- Your ad will appear in both the printed magazine and in the digital edition. Within the digital edition any website URLs included in your ad will be "live."
- The rates apply only to camera-ready ads. There is a $30 setup charge for ads that are not camera-ready.
- You may request specific page placement for an ad. We will do the best we can to meet your needs, but we will not guarantee preferred page placement unless you pay an additional fee of $100.
- Payment in U.S. funds must accompany submission of advertising materials unless you are committing to a one-year contract, in which case we will invoice you.
- Reservations are not necessary unless you want inside cover or back cover positioning. For all other ads, just submit the ad materials by the closing date specified to be sure that your ad is included in that issue.
Ad Closing Dates
The closing date for advertising materials and payment to arrive in the office is the 15th of each month. This applies even if the 15th of the month falls on a weekend. Because there is no mail delivery to the office on the weekend, you will need to be sure that your ad arrives on Friday. These dates are not negotiable.

Sending Your Ad or Photos to Us
If your file is less than 5 MB in size, you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If, however, you have a number of files, or your files are larger than 5MB, please use the free service WeTransfer to deliver your print-ready ad to us, or to send photos and graphics if we’re setting up the ad for you. On the WeTransfer website, specify email@example.com as the recipient for the file.
If you are a Dropbox user, you can send files to us with that service. Just share the files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After sending us your files, send an email to to email@example.com, making sure that you include all of the information listed under “Checklist: Information You Need to Include With Your Ad.”
- File size should not be a problem with WeTransfer; you can send files up to 2 GB in size. If you are using DropBox, the only limitation is the size allowed by your account. The free basic account allows 2 GB of storage.
- Preferably, multiple files should be compressed into a single file with Stuffit, PKZip, or WinZip.
