In an effort to maximize our return on precious advertising dollars, last year we began keeping track of how new customers said they found our gallery. Last year and again this year, the top response that customers have told us has been:  “We saw your ad in Door County Living.” The combination of great editorial content and wide distribution throughout Door County has made Door County Living an easy advertising choice for our business.

I highly recommend Door County Living for reaching our type of customer, both locals and visitors. The compelling stories and photos get beneath the surface of the real Door County and the people who make this such a special place. I know our ads get read because the Door County Living copies we receive fly out of here.

Advertising in Door County Living magazine has been a great investment. It is well designed, well written, AND gives us good exposure to readers who are interested in the arts. The Philanthropy Issue has been especially valuable, educating visitors and residents about the role of non-profits in Door County.

I appreciate when another business is involved in the community, like Door County Living is. They connect with me – they’re out and about, they’re involved, they listen…and they’re not corporate.
