The deadline for advertising is a week before the copy deadline.

D I A R Y
The deadline for the diary is noon on the Wednesday after the copy deadline.

D E L I V E R Y
We go to press on the Monday morning ten days after the copy deadline. Magazines go out to our distributors on the Wednesday and Thursday, and they deliver them to subscribers through the weekend. We choose our press day so that the end of the weekend is always before the first day of the cover month.

Magazines go into local shops on or before the first day of the cover month.
