How to Advertise

The Citizen offers two kinds of advertisements:
- “Mini-ads,” or line ads. These low-cost
ads are reserved for private citizens who are holding yard sales or
selling items like cars, furniture or other one-time things. Most ads
run $5 for one week. Runs in both the Brunswick and Valley Citizen papers.
- “Box ads,” or display ads. These start
at the minimum size of 1-column wide by 1-inch high. Ads are priced according to the number of columns
they are wide multiplied by the number of inches high they are. Any
size is possible, up to 5 columns wide and 14 inches high.
Ad prices begin with those for ads placed once: the “one time”
rate. A discounted rate is available for “regular” advertisers:
those who place ads with us four times or more a year.
- ‘Full color’ is available.
