Here are a couple of testimonials from two of our many delighted advertisers...
"Gift Focus is a fantastic trade publication and we're always happy to be involved with the magazine. We sell to a lot of gift shops and so the magazine gives us a chance to maintain our profile in this marketplace. We often recommend Gift Focus to suppliers and other card publishers looking to target the gift shop market."
Jeremy Piercy, Blue Eyed Sun
"Gift Focus is a professional publication offering lots of exciting advice to the retail buyer. This means that our adverts will be seen.
Our business has grown in each of the last 15 years. As a small company we can't justify spending to track the impact of advertising. However, we do ask new customers where they first found out about us. Gift Focus magazine is high on the list where new acquisitions are concerned. Also reinforcing our message to existing customers cannot be underestimated.
We've calculated the net financial impact each new customer has on our bottom line. Advertising in Gift Focus magazine has proved to be a cost effective opportunity to grow our customer base."
Alan Edwards, Best Kept Secrets
"Over the many years I've been advertising with Gift Focus Classic Canes has always received a positive response. We've received some good enquiries and would recommend advertising with the magazine. "

Steve Davies, Director, Joe Davies
"I just wanted to express how delighted we were at the Bath House with the recent editorial coverage we have had from you. In particular this May issue was brilliant and took my breath away. We have immediately had a great response to it. The magazine I believe is the best quality and best laid out magazine of this particular sector. It makes it hard to think about advertising elsewhere."
Nigel Brooks, The Bath House Ltd
"Pins and Ribbons are absolutely delighted with both the contact from staff at Gift Focus and the orders and enquiries that we receive after advertising within the magazine, we normally find out we have been featured in a publication from potential stockists - the phone rings off the hook on the days after the mag is first sent out"
