We have a few standard ad sizes, although we can work with anything that fits.
You can have a login if you want to change these ads yourself, and some of them are super easy to modify – see below.
We also have several enhancements which make your ad stand out. Scroll down to find out more – it’s worth your time, we promise.
Standard Ad Sizes
Sidebar (recommended for most) ads are limited to 300 pixels in width. These are standard sizes, but we’re flexible regarding height. (Larger than 300 pixels tall might cost extra.)
And for our ads that fit between the headlines on the front page, or inside stories, they can be wider than 300 pixels, like this one:
This used to be an industry-standard ad size, but many of our ads are slightly taller, with about a 6:1 height-to-width ratio.
Ads between the headlines and inside stories can be up to 575 pixels wide
If your ad is featured in the header, next to our logo, the size definitely needs to fit the 6:1 ratio and be no more than 475 pixels wide.
Summary: We’ll help make your ad fit and look good.
A much simpler topic:
Sidebar and in-story/between headlines: $350/mo
The Listing / Table
Easily list movie showtimes, restaurant menus, sports schedules, event schedules, etc. Get the viewer’s attention with a partial list which expands to show everything. Very flexible and available for many uses.
The Slide Show
Up to five slides, with long or short delays. Great for when a standard ad doesn’t make the point. Works great with ads of any shape.
As mentioned above, if you simply need more space to present your ad, this is your solution. Include a teaser in the primary ad, and when viewers mouse-over this ad, or touch it on a tablet or smartphone, the larger ad flies out:
Create a cutout-style coupon with an optional image to promote a sale or event. When viewers click on it, they will be taken to a mobile-friendly page where they can print the page or keep it handy on their mobile device. Very easy to modify from your login.
Just like the standard coupon, but with an optional image to promote a sale or event. When viewers click on it, they will be taken to a mobile-friendly page where they can print the page or keep it handy on their mobile device. Very easy to modify from your login.
Viewers are invited to scratch off the top to see the ad beneath. Works with a mouse, or your finger on a tablet or smartphone. Underneath can be a picture, or just simple text, as shown. Very easy to modify from your login.
Click to Enlarge
A very simple format which displays an image and a “Click to Enlarge” call to action which will open the image in a new window. Useful for store flyers and circulars. Very easy to modify from your login.
Super-Simple Photo Ad
If you’re in a pinch and need a quick ad made, just upload a photo, enter some business details, and voilà, an ad. No graphic artist required. :-)
Super-Simple Featured Box Ribbon
Just supply a photo. Put a fancy ribbon on a standard ad and add text. It’s best to use this with a box ad greater than or equal to 300 pixels wide. Great for real estate, consignment shops…
Before and After
Here’s another one that’s pretty easy to manage yourself. All you need is two pictures. We can make it stacked like this, or side-by-side.
The Amazing Cube
Supply six photos, and you’re ready to go. You can add a logo above and/or captions below, and change out the photos anytime you want. Use good photos. This requires a square ad, which runs at least $400/month (depending on size – see above), and there is a $75 a month additional charge.
