View all opportunities 

Each year Spring Fling produces a high quality brochure to outline everything visitors need to know about their visit to the event and to Dumfries & Galloway.

Included throughout the brochure in our route sections and in our special advertising section, are advertisements by local and national events, organisations, tourist attractions and businesses.

The full-colour brochure details all our studio and programme information, including what to expect in artists’ studios, details on evening openings, activities for families and information on getting around the region as well as other Upland projects.

Why advertise in the Spring Fling brochure? 

The brochure is the event’s primary marketing tool. Every inch of it is carefully prepared, from the commissioning of a different cover illustration each year to the proofing and distribution. Around 10,000 copies will be produced this year. These are distributed nationally and internationally using a network of experienced distributors such as our participating artists and makers, paid manpower in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast and Carlisle and much more.

The cost of print production continues to rise. However, we believe it is important to make sure that our primary promotional tool remains consistent in terms of quality. This year, advertising rates have risen slightly to take into account the rising cost of delivering all promotional elements of the event; but we are pleased to be able to offer a discount for any repeat advertisers who have placed advertisements in any SF brochure from 2019 to 2022.

As a community interest company, we rely on the support from local, national and international groups, small businesses, artists and makers, tourist operators and fellow organisations to continue to advertise and promote their work through our brochure advertising. Our commitment to them is our repeat advertiser discount which we hope is helpful! 

The layout of Spring Fling 2023 brochure will be similar to that of the 2022 brochure which you can view here: http://www.spring-fling.co.uk/brochure/
