Why Advertise in The WC Press?
The WC Press has been West Chester’s favorite resource for learning about people, events and businesses in the local community. We pride ourselves on introducing our readers to their next favorite restaurant, non-profit, or artist, and we do all this with the support of our advertisers. Their sponsorship makes it possible for us to do what we do, and in return they get a valuable return on their investment: advertising, editorial coverage, social media promotions and more. To find out some more specifics about advertising in The WC Press, consult this page, or reach out to us today!

Frequently Asked Questions
Once a month, right in the beginning of the month.
How do you determine your advertising rates?
The good news is, yes, we offer lots of discounts! (We know that’s what you were getting at, right?) Your rates are determined by both the length of your commitment and your method of payment. Every six months you commit to, you’ll save 12.5% per ad. Give us a credit card to automatically charge each month; save 15%. Wanna be a baller and pay for the duration of your contract up front? Boom—save 25%!
How many magazines do you print?
We print 5,000 copies. To put that in perspective: imagine a very big pallet, covered in magazines, stacked chest high. We also get between 8 to 10,000 readers on the digital edition of the magazine each month.
Where does the magazine get distributed?
The magazine is distributed to more than 250 locations throughout West Chester, which is far more places than we’re going to list here. So, if you’re interested in specifics, check our list by clicking here.
Do you offer subscriptions?
We don’t offer subscriptions because they tend to be quite expensive, which just doesn’t seem to make sense for a free magazine. However, we do offer a free, digital subscription to our magazine, because people seem to like free stuff. You can sign up by clicking here.
Who is your target demographic?
Most of our readers live in the 19380 and 19382 zip codes and are between the ages of 25-50. Of course, we also ship a few dozen magazines to our grandmothers’ retirement communities in Florida every month—they’re our most dedicated readers.
How many people does your magazine reach?
According to Wikipedia, the borough of West Chester is home to 18,461 people. That’s roughly 10,000 people FEWER than the number who read our magazine any given month. (Short Answer: around 28,000 people)
What other services do you offer?
We’re a full-service media company. Need a new logo? Want help running your social media? Not happy with your website? We’ve got you covered. Let us know you’re if interested, and we’ll find a time to sit down for a free consultation by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
All advertising packages in The WC Press include one complimentary design. So, if you don’t have access to a professional designer, it doesn’t matter! We’ll work with you to develop your ad from concept to proof and we await your approval on the final design before anything is printed. You’re welcome to make simple changes to your ad every month, (changing dates, swapping a picture, etc) but there will be an additional $50 charge for each new ad design. If you think you’re interested in having us design a brand new ad for your every month, we suggest you opt into what we call The Design Package, which includes unlimited ad changes, for a 10% upcharge on the total cost of your advertising. You simply elect into the package when you sign up to advertise.
