Championing Wales & the Borders
As the company behind walesandborders.com, we at Border Publishing have been serving the region of Wales and the Border counties since the autumn of 2003, when we launched our flagship magazine, Country & Border Life - now titled Welsh Border Life. Aimed at lovers of the region's rural lifestyle, the magazine became a hit on both sides of the Border and demand for copies quickly spread up and down Offa's Dyke, not to mention well into England, where regular visitors to the area could now get a more regular fix of the rural idyll that so enchants them.
As a two-man, spare-bedroom start-up, we've since grown to become the most respected magazine publisher in the region, providing local employment for a dedicated team of staff as well as an army of freelance writers, designers, sub-editors, photographers and illustrators, all sharing the same ethos which has been the cornerstone of the company's success - to be the best at what we do.
In the summer of 2009, we launched Welsh Coastal Life to enable us to champion both the coast and country of Wales and the Borders. Again, the clamour for copies underlined the love that exists for our region and the lifestyle to be found within.
With an ever-growing audience comes a duty to deliver, and here our belief is simple. The best publications offer readers the best content. The best content attracts the best readership, which gives advertisers the best return. This is why we invest a far greater percentage of operating costs into the quality of our content than is the norm for regional publishing, providing a win-win for readers and advertisers alike.
This ethos has been extended online with walesandborders.com - a totally free and truly reader-friendly forum that enhances our magazine brands in a way readers might not expect of a regional publisher.
As with all businesses, we suffered greatly at the hands of the COVID-19 pandemic, suspending publication of our magazines shortly after our April 2020 issues had hit the shelves. But a mix of creativity and sheer determination saw us return with a new double-cover format in August 2020 that's proving a hit with readers and advertisers alike.
