Display Advertising
Ads are not crowded on the pages. There is a 3/16" space minimum on all sides. A minimum of 50% editorial is used in each issue allowing for a nice display area for advertisers. All care is taken to place advertisers on or near pages with editorial relating to their business or animal species. Logos and line-art sent in for use would be preferable on white stock (we will do our very best with what you send). Photos: color or B/W accepted. Camera-ready copy, PDF, jpg, tiff or bmp files also accepted. If they are not to size, or of poor quality they will be resized and/or redone if possible. There are never any extra charges for ad design. Photos, Artwork and Design are all included in the price of the ad. If you sign into a long-term contract you are allowed to change your ad, whenever you wish at no extra charge.
