Front Page Placement
To be fair to all of our advertisers, big and small, to reserve a front page position clients must run at least six display ads in a year and run no less than six ads between front pages. If a front page position is available for the current selling week, Penny Power will sell the space to the first advertiser who requests it. Front Page ads must run all zones and be at least 15 column inches.
Back Page Placement
Have a full page or horizontal half page ad to run? You can reserve the back page, special rates apply. When two half-page ads are on the back page each ad will be reduced to 98% to allow for space between the ads. Here’s something different…A full page ad will not bump a reserved half-page ad.
