All major image formats accepted, 300 DPI required for best results. When using the color black, please use CMYK values – any black used must be C=0, M=0, Y=0 and K=100. Please send artwork to email@example.com.
Advertising artwork deadlines
The 15th of each month (if the 15th falls on a weekend, then the deadline is the following business day)
Any ads requested/sent past the deadline will be accepted & printed at the discretion of the Publisher.
Note: we do not publish in January. Our December + January issue is printed and distributed in December.
Would you like to run ads every other month? Would you like to upgrade your ad size at any time for a fixed rate? Block ad buys? We’re flexible, but please contact us early if you’d like to arrange a custom advertising package.

MEDIA SPONSORSHIP TRADES
We sometimes give discounts and even free ads to charity events in exchange for media sponsorship. Please contact email@example.com at least one month in advance of the deadline. The more promotional material we can get our logo on (flyers, posters, websites), the cheaper the ad is (and vice versa).
