Practical Publishing International Pty publishes seven craft titles, comprising four papercraft titles and in November 2012 acquired the veteran Australian publisher, Creative Living Media, including a portfolio of three quilting, embroidery and textile titles.
Its Australian presence was first established in Brisbane, Queensland in 2006 to build on the group’s successful record of exporting magazines to Australia and as a gateway to the Asia-Pacific market and China’s craft manufacturing base. The company’s first fully localised title, Australian Simply Cards, was launched in Australia and New Zealand in 2009, featuring local designers and the latest products and trends from the region. The magazine brought a fresh promotional approach to an established market and quickly became the region’s fastest growing cardmaking and papercraft title.
The company now publishes papercraft titles: Australian Simply Cards, Australian Papercraft Essentials and the region’s first papercraft kit-based magazine, Cardmaking in Easy Steps, which is also exported to the UK and USA markets. It also publishes Love Cardmaking, Down Under Quilts, Creative Expressions, Down Under Textiles and Love Sewing.

The company works closely with companies and brands to help support and develop their businesses. Our passionate team includes Australian craft enthusiasts, who are all deeply in touch with the market and therefore understand what crafters want from magazines, helping to produce the most on-trend and engaging content in the sector.If you would like to find out more about Practical Publishing International Pty visit the website
