Why take out a print subscription to Drapers?
You’ll be kept up-to-date with everything going on in the fashion industry and how it affects your business. With fashion news and trends, sales information, practical retail advice, jobs and industry gossip, Drapers is a must-read every week.
How much is a subscription?
The latest price offers can be found on our subscription order form. Any discount displayed is the saving off the cover price. Please note that if subscribing from outside the UK and you choose to pay by credit card, your payment will be processed in UK £ Sterling at a recent rate of exchange – which may therefore be different to the £ Sterling published price.
What’s included in the subscription price?
The subscription price includes delivery to your office or home address (plus taxes where applicable).
Why is it easier to pay by Direct Debit?
Direct debit is a continuous payment method available in the UK and eliminates the need for you to remember to renew your subscription each year. You will be in complete control of your subscription and you have the option to pay quarterly or six-monthly as well as annually to help spread the cost of your subscription over the year.
How secure are my credit card details if I place my order online?
All the information you provide is encrypted (scrambled) using the industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology so that when you submit your order from the online form to our computer, nothing can be read as it travels down the secure line. Your details are then applied to our subscription system, which resides in a completely separate, unlinked area away from our internet pages.
Can I pay by invoice?
Yes, we can arrange for you to be sent an invoice. Please contact print subscription customer services.
Can I order a subscription for delivery to an address outside the UK?
Yes. But as the magazine is despatched from the UK, the subscription price is higher to cover the additional delivery costs. The latest overseas prices can be found on the subscription order form
Can I pay in a currency other than £ sterling?
We accept cheque payments in most currencies. If paying by credit card, your payment will be processed in UK £ Sterling at a recent rate of exchange – which may therefore be different to the £ Sterling published price. Please contact the print subscription customer services for other payment queries.
Can I order more than one subscription?
Yes, but if ordering online, you must complete a separate order for each magazine subscription you require. Alternatively please place your order via phone, email, fax or post.
Are discounts available for bulk subscriptions?

This will include details of your 10 digit subscriber number, when your subscription will start and end, and the address or addresses to which the issues will be sent.

When will my first issue arrive?
Your order acknowledgement will confirm details of the first issue you will be sent. This is normally within 14 days of placing your order.
What do you do with my personal information?
If I’m giving a gift subscription, do you send anything to the recipient?
Yes. If you place your order online you can choose if you’d like us to send an electronic gift card to your friend/colleague – this can be sent immediately or on a date of your choice.
