Gift Shop® Plus accepts and encourages product submissions for editorial consideration in each of its quarterly issues, as well as its annual special issues.
To stay informed on the latest product calls for upcoming issues, be sure to sign up to receive newsletters and product calls. There is a sign up form on the home page of Gift Shop Plus.
All products submitted for editorial inclusion must be uploaded through the website in order for Gift Shop Plus to obtain the proper permissions to use the images. Please note that all quarterly issues will have a different product submission link than the special issues. All submission forms will open when we are accepting submissions and will also provide details on the deadline. Once the deadline has passed, the submission form will close until we open up the submission portal again for a future issue.
You can bookmark the submission form for the quarterly publications, so you can check back at your convenience to see if the portal is open for an upcoming issue.
Note: For all specialty issues, please utilize the link provided in the product call that will be sent out when the submission portal opens. Read on for helpful hints on submitting products and also what to have ready ahead of time.
Prior to submitting, identify the products you wish to submit. Preparing this in advance will help save you time.
If you are submitting numerous images, please feel free to place all the images in one Dropbox folder (or other file sharing program), organized by sub-folders with the category you are submitting products for. Additionally, you can include a Word document, PDF, Excel, or CVS file that provides the product names and descriptions. Please be sure that image files are noted on that document so Gift Shop Plus may easily identify and print the correct product name. To alleviate any confusion, we do request that image file names are submitted with your company name followed by the product name. For example, Company Name_Product Name.jpg (or png, or tiff).
If you have any difficulties or questions on how to submit products for editorial consideration, please feel free to contact Debbie Eisele, managing editor.
