As the longest-established marketing magazine in Chester, we deliver our six local magazines (Chester City, Huntington and Boughton, Great Sutton and Stanney Oaks, Vicars Cross and Guilden Sutton, Upton and Mollington and Saughall) to 26,000 homes across the area.
Advertising in Chester Handbooks gets your business seen by potential customers, those most likely to use your service or buy your product.
Whether it’s a long-term advertising campaign based on a full page ad or a smaller investment with a quarter size, we’ve got the space to ensure your business is seen and heard to get you results.
Back in 2005, the Layder family launched a local magazine featuring local business adverts, community news, local causes and with an overall aim to bring local businesses and people together. The first issue, named the ‘Huntington Handbook’ was published in April 2005 and was delivered to 1,400 residents by David Layder personally.
Fast forward 16 years to 2021 we are proud to have six local handbooks with 26,000 copies dropping through letterboxes in and around Chester each and every month.
We understand how busy life is, especially when you’re running your own business, which is why we can do all the design work for you if you don’t have an existing advert. We can even start you off with a new brand if you don’t have one! We’ll make the process from booking to seeisng your ad in print as seamless as possible.
And we don’t just print the magazine! Whether it’s printing of leaflets, banners, flyers, branded merchandise or pamphlets, we can fulfil what your business needs to thrive.
“I have found that placing a half page colour advertisement got my message out and is a great way to raise my profile. It allows to me to target homes and businesses in certain areas.
The advert has a massive advantage over newspaper through artwork and photographs, which I can change at no extra charge!”
“After supplying Chester Handbooks with our leaflets they were promptly delivered to the agreed area. Within a few days of the leaflet drop we had an enquiry for a wet room. We would highly recommend Chester Handbooks.”
