The Journal newsletter

Each Wednesday morning, we send a newsletter called The Journal to a list of 23,000+ people (1,350 paid members + 22,000 list subscribers). The Journal is THE place craft professionals and devoted hobbyists turn to find out what’s happening in the industry. It’s considered a “must read.”

Each issue has a single sponsor. Ad placement appears twice: a logo and link just below the masthead and a full-width image and paragraph of text at the halfway point. 

The Journal was professionally designed by Jacqueline Boltik of yellow brim and is optimized to render beautifully in all email clients. Your ad will be seen and read by our audience of devoted craft enthusiasts and professionals.

While I’m constantly trying to limit the amount of email I receive, the Craft Industry Alliance newsletter is on my short list of must-reads. It’s easy to scan and there’s always something in it that captivates me professionally and/or creatively. The Alliance team has an acute radar for stories that will enlighten the lives and businesses of makers as well as the courage and energy to investigate the events and attitudes that affect our industry.
