Advertising in Preston - Your Brand in Preston's Hand

“We couldn’t believe how fast our impact was in the magazine – nearly 100 new people walked through our doors within the first week alone”

- Conrad Carter, Cuppa Caffe, St George's Shopping Centre.

Whether you’re a large enterprise, or a small independent start up, we are dedicated to celebrating the good promotions & services you offer. Get in touch today to see what opportunities we have available – to help get more customers through your doors. Note: space is limited in our physical publications as we insist on balancing good content with relevant adverts – so do get in touch sooner rather than later. We do also provide online advertising opportunities.

Street Team Distribution

Our team personally hand this conveniently sized magazine into the hands of Preston commuters, residents & students. It also falls on to the doormats of city-centre homes & organisations; those on the doorstep of your business.

We print / distribute up to 5000 units of each seasonal edition. *Please ask with respect to a specific publication as numbers, dates and themes may vary. We also create special editions; catering to specific large advertisers’ needs – get in touch to explore ideas.



Whilst Podio’s content is gender-neutral & aimed to the mass adult market in Preston, below are characteristics of who we believe to be some of our most frequent readers, based on feedback & observations. It is worth noting that the magazine is handed out to anyone appearing to be over the age of 17yrs. They are also available freely from our vendors.

Another testimonial

“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Podio on design & print elements. Having been the first time we’ve worked together on a campaign of this nature, we found them to be more than helpful, talented & committed. This was evidenced in the quality of work they produced on our behalf. We’d happily recommend them to any organisation requiring services of their nature.”

- Mark Whittle, Preston City Centre BID Manager
