For information on advertising in The Country Register of Indiana, follow these links or scroll down the page.
The Country Register Publications were designed to be a major link connecting
interested customers with all of the Country, Victorian, Craft and Antique shops
available in the state as well as shows and special places to eat and stay. Each
publication is full of stories and useful information for readers interested
in the various shopping possibilities and activities going on locally. The information
is presented in a much less intimidating fashion than other reference books and
newspapers available for the industry. It also serves to inform the public of
upcoming events in the country and in the craft industry.
The Country Register gives shop owners a place to promote their shops, inform their customers, and even try out their writing skills, if they so desire. The publication makes a handy, carry-it-with-you guide and the layout makes the use of maps less necessary, guiding the reader through each state according to areas of the state and within a city. The entire purpose of our publication is to increase public awareness of the great number of shops and services available to them within the state.

We offer our contractual advertisers discounted prices. Advertisers with an Annual Contract receive our "Six Consecutive Issue" rate, which is 10% off our rate card prices each issue. The six ads do not need to be identical; ad sizes and ad copy can change at any time and the discount still applies.
Standard rates include normal ad layout and typesetting which can include
borders and clip art. Non-standard items such as original graphics, logos, calligraphy,
etc. may be arranged as can grayscale or original photos. (Call for pricing.)
Please allow ample time for us to provide non-standard services.
