To take advantage of this exciting opportunity contact Simon Davis on 01442 289940,
