If you’re considering investing in a Press Loft account, you’ll probably want to know what the people who already use the platform really think of it. What does a Press Loft review look like? We’ve used the platform for nearly ten years, so we are pretty well-placed to share the pros and cons of using it. But we have also scoured the internet to bring you the good, bad and everything in between. Along with our take as long time users.
TLDR: Press Loft reviews are mostly positive, because the team are really helpful and the platform works. It’s really useful for start-up interiors businesses and a good asset for larger ones. But make sure to check out our Indie Interiors Press Office too – you might be surprised.

If you’re launching a new business, building brand recognition is essential as this Press Loft review demonstrates.
One of the best ways to do this is get your assets in front of key journalists and Press Loft has almost 20,000 of them ready and waiting for your content.
All you need to make a great first impression are brilliantly composed high res imagery, decent product descriptions and an informative boilerplate. Sounds easy enough but make sure you review each of your assets before posting them online.
You never get a second chance at a first impression so check your image sizes, product details and make sure your boilerplate zings.
If you need any help with any of these, you can always drop us a line here.
The Even Better
“Where would I be without Press Loft!!!
I’ve been using their images for literally years. They make it so easy to complete features for national interiors magazines when all the PRs are tucked up in bed.
“As a freelance interior stylist, I’m always juggling features, shoots and kids and being able to get the right images instantly – whatever the time of day or night, is a complete game-changer.
“Press Loft is also a great place to discover new brands I’ve not heard of before and instantly contact the PR for that brand – no more going around the houses trying to find the right person to send you a high res image- as is often the case with companies not used to this easy setup.
“I can’t imagine a working world without Press Loft there, helping me save time and making my life so much easier.
“From one not so stressed out Interior stylist thank you Press Loft, keep up the good work.”
This Press Loft review echoes the experience of our Account Director Sam, who first used Press Loft as a time-poor journalist. For her, the ability to download great quality, high res images any time of day (or night) was a godsend.
As a PR agency, we try to work flexibly so our clients never miss out on any opportunities but having Press Loft as a back-up is ideal.
With working from home on the rise thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, and traditional office hours seemingly a thing of the past, Press Loft’s 24/7 availability is needed now more than ever. For journalists, PRs and most importantly – clients.
“Learn to reply messages and feedback to start with!!”
Once upon a time, Press Loft were a little slow at coming back, but that has improved massively recently.
Perhaps we’re in a really lucky position that we have two very attentive account managers looking after us, and from niggles with image uploads to personalising a press office, the team at Press Loft are seemingly always on hand to help. In our experience anyway.
“I currently use pressloft.com to send press release out to pr and press contacts. Does anyone know of any other company online that provides a similar service as theres is a good service but a little pricey?
While Press Loft pricing might be considered expensive by some, when you consider what you get in return, in our opinion, it’s a pretty good value.
Press Loft has a simple and clear pricing policy with its premium package costing £350 per month. That includes 1,000 images in your online press room, two press releases and one influencer collaboration.
Compare that to the costs of a full PR retainer, which can cost over £2,000 a month. Of course, with a retainer you’ll be getting a completely different level of service, but if you are on a tight budget it’s easy to see why Press Loft is so appealing.

As well as a fully managed Press Loft account, we include a host of other added benefits, not least exposure to our carefully curated network of journalists, influencers and editors.
