Celebrating Our 31st Anniversary !!
February 2015



  



Our first year publishing the BLUE MAP was a huge success!! We made lots of great changes to make it easier for tourists to find your business. Be sure to open one up and see the terrific new maps and updated design.

There is certainly a major advantage to being owned by a distribution company like PP&D. The BLUE MAP is now heavily distributed in six new regions in Northern Vermont and New York. See the side bar for details.

Since our BLUE MAPS are flying off the racks at all of these new locations, we will be printing an additional 10,000 in 2015 (40,000 more then 2013).

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


Sincerely,


Owner, PP&D Brochure Distribution
and BLUE MAP

 

Hi,

 

I am very excited to be starting my 6th BLUE MAP!   

I hope you checked out the map this year to see our reconfigured Greater Burlington map, improved map focus on the Lake Champlain Basin, and consolidated listings categories. The new Beverage Section reflects the burgeoning industries of breweries, wineries, cideries and distilleries in Vermont and their positive impact on tourism in the state. We will continue to innovate the map to meet new needs and markets. We appreciate your suggestions to improve BLUE MAP and our service.

 

I will be contacting each of you with information about the 2015 BLUE MAP and your 2015 contract. If you have questions or want to get started right away, please contact me at 802-922-1646 or kit@ppdbrochure.com.

 

Best, Kit

"Blue Map has proven to be an effective and cost-efficient way for City Market to reach tourists throughout Greater Burlington. Thousands of customers walk through our doors daily and many grab a Blue Map, making it a useful and well-read marketing brochure."

"We use the Blue Map literally every day as our primary go-to information source to help our guests get oriented to Burlington, plus all the points of interest and shopping in and around the city. Having the Inn on the map gives our guests confidence that they can venture forth and then easily find their way back."   

 

- Davis Family of Innkeepers 

 

  

"The Blue Map is an outstanding map / guide. Its listings are valued because they are comprehensive and include plenty of quality, unique Vermont-based businesses. I know it's the sort of publication that people keep because we seldom find them trashed."
