GENERAL PRODUCTION INFORMATION:
• Our half-tone production is excellent, but quality is in direct relation to the materials provided us. For best reproduction, we suggest black and white glossy pictures available from most suppliers. Cut-outs from suppliers’ catalogs most likely have already been half-toned or are in color. They do not reproduce well, and are submitted entirely at the risk of the advertiser.
• It is our policy not to alter camera-ready ads, except to add or replace borders to adjust to our column widths.
GENERAL RATE POLICIES AND INFORMATION:
• A special non-profit rate is available to churches, civic associations and other recognized non-profit organizations, with approval from the Publisher.
• Basic composition (copy, design and art) charges are included in the rates. However, ads requiring special attention or original artwork are available at modest costs. Ask for an estimate.
• Each color cost in addition to black is $75.00 per page or any part thereof, in addition to regular ad rates. Minimum size for color is 12 column inches. Position requests cannot be guaranteed, but we will try to accommodate.
• Advertising may be placed in either the Local or National Editions. The National Edition is inserted into all Local Edition papers. However to maximize your exposure you might consider running an ad in both editions.
