Getting featured in national newspapers can be a dream come true for many interior brands. But it can be tricky as you have to catch the journalist at the right time and your products have to be unique, relevant and preferably something the journalist hasn’t seen before. There are lots of newspapers out there so it can be a bit of a minefield trying to find the right ones that will fit with your brand. Journalists working on interior features for national newspapers come to Press Loft weekly to find inspiration for their next feature and download images to use. Last month Press Loft had over 27,000 downloads for over 800 different publications. To make it easier to know what newspapers have interior pages and what they generally feature, we have created a list of national newspapers that use Press Loft and feature interior pages so that you can hit the ground running when it comes to pitching your products to relevant newspapers.
