Burlington's Biggest and Best Brochure Distributors

February 2013


You are getting this newsletter because I've seen your brochures in various displays and wanted to make sure you were aware of our great service.

Based in Burlington, we have been distributing brochures since 1982! We have over 700 brochure displays in Vermont, New York and New Hampshire. We have a warehouse on Pine Street, four vans and seven drivers.


In the past, all of our distribution programs were region wide only. Meaning, we have eighty displays in Greater Burlington, you have to supply us with enough brochures to fill all our locations and pay a flat fee for the whole region.


Now we are opening up twenty high traffic locations throughout the state to a pick and choose system. This will allow smaller clients a chance to get into some great locations for a reasonable fee.


We have negotiated with the Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce to place New brochure displays at the Burlington Boat House, The Waterfront Information Center and North Beach Campground. We will be handling all sales, warehousing and distribution to these locations.


In June 2013 we will be placing a New brochure display at Burlington's Hilton Hotel. PP&D will have an exclusive arrangement with this high-end property to host all distributed brochures.


We have a lot of other great locations, including Echo Science Center
The Sheraton and the Hampton Innavailable too. Stay tuned, we may be adding some more soon.


We have a full catalog that shows all our distribution programs in Vermont, New York and New Hampshire. Unfortunately, there is a waiting list for our Greater Burlington distribution program.


Our website PPDBrochure.com is a great resource for everything brochure; design tips, client lists, a PP&D history, and detail about other distribution methods. 


Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or thoughts.

Our first year of distributing brochures on the Lake Champlain Ferries was a great success.  


Did you know?   Ferry Boat 


Last year nearly a million passengers rode the ferries! 


The boats make over 50,000 trips per year with nine boats and three crossings!


We are selling a package for all boats: $650 for July - October (and we'll throw in November - April free). That's less than $16 per month per boat. Please contact me asap if you want to be included. We almost sold out last year.
