Spring is special section season

Spring is special section season

The sweet smell of freshly mowed grass and the warm sun on your shoulders means that spring is here.

And with it comes two special sections produced by your very own island newspapers.

On April 10, the 2019 Home and Garden edition will be inserted inside the Islands’ Sounder, Journal of the San Juans and Islands’ Weekly. Inside, you will hear about ways to use solar, what the local garden clubs are up to and how to reduce the use of plastics. We have a variety of advertising opportunities for local businesses. Get your information out in front of our more than 6,000 subscribers.

A few days before Memorial Day weekend, our award-winning visitors guide Springtide will hit the streets. We distribute the glossy magazine on the ferries and in chambers of commerce, hotels, inns and visitor information centers along the I-5 corridor. It is also online for the entire year.

The magazine has information about all of the ferry-served islands and stories about the various seasonal activities for which the San Juans are known. It also has a wide variety of advertisements from island establishments. We are currently selling the “glossy” ads that are in the front and back of the magazine. We also have room for color or black and white spots in the interior of the guide.

Do you have a fun story idea? We encourage feedback and story suggestions for how we can make these specials more engaging for both visitors and locals alike.

And if you haven’t already, check out our recent relocation guide The Book of the San Juans, which published in February. They have the same distribution as Springtide, so next time you are on the ferry, look through its pages. The cover features a local family.
