Railway Dental - Penkridge

A great looking publication always with an eye catching cover. Would not hesitate to advertise in the Penkridge Advertiser again. It’s A5 size great to pick up. Very professional service with all editorial staff happy to work with us to achieve the exact image we wanted for the opening of our new dental practice. We were very impressed with their design layout and clever use of photos. A very experienced and friendly team to work with. Many new enquiries have been as a direct response to the advertisement

Mecure Hatherton House Hotel

The Mercure Hatherton House Hotel has been advertising in the Penkridge Advertiser for many months and has seen some great results. We have taken a wide range of bookings with reference to your magazine for events such as our Valentine’s evening, Mothering Sunday lunch and Christmas bookings. All of the girls at the Penkridge Advertiser are lovely and very helpful with any aspect of the advertising. This is a magazine that we will continue to promote our hotel in month after month. Thank you to all the team

Ralvern Upholstery Sofa Makers Cannock

I just wanted to write a few words to say a big thank you to all the team at the Penkridge advertiser. We have had a great response to the advert placed with you, you always are such nice people to deal with and have our best interests at heart. This local magazine is in my eyes the future of finding and trusting local trades, it’s a great pairing all round. So a big thank you! All the very best, Simon Edwards Ralvern Upholstery

Rick at Penkridge Fencing

I have using The Penkridge Advertiser and The Stafford Directory for around 4 years now. The response from my advert has been fantastic and I am really pleased with feedback I get on a monthly basis from customers living in the local area. I would highly recommend using these mags to any business owner as it has increased my work load significantly since that start of my advertising campaign. Thanks to the team and keep up the good work!

Craig Carr - The Drive Cleaners

We have been advertising in both The Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser for 3 years now and I can honestly say I can’t fault it. We get plenty of enquiries from both magazines and I wouldn’t consider stopping my adverts, if I did my business would certainly take a lot less calls than it does now! Carole and Jenny are fantastic at what they do and are always there to answer any questions you may have. Keep up the good work

Adrian Richards from Penkridge Cattery

Like all small businesses we need to advertise to constantly secure new customers. Our business attracts most of its customers from within a 10 to 20 mile radius and we find that local advertising has given us the best results so far. The Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser has the ideal catchment area with extensive coverage of the local villages and towns serving over 10,000 homes. The booklet size and content makes it very convenient for households to keep and renew every month and its free to every home! I have regularly seen the magazines in homes and businesses who use it as a source of reference when searching a local trade or business to meet their need. We have used both publications since they began and will continue to use them as they expand coverage across the local community as we find it money well spent!

Iain at Countrywide Caravan Services

I have used the magazines for the last two years to promote my business and it has generated many bookings which have lead to countless referrals, I no longer use any other form of advertising. It’s a great way to target customers locally. Highly recommended.

Rich at Inspired Coaching

We found Carole & Jennifer really helpful when we were looking to promote our business. They advised us on the best format and placement for our ad. This resulted in a great response when the magazine was published.  We will be advertising again and do not hesitate to recommend their magazines as a cost effective means of getting your message out to people

Hilary Hughes at Sew Many Things

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I appreciated all the help and support you gave me when I set up Sew Many Things in Penkridge. My business has gone from strength to strength and many of my customers have come to me from both Stafford and Penkridge magazines. Thank you so much

Lynne at Penkridge Parish Council

The team are great, they assist and advise if required, nothing is too much trouble and the final advert is well above expectations!

Matt at Penkridge Market

We regularly place adverts with the Stafford Directory and The Penkridge Advertiser, the magazines are  always excellent and we find that we get a very good response from its readers. Jen and Carole are always helpful and can place adverts at very short notice. We recommend both publications to any other local businesses!

Katie at Prestige Paint

Advertising in The Stafford Directory/The Penkridge Advertiser is good value for money and Carole and Jen are very friendly and helpful, thank you!

Anne at The Guildhall Shopping Centre, Stafford

Thank you so much for the support you have shown the Guildhall Shopping Centre over the last 18 months.  There are many monthly magazines and periodicals that we could choose to advertise in, but the Stafford Directory has always worked well for us as the magazine is delivered to homes in our key target areas.  It has been a pleasure to work with Carole and Jenny who have always shown great interest in the Guildhall and shown creative design skill in the articles they have produced for us.

Adam at Mecure Hatherton House Hotel

The fact that your mags come out at the same time every month gives us the opportunity to tell our customers about our events for the forthcoming month. This is really helpful for us. We don’t use mags and leaflets that are distributed with newspapers because the response is not good. Many thanks.
