the business rate for advertisements in Mothers News is just $15 a vertical inch. Our ad columns are 2.5" wide, so a 2x2.5" ad is $30, a 3x2.5" ad is $45, and so on. If you prebuy 3 months of ads, you get the 4th month free!
this rate applies to businesses that advertise in other locations, businesses that are "above ground", and projects that are successful enough to be like "here's to added support for this totally crazy thing that I love (Mothers News)".
we will happily design the ad for you, with whatever information you provide (more info).
the non-business rate for advertisements in Mothers News is $10 a vertical inch. Our ad columns are 2.5" wide, so a 1x2.5" ad is $10, a 4x2.5" ad is $40, and so on. If you prebuy 3 months of ads, you get the 4th month free!
this rate is for people whose schemes are crazy or very close to the wire, to the point where $5 is make or break. no one will be told which rate they should use, nor judged on it later- it's totally your call! if you wouldn't balk at $15 an inch, though, please use the business rate.
as with the business rate, we will happily design the ad for you, with whatever information you provide (more info).
• You Design It
For those of you designing your own email a gif tiff or jpg to MN@mothersnews.net. we'll need it in greyscale, at 300dpi, to size. our ad columns are 2.5" wide.
• We Design It
the Mothers News advertising team will gladly design your ad at no additional charge, given some text to work from. Due to time constraints, if we design your ad you will NOT be able to OK it or even see it until it is already printed in the paper. we are aware this is not how things usually work, but we have had no complaints thus far from any of our advertisers. a selection of previous ads can be seen on our tumblr
Please Note: advertising space in Mothers News is limited, so please get your order for an ad in as early as possible. You needn't have all the information together- once we get the order in we will contact you about your design needs and time frame. if you would like to take out an ad a few months in the future we can certainly accommodate!
