Newspaper Display Advertising
Display advertising is located throughout the publication and utilises size, colour, illustration and typography to attract the reader's attention. Display advertising is primarily found in the editorial sections but can also be placed within classified sections if deemed appropriate and relevant.

You can request a preferred position within the newspaper for a fee or choose "run of paper" whereby the advertisement is placed in any position in the paper at our discretion. Opting for run of paper generally results in a reduced charge to an advertiser.

Classified Advertising
Classifieds are advertising only pages across a number of different categories e.g for sale, trade services or situations vacant.

Premium Positions
Advertisers are able to purchase, subject to availability, front page solus, premium and unique positions.  Size, availability and price are subject to request and availability.

Standard Sizes
Run of Paper (ROP) from 4cm deep to 7cols (26.20) wide, up to 27cmx7cols and then to 37x7cols.
