Nope! You can change your ad content, size, and color or black and white at any time during your contracted run. For example, if you sign a 12x contract for a full page color ad at $360 per month, but in the month of December want to drop to a 1/4 page black and white, you will be able to drop that ad size AND rate to $85 for that issue/ad size.

Yes, but special placements such as the cover, inside front cover, pages 3 and 5, the inside back cover, and the back cover, cost extra, and all special placements require a signed contract.

We most certainly do! Please call our office for more information about discounted ad rates.
