Advertise With Us
- Reach more than 1,300 fabric and quilt shops by advertising in six fabulous print issues of American Quilt Retailer magazine every year.
- Run FREE e-ads on every page of American Quilt Retailer magazine’s website when you advertise in 3 or more issues each year with an ad of 1/12 and larger (does not include Designer Marketplace).
Today’s marketplace is extremely competitive. It is imperative that you keep your name in front of the independent quilt shop owner often and on a consistent basis. Advertising to your retail clients helps to reinforce and bring to the forefront all your other marketing efforts. Make advertising a priority in your operating budget to make your company a priority in the retailers’ inventory budget.
American Quilt Retailer subscribers read and depend on the magazine as the source for business and industry news. The comment heard most often from our readers is, “I read it from cover to cover!” Our unique policy of keeping advertising and editorial content separate maintains the editorial integrity of the publication, which keeps readership and interest in the magazine high. Our readers know the editorial information they receive is unbiased and accurate, and they know the advertisers are the best resources in the industry—resources who are interested in keeping their clients up-to-date on their products.
American Quilt Retailer has many regular advertisers who have advertised in every issue for years and even a few who have given instructions to run their ads in every issue forever—or at least until further notice. Advertising in American Quilt Retailer works for them, and it can work for you, too.
