Our name – Offstone – dates back to the days when members of our team worked together in newspapers and ‘off stone’ was the moment at which an edition was finalised for printing. The term comes from the old days, when a slab of stone or metal on which the type was set was used to align the text.
While our roots are in newspapers and magazines, our heart is in communication. While the core of our business is in-house and client magazines, we produce a diverse portfolio of printed publications for a wide variety of industries, interests and clients right across the UK and beyond. Utilising the unique experiences of our team, we also have a long track record of producing results through marketing, public relations, copywriting, web design, graphic design, print buying, and lots more.
We’re recognised as one of the most versatile magazine publishers around, producing multiple in-house titles including Appetite, Northern Golfer, The Northumbrian, Lakes and Cumbria Today, and Tyne to Tweed. We also write, design, produce, and have produced in recent years, successful titles for clients including the Morgan Sports Car Club, Visit County Durham, Lusso, Longhirst Hall Golf Course, Close House, Enjoy Tees Valley, the North East England Chamber of Commerce, NE1 Ltd, Port of Tyne, Newcastle International Airport, Lloyd BMW, Lookers Audi, Wynyard Hall, Northumberland Coast AONB, United Carlton and more.
Meanwhile, our PR, copywriting, brand marketing and creative design teams innovate to communicate – spreading the word about our clients across multiple PR and marketing channels in print and online through traditional methods and the latest trends.
Build it, and they will not necessarily come. Communicate it, and they just might.
