We are a family run local advertising business based in Dorset. We are very proud to say that many of the businesses that appeared in the very first edition of Dorset Publications 13 years ago, are still advertising in the directory today.

We now have a portfolio of twelve Dorset advertising publications with a total of 62,000 magazines distributed by Royal Mail and local people every month! We pride ourselves in monitoring the delivery personally to ensure all magazines are delivered door to door in their respective areas. Whether you are a sole trade plumber, electrician, gardener or have a company of 100 or more employees, we can promote your business to local people for you through advertising in our Dorset business directories.

With a range of fantastic rates, we also offer a FREE design service if you require help creating your perfect ad. Just follow the instructions on our contact form.
