However large or small your business, we can help you to spread the word about it to local residents — and the many thousands of people who visit our beautiful bay every year.  

St Ives Local is delivered door to door throughout the TR26 and TR27 postcode areas — St Ives, Hayle, and surrounding villages — including both residential and business addresses.

We also distribute our magazines to shops, restaurants, coffee shops, community spaces, tourist information centres, and other outlets in St Ives Bay and beyond, to help you reach an even wider audience.

The magazine’s varied and quality content, including a comprehensive What’s On section, ensures that readers regard St Ives Local as a valuable source of local information. They like to keep the magazine close at hand after the initial read, so your advert is still at the forefront of people’s minds throughout the two-month shelf life of each issue.

Have a look at our rate card to find out about the prices and sizes of the advert spaces we offer. Discounted rates are available if you book for three or more issues. By maintaining a constant presence in the magazine, you’ll be at the forefront of your customers’ minds when they’re ready to buy your product or service.

You’re welcome to supply your own artwork, but we can design your advert if you prefer. And if you’re interested in booking a full-page advertising feature, we’ll create lively and engaging copy to tell the story of your business.
