How PL is Different
LONG HISTORY. DEVOTED READERSHIP.
When you’ve been around for 24 years, people know you. More than half of our 35,000 readers keep our magazine for at least a year, and many of our readers have kept every copy of PL since our launch in 1989.
NOT JUST AN AD.
Many of our advertisers have been with us for over ten years, and they keep coming back. Why? Because when you advertise with us, you become a part of the PL family and PL history, and you get results. Our customer service is unequalled, and we’re sure to mention our advertisers in more than just one place in the magazine or online.
NOSTALGIC AND CONTEMPORARY.
Our artful black and white design attracts attention and brings readers—and advertisers—back year after year. Readers remember us—and our advertisers—because we stand out from the crowd of clichéd color lifestyle magazines. Black and white has surprising impact in a world dominated by color.
BOTH A LOCAL AND WIDE AUDIENCE.
We’re available in 400 locations from the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula and Peninsula, to Richmond and Yorktown. You can find us at newsstands everywhere in the River Country, including doctors, dentists, visitor and welcome centers, inns and hotels, including the Tides Inn in Irvington, banks and realtors.
98% PICK UP.
98% of our newsstand copies are picked up by readers. We’re the only regional magazine that guarantees this percentage of pick-up.
We never miss our publication deadlines. When we promise a distribution date, we deliver.
Our website, pleasantlivingmagazine.com, offers selected editorial from our print edition, as well as new content.
