Signature Media has expanded its custom publishing arm with two new titles: Vacations & Travel Essential Guide to Monaco, and the Signature Luxury Travel & Style Ultimate Guide to Niigata, Japan.
Signature Media established its custom publishing arm in 2020 while two of its travel magazines were paused during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the time, Signature Media CEO and Group Editor Cathy Wagstaff said “During the height of COVID-19 we made the difficult decision to pause the publication of two of our travel magazines; we instead used this time to launch our now rapidly-growing custom publishing arm. This new business extension enables us to help our clients tell their stories in a visually stunning and engaging way.”
Signature Media’s move into custom publishing for key clients is a good example of how publishers can leverage their skills and audience to collaborate with brands outside of their existing magazine titles.
The latest of the custom publishing titles – the 96-page Essential Guide to Monaco ebook – is produced in association with Visit Monaco, and brings the principality to life through stories, photography, and videos.
“Working with Cathy Wagstaff and the Signature Media team is always a pleasure, and on this project, they really went above and beyond to create something exceptional. We are so impressed with the quality of their work and the end result speaks for itself,” said Alison Roberts-Brown, Regional Director for the Monaco Government Tourist Bureau.
To further entice readers to download the ebook, Signature Media is giving them the chance to win one of six Le Distillerie de Monaco gin gift packs, valued at $150 each.
The multimedia Signature Luxury Travel & Style Ultimate Guide to Niigata, Japan ebook brings this pocket of Japan reveals Niigata’s seasonal highlights, culinary traditions, arts and crafts, and must-see attractions.
Produced in association with Niigata Prefecture, the 26-page ebook covers the outdoor art installations and festival of Echigo-Tsumari; theatrical, musical and culinary traditions on the island of Sado; what it’s like to travel on the Setsugekka sightseeing train; the musical events to add to your calendar, and more.
