Political Advertising

As stipulated in our society’s Constitution and Bylaws, The Pender Post shall not be used to promote any political interests. However, during election campaigns we will accept one-line calendar listings to notify our readers of candidates’ visits or meetings ($5 charge paid in advance). Also, for the issue just before an election, The Pender Post Society invites each of the candidates to submit at no charge a 500-word statement and a candidate’s photograph.

Submission

Requirements

Now that we have colour pages, these ads will
need to follow our new submission requirements.

  • The ads will be full colour converted to CMYK colour

  • All graphics and the final product needs to be a minimum of 300 dots per inch

  • The size will be 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches high with a .25 inch bleed, which means the final product will have the colour go to the edge of the paper

  • All text to be converted to "outlines" or "curves"

  • If this is something you don't understand or can't do, you will have to find someone to professionally make your ad.  Ads created in Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher or any other word processor will most likely be rejected as it is hard to follow these requirements with these types of software.

  • All grayscale (inside pages) advertising requirements will remain the same.

  • If a non-profit is having difficulty creating their ad, there could be help available depending on the design that is desired.

  • We understand that meeting this criteria could present a financial challenge for some of our fellow non-profit groups.  Let us know if help is needed and we will do our best to assist you.
