This depends on the size of advert you would like. Click here to see our Media Pack.
No, everyone pays the same low advertising rate, which gives even the smallest of budgets the opportunity to advertise.
We can produce advertisement artwork for you using any logos, images and copy that you supply, at no extra cost. If you are unsure about what size or what to put into your advertisement, we would be more than happy to create something for you.
Of course. Please check the dimensions of the advertisement with us, but otherwise we accept artwork as a jpg, tif, pdf or eps. Don’t forget advertising will be in mono.
We do our best to accommodate advertiser’s requirements, but cannot always guarantee specific pages. Regular features run in every issue and may offer advertisers with specific businesses a more appropriate location within the magazine.
We do offer new advertisers and businesses some free editorial to support their first advertisement and to provide readers with more information that would appear in an advertisement. Around 200-250 words is acceptable. As The Herald relies on paid advertising, we cannot guarantee editorial space for all advertisers but we do try our best to accommodate all requests.
