CapeMade Field Guide :: second edition

Last winter, we LoveLiveLocal gals found ourselves with a little free time and a lot of inspiration sourced from the local entrepreneurs and business owners who work so hard to keep Cape Cod vibrant and unique. There was a gap, we realized, in centralized information for locals and visitors alike who value supporting the economic fabric of the place they call either home or destination.

And so the first edition of The CapeMade Field Guide was born. We set out to develop a go-to resource for discovering local products and businesses as well as unique destinations and experiences across Cape Cod – putting on paper the ideas and the vibe we strive to create with our monthly emails, our social media presence, and our LoveLocal Fests.

With the help of graphic designer Tim Graham and Hyannis’ Sunderland Printing, we produced a book beautiful enough {we think, anyway} to leave on your coffee table or keep in your bag at all times for a handy reference.  Ten thousand copies made their way to Chambers of Commerce, businesses, hotels, coffee shops, boutiques, realtors and festival goers throughout the year.

Our second edition is underway for 2016; we are accepting advertisers and business listings now so let us know right away if you want to be included – you can find advertising details here. Produced with our standard amount of love, the Field Guide is an amazing value and is affordable for a range of businesses.

This year’s CapeMade Field Guide promises the same great information with refreshed editorial content to inspire your Cape Cod adventures. Use the Field Guide to get lost, on purpose, using area overviews and listings of locally produced goods and the businesses that support them to assist you. Plan your itinerary using a clear, easy-to-follow map {sponsored by CapeAbilities!}, and even get our suggestions for day trips.

It has been a thrill to spot people using their guides on the go, handing them out to visiting friends, and seeing them snapped up faster than we can put them down at coffee shops. Look out for the 2016 edition in early spring, with fresh content and even more advertisers and listed businesses!
