New adverts can either:

  • be supplied in ‘print ready’ format i.e. a high resolution (300 dpi) jpeg or pdf file of the required size. When supplying a pdf file all fonts should be converted to outline. Please note that experience has shown that a scanned file/image is not of high enough quality to meet our print requirement, or

  • we can produce a basic two colour, text only, boxed advert up to ¼ page from text provided at no charge, or

  • advertisers can use the services of the magazine’s professional designer using text/ideas/images/logos provided for a one-off cost based on the work required.

The advertising copy deadlines for ‘print ready’ files are as below:

  • 1 May for June/July issue

  • 27 June for August/September issue (an earlier deadline due to holiday commitments)

  • 29 August for October/November issue (an earlier deadline due to holiday commitments)

  • 1 November for December/January issue

  • 2 January for February/March issue

  • 2 March for April/May Issue

However, earlier notification to reserve the appropriate advertising space is recommended in case the advertising page quota for any issue is exceeded.
