Schools & Group Trips Welcome Folder

essential school visits planner

Our Schools & Group Trips Welcome Folder is the essential school visits planner. That’s why it can be found in every school in Scotland.  Regarded as the easiest and most effective way to reach the schools and youth group markets, it is a valuable planning tool for educational professionals responsible for organising group trips.

For your business, that represents an attentive interested niche market. The folders work hard; many different teachers read the same promotional messages over the 12 month life of a Schools Welcome Folder; it could be your advertisement or promotion that hits the mark!

Group Trips Scotland Website

To complement the Schools & Group Trips Welcome Folder, is an online resource for youth group trip organisers. Through this website, we provide group organisers with a monthly update of news from advertisers’ attractions. Pay us a visit.

Leaving aside the fact that Landmark Press is a fellow Inverness-shire business, I fully recommend advertising with Landmark Press for any business who rely on the tourist visitor in Scotland. Not only do we 100% trust the company to make sure our leaflets are displayed in the relevant areas, we also get a great return from advertising the Park in their Welcome to Scotland Guide which has an annum readership of over 1.5 million which is amazing! I would also advise any company to promote their business in the Bedroom Folders as we do, as again the ROI is excellent and we also know that we attract new visitors every year because we appear in the folders throughout the country.

Deep Sea World
Deep Sea World have used Landmark Press for a number of years and have always been impressed with their level of service. One of the ways we promote DSW is using their Schools Folder as it goes out to all the schools in the country and it guarantees us results. Landmark also distribute our leaflets because we trust them to always do a great job and they have never let us down. I would recommend them to any business working in the tourism sector.

Such a pleasure to work with! They take the stress out of advertising! We promote our business in all of their publications such as the School’s Folder, which we know gets our details out to a huge number of school’s throughout the country. I have no hesitation in recommending Landmark Press to the tourism sector.

Dynamic Earth has had the pleasure of working with Landmark Press for quite a few years now as we advertise in their publications and they have also previously distributed our site leaflets. The Welcome to Edinburgh Guide offers a great ROI as it has a distribution rate of over 1.5 million. An area where we are always keen to promote is into the school’s market and that is why we advertise in their school’s folder which goes out to every school. I would happily recommend the services of Landmark Press to any business in the tourism sector.

Brilliant! That’s all I can say about Landmark press. Our ROI is outstanding and their level of service is second to none!

Every school in Scotland, whether primary, secondary, private or state receives a copy , with larger schools receiving more than one. We also ensure each Director of Education has a copy.

We make sure that the folders are in schools before the Easter holidays so teachers have plenty time to plan their trips.

Your leaflet must be A4 finished size (either a single portrait A4 page or A3 folded to A4 portrait). Make sure you leave a margin of 15mm free of any vital information, on both sides, along the edge that will be punched during folder production.

No! We punch all leaflets during folder production.

No. It is only about 15% more expensive to print both sides and the impact is at least 100% greater! If a single side is sufficient space to promote your attraction team up with a neighbouring attraction and produce a joint leaflet. Alternatively produce separate leaflets and save around 12% each by arranging with your printer to have them printed at the same time.

Unfortunately not. Most printers reserve the right to supply up to 10% fewer leaflets than you have asked for. That can mean your leaflet not appearing in some copies of a folder. The way around this is to make it explicit in the contract with your printer that you will not accept fewer leaflets. Also tell them that you will accept any 'overs'!

Yes provided they are A4 finished size (see above) and are provided flat.
If you are using your racking leaflet for folder insertion we would strongly recommend you to ask your designer to adapt the design:

  • to work in a portrait format.
  • simplify or reduce the amount of information. Make sure you retain directions to your attraction, prices and opening hours.
  • consider using more or larger images.
  • Change the sequence of paragraphs to work logically in the new design. This should not be expensive and will definitely enhance your impact in the folder.

'Less' is definitely 'more' in the context of a folder.
To help you get the most impact from your leaflet we have produced a Good Leaflet Design Information Sheet. Due to production constraints we regret that we cannot accept previously folded leaflets or leaflets that require to be unfolded to an A4 size.

Yes. But please ensure that the boxes are clearly marked. To help your printer meet our specifications for leaflets we have produced an Information for Printers pdf.

All bookings must be made by the beginning of September to appear in the coming year's edition, which is on display for 12 months from the first week in April.

Leaflets must be with us by mid November to guarantee insertion into the correct folder edition. However we will accept leaflets as early as you are able to supply them. Ask your printer to send them to us direct.

Invoices will be issued on 31 December with 30 day payment terms.

Yes, we have a lot of contacts and are happy to advise you on designers and printers. Call 01479 841 900 or email us for more information.

We use paper from sustainably managed forests for folder covers and editorial pages as this is more environmentally responsible than using recycled paper. We encourage accommodation outlets to dispose of old folders in an environmentally responsible manner. Every leaflet you supply will be used by thousands of visitors over 12 months , making Landmark Press folders an exceptionally environmentally friendly way of promoting your attraction! To help you get the most impact from your leaflet we have produced a Good Leaflet Design Information Sheet, in conjunction with print management company Tartan Ink.
