Renshaw have been working with Crafts Beautiful magazine for just over a year and have found the magazine to be a really effective way of getting our message to the crafting sector. We've used a combination of digital/social media along with more traditional adverts and product placement, both of which we believe to have been beneficial. Crafts Beautiful is a bright and modern publication which fits well with our target audience. They have provided us with a different vehicle through which to publicise our products as we traditionally have focussed on the sugarcraft area which is our core business.

Aceville's Special Projects department produces a range of annual bookazines – glossy publications that have a longer than-average shelf life. Distributed throughout popular retailers such as WH Smith, Tesco and Sainsbury's, the bookazines offer advertisers fantastic opportunities to extend their reach to crafters who desire collections of beautiful projects in one handy title.
The magbooks are also promoted with strong in-store advertising and investment in point of sales, ensuring a strong presence on newsstands.

Hot on the heels on the success of 2015's releases, Aceville is developing a fresh selection of magbooks, each one tailor-made to a specific audience. Accessible to new crafters, as well as those who are more confident with being creative, the publications not only look great on coffee tables, but are practical too.
