For Our Subscribers
Insert advertising, mailed with issues of the Blacksmith’s Journal, gives you a convenient way to learn about new products and services without ad space taking up room in the valuable pages you’re collecting for your reference library. When you contact one of our advertisers to inquire about their product, let them know you saw the insert ad mailed with one of your issues.

For Our Advertisers
The Blacksmith’s Journal offers a unique way of advertising for blacksmith related products and services. Insert advertising is an effective way to put advertising dollars to work. Your color ad is printed on 5-1/2” x 8-1/2" card stock making both sides available to showcase your product, advertise two products at once, or provide an order form. The ad card is inserted in the plastic bag along with monthly issues of the Journal. Since the advertising isn’t shelved inside the publication, your message to our subscribers can be used to mail in with their order, use as a business card to contact you, or give to an interested friend.

Here are some additional places your insert ad will be seen:

  • Trade Shows & Conferences: Every trade show or conference we attend, your company is “attending” too because our current advertisers are promoted on a display of advertisement cards at our trade show table. Click on Events to see where we are planning to be this year.
  • Orders Shipped: Ad cards are put inside packages shipped every few days. Because we get orders from our busy Internet traffic and merchandise sales from customers outside our subscription base, your advertising dollars go beyond our regular subscribers.
  • Links: Our advertisers can be found on the Links page of this web site. If you are an advertiser and would like to check on the details, click on Requirements, Deadlines, and Rates to find out more.
