  • 'For Release Before (date)'
  • 'For Release After (date)'

Enter one of these instructions at the top of your press release so journalists know when the story can be released. Most press releases will use ‘For Immediate Release' but if you are launching a new product you may wish to use ‘For Release After (date)' or if you are holding a promotional event ‘For Release Before (date)' may be more appropriate.


Naturally the heading should come next - it should be attention-grabbing and ideally 8 words or less in length.
