An email will be sent about two weeks before the start date of the billing period requesting a digital copy of the advertisement in the appropriate size. If you need our staff to design your advertisement, please contact us specifying the content of the advertisement, and we will email a digital copy for you to approve prior to publishing. Please note that designing advertisements takes more time, so an immediate response would be greatly appreciated. Artwork, typesetting and design are all included in the price of the advertisement. Advertisers may opt to provide an online-ready copy.

Account holders will be sent an invoice after the billing period ends, and account may be payable upon reception of this invoice. Payments should reach our office no later than two weeks after the end of the billing period. After this date, a late fee of $1 per day will be instituted. There is no deadline for placing advertisements; however, the invoice will reflect the entire billing period regardless of whether the advertisement was online for the entirety of the billing period. Cancellations will not be accepted after the start of the billing period.
