Booking an Advertisement
Booking is simple and I can promise there is never any hard sell. I am very happy to be contacted just with an enquiry. We offer a wide range of display adverts starting from just £30 for a 3cm x 4.5cm text only mini box (for full details on prices and sizes contact Niki). If you think you may like to advertise – DON’T WAIT – contact me immediately – the earlier the better. On publication, a complimentary copy of The Family Grapevine will be posted to you.
Ready made adverts should be of 300 dpi or above preferably in jpeg, tiff or pdf format (although other formats accepted). We also offer a free design service, so if you don’t already have a ready made advert, just supply the text and any images/logos you would like to be included and a proof will be sent to you for your approval. Please send any images/logos at 300 dpi in the actual size if possible, together with your advert wording to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having booked an advertisement, an invoice will be sent to you with a payment due date. If you have booked a series of 3 advertisements, an invoice will be sent to you prior to each issue.
