Classified ad guidelines and pricing
- Classified ads are sold by the line. The cost is $4.50 per line per insertion. One line of copy is equal to 25 letters, characters and spaces long. There is a minimum of 3 lines per ad.
- Service directory ads are sold by the column inch. One column inch is 1.5 inches wide by 1 inch tall and costs $30 per insertion.
- Additional space above 1 col. inch can be purchased in increments of 1/4th column inch. Each additional 1/4th column inch costs $5. Adding artwork, logos or images or use of special fonts are no additional charge.
- Legal notice advertising rates are charged based on the actual size of the ad. The cost is based on the same rates as Service Directory advertising. “Doing Business As [DBA]” and “Assumed Name” legal ads are based on a flat rate of $43 per week. By law they are required to run for three weeks for a total cost of $130.
Frequency discounts are available and can be applied fully at the time of purchase with full payment for the run or applied retroactively upon payment of invoices. They are:
4-6 insertions: 10% off
7-12 insertions 15% off
13-25 insertions 20% off
26 or more insertions 30% off.
