Search Press has become the exclusive wholesaler for David & Charles titles in the UK. Books will be distributed from the Search Press warehouse and sold through its network of agents. David & Charles' sales and distribution to the book trade and international customers through GBS will be unaffected by the change.
"We're excited to be working with the Search Press team and representatives to benefit from their fantastic reach into the independent art and craft trade," says Bel Youldon, commercial director at David & Charles. "We look forward to supporting them in the sales to existing accounts that know our books well, as well as new customers to David & Charles books."
Martin de la Bedovere, managing director of Search Press adds: "We're delighted to have an exclusive relationship to sell David & Charles books to the independent art and craft trade. One in every three craft titles purchased in the UK is now available through Search Press distribution and there is no better place to source the UK's leading art and craft books."
The two companies will be taking a combined stand at CHSI Stitches from 2020. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of Search Press. The publisher has a variety of initiatives planned to celebrate its birthday, including free downloads of popular craft books at www.searchpress.com
