Does anyone know if there is any way to get a Press Kit or Press Release sent to a newspaper? I've been talking to our leisure living editor and she's considering putting in an article about Etsy, but it would be easier if she had info from them.

If there is such a thing I would be happy to send to some magazines over here if they can send to me first. I am not shy to do some shouting... we in UK need to shout to let others know about etsy.

I ended up on the home page...there's a link at the bottom..."press"...guess that's as good as it gets. I was hoping to be able to order a packet with photos and a really upbeat press release.

Thanks for helping spread the word about Etsy!

Thanks, wonderamy! I've been offline and just got back to read your message. Is there someplace to email the newspaper's name/address to be put on a snail mail list to get a press release...the sooner, the better, with the upcoming holidays!
