The Manufacturers Directory

What is the TMP Manufacturers Directory?
It's a listing of hobby manufacturers, located here.
My company isn't listed. How can I get listed?
Send an email to julia@theminiaturespage.com with all or part of the following information:
  • full name of your company
  • address or location
  • website URL
  • phone number
  • fax number
  • email address
  • brief description of your products
  • forms of payment accepted (if credit cards, please list the cards you accept)
  • list of foreign agents/distributors
My company is listed. How can I update the information?
Send an email to julia@theminiaturespage.com listing the changes you want made.
I don't want to list my email address.
Then tell us something like "email unlisted at company request" - that way, we'll remember not to add it in the future...
Why do I need to list individual credit cards?
Our readers can search companies by credit card - for example, to get a list of all companies that take Visa. If your listing only says "we accept all major credit cards," it won't show up when a search is made for "Visa"...
How do I get listed as a company that accepts PayPal?
Mention "PayPal" in your Forms of Payment Accepted.
Do I have to pay anything to get listed?
No.
Can any company get a listing?
If they are a manufacturer or publisher in the hobby, or they produce a product of interest to the hobby (such as paints and brushes), then yes. We define a "manufacturer" to include:
  • those who make metal, resin or plastic miniatures
  • those who make metal, resin or plastic kits used with miniatures
  • publishers of rules and similar hobby publications
  • makers of tabletop accessories, such as buildings or terrain
  • manufacturers of paints, glues, tools, and other useful items
Will you list retailers?
Generally speaking, no. An exception is made for retailers which are a source for hard-to-find items, such as a store that is the local agent for an overseas manufacturer.
The listing for such-and-such company is out-of-date.
You can email an update to editor@theminiaturespage.com.
The URL for such-and-such company isn't working.
Please let us know by emailing us at editor@theminiaturespage.com.
The phone numbers or email addresses for such-and-such company are bad.
Please tell us by emailing editor@theminiaturespage.com.
Why do you list dead companies?
It's often useful to let people know which companies are gone. Also, we try to provide information on the current availability of an extinct manufacturer's product lines, if they are still on the market.
My company doesn't make such-and-such product anymore. Can you remove that information from our listing?
We prefer to provide information on the availability (and non-availability) of all of your current and former product lines.
