Three good reasons why you should
advertise in the... Writing
- The Journal offers readership appeal with more colour and an attractive, modern design.
- Highly cost effective advertising rates with the possibility of editorial support features.
- The opportunity to reach and communicate with some of the most informed collectors and opinion leaders in the traditional writing equipment markets.
The WES Journal has been published continuously for more than 25 years and is a valuable source of information and reference. It is produced three times a year and is sent to all members in the UK and overseas.
The Journal’s prime aim is to provide members with a wide range of accurate, stimulating and visually interesting information relating to the history, development, manufacture and use of all writing related equipment.
The Journal interacts with manufacturers and professional outlets for news, current activity and advertising support.
Members of the WES are, by definition, opinion leaders in the field of writing equipment world wide, with active interests in new and old products. Membership includes many of the world’s key manufacturers, dealers, auction houses and specialist collectors.
Most members are serious collectors of writing equipment, including: pens of all varieties, silver and gold pencils, stamp and letter related items, nibs, inkwells and letter openers. At least half the membership have a specific interest in fountain pens.
