Advertising Rates and Sizes
Note: we have recently upgraded to color covers. Advertising rates have been adjusted accordingly. Please contact the Advertising Director for special instructions regarding cover ads and to determine availability before paying. Priority will be given to color advertisements.
Our general advertising rates and ad sizes are the following:
|For Non Grove-Sponsored Ads||For Grove-Sponsored Ads|
|Color Full Page back outside cover||(contact Advertising Director for instructions)||$75.00||$67.50|
|Full Page front inside cover||(contact Advertising Director for instructions)||Color: $65 B/W: $60||Color: $58.50 B/W: $54|
|Full Page back inside cover||(contact Advertising Director for instructions)||Color: $65 B/W: $60||Color: $58.50 B/W: $54|
|Full Page (not on a cover)||7" wide x 9.7" high||$55.00||$50.00|
|Half Page||7" wide x 4.75" high||$45.00||$40.00|
|Quarter Page||3.5" wide x 4.75" high||$37.50||$35.00|
|Card Size||3.5" wide x 2.25" high||$27.50||$25.00|
There is limited spacing for some of the sizes. Full pages and half pages only have four spaces each available and Card Sizes only have eight spaces available.
We can also put two half size ads on the inside back cover, but only if there is no full ad.
We reserve the right to refuse any advertisement that we deem not appropriate for our publication. Ads will be scaled to fit the page.
All ads must be paid in full when submitted. Please email our Advertising Director before paying to make sure we are not full on that size. Ads sell quickly and we'd hate to turn you away for an issue after you've already paid.
You may pay with Paypal below (you don't have to be registered with Paypal to make a payment through it).
Again, if you are specifying placement on the inside front, inside back or outside back covers, please check with the Advertising Director to make sure it hasn't already been reserved.
You can also pay by snail mail; in that case make your check payable to A.D.F., write Oak Leaves Ad in the memo section, and mail it to:
ADF PO BOX 669 Amelia, OH 45102-0669
Images should be sent to the Advertising Director at adf-ol-adsadf.org and images should be able to be opened in Paint Shop Pro or Adobe Photoshop. Also, send separate files of images in case scaling down doesn't work.
Alternately, text and associated graphics may be submitted, but in this case, layout of the ad will be up to the Advertising Coordinator and Editor. All ads should be in .JPG, .PSD, or .DOC format.
All decisions will be up to the Oak Leaves Staff. If you have questions, please contact our Advertising Director.
