We accept bookings by email or by phone as long as we’re able to obtain written confirmation, digital or physical prior to publication. We send contract confirmations via Docusign for digital signature approval. We’ll need one of those before we go to print. Booking can take place up to the artwork deadline for supplied artwork and up to the editorial deadline if artwork is to be created and proofed.

Deadline Policy

We publish over 20 publications a year and there is always a deadline looming! To help us provide the best service to clients we schedule editorial deadlines, and supplied artwork deadlines that allow us to create designs and proof them back to clients before the critical hour. For gallery and places we publish for distribution on the 1st/15th of the month. Our long suffering printers therefore need our files over a week before that. That means that we set the artwork and editorial deadlines to allow us enough time to construct the magazine. Your timely help in getting us your content on time to meet them is enough to get a hug from any staff member.


Fear not, if you only have Microsoft word and pictures from the Internet, we can help. At factory we help brands without ad agency support create professional standard artwork for use in our publications. Better still, as long as we can work to get a design approved in less than three revisions there is no cost, it’s included in your booking fee. Other projects are charged at our hourly rate. Completed artwork should be emailed to artwork@factory.je


We have structured discounts for multiple bookings. In most cases three placements receive a 10% discount, 6 months of bookings receive a 20% discount and annual bookings a 30% discount from individual placement rates. In addition we offer a further 5% discount for pre payment of packages.


We pioneered the ‘reader pull’ distribution model in Jersey. Our network of stands across the island and retail and coffee shop network mean that wherever and whenever you have a break in your day factory publications shouldn’t be far away. We have stands in 50 locations and distribute to another 250 by hand via our Distro service. Gallery is distributed 6 times a year on the 1st of February, April, June, August, October and December. . Places is distributed 11 times a year on the 15th of each month besides December. In addition to stand distribution, Places is distributed to a list of the 6500 Jersey residential postboxes and 1000 business adddresses. Our What’s On publication is distributed exclusively airside at the airport and at the harbour, in addition to distribution to all island hotels and restaurants and in great volume through Visit Jersey all year for tourists. If you’re in need of a copy of any factory publication or you’re a venue that’s run out you can email our distribution staff at distro@factory.je and they’ll pick up the message and get them to you ASAP.

Editorial policy

The editorial policy of all our publications is one that takes an educated, non stuffy modern approach to journalism. Mild irreverence combined with a tongue in cheek informed opinion mean we like passionate journalists who can articulate traditional media reporting with a pinch of salt and pepper. When we established Gallery it was our belief the wider readership for Jersey media would embrace a media vehicle that was less ‘establishment’ than those that preceded it. Hopefully 180 issues down means a couple of people are with us.


We cover events at no cost for any client on our rosta for inclusion in the events section of Gallery or relevant Places edition / online. Non clients may pay a nominal £225 charge to cover the cost of the photographer and a half page events space. If you would like a copy of the photos you are welcome to use them after the magazine is released as long as there is a credit.

Forward features

We arrange a list of themes in December each year for the following year. Themes and editorial guides are available on the relevant page for each publication.
