Search Tips


Finding items in our store

You can perform a basic search by typing your search query into the search box. However, this may sometimes bring up inexact results. The best search method is with " " (quotation marks) around the words you are searching for as this will result in an exact match.
Small words such as "id" may not be found in a search. In this instance, it is best to browse through the relevant i-D category in our store.
See below for further help with finding specific items. If you have any questions, please contact us.

How do I find a magazine from a specific month or year?
For the exact date of the item you are looking for, search (ideally with " " around words for an exact match).
For example:
"December 2008"
Some searches may not be found even though the item may be available in our store.
An example would be: "Woman's Weekly 1996" (with " "). This will not bring up any matches because those words do not appear in that exact phrase in our shop. Instead, searching for Woman's Weekly 1996 (without " ") will give better results. (Optionally click on the "Categories" list photo above the search results and you can browse manually in the category for the magazine you require).
