Gift Guide Participation

We are so excited to launch the next Handmade Men Gift Guide for Spring 2014!

This is a great opportunity to get your shop and your products in front of our growing audience of qualified customers who already know the value of artisan work and are focused on buying for men.

Handmade Mens Gift Guide

>>> When you participate, here’s what you’ll get…

  • An exclusive full color listing including big 400×400 graphic that shows 4 of your favorite items in a lomo-style layout with a text blurb and link to your shop.
  • High quality PDF guide is 100% free to all Handmade Men visitors and will be featured on the front page of the site for the duration of the season in addition to being promoted to our email list and on our social media platforms.
  • A dedicated link for you to share with your customers, fans, and friends so that they can get their own copy for free right from your website, blog, Etsy shop, or email message.
  • High-value presentation with 3D cover design (image shown above is a sample).

To ensure that each shop gets as much attention as possible, we will be offering a very limited number of spots each season. There’s no better way to reach out to a qualified target market at such a low price!
