Information about our advertisement sizes
Please refer to the advertisement sizes stated in your contract.
If you are not sure of what to put in your advertisement
Start with basic details like your business name, address, phone number, opening hours and so on. Don't forget to send us a copy of your logo if you have one, and any images you wish to include (see guidelines below). Remember: we cannot design an ad for your business if we don't know anything about you!
All images should be hi-resolution (300dpi). All artwork supplied should be at the actual image size or larger, ie 300dpi at 100 percent scaling.
Remember: Taking logos or images from websites is not accepted as they are not at hi-res and cannot be reproduced in print.
