Advertise in the 2014 Program Book

February 4, 2014 by Tim

We are hard at work getting the 2014 Program Book ready. We try to reach local businesses to advertise in our program book every year to help sponsor its publication and our general fund which supports local area community needs.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out our Program books, then head over to our Downloads and look at some of books from previous years.

If you would like to advertise in the 2014 Program Book, then download the 2014 Advertisement Form.

The deadline for advertisement forms and copy is March 1, 2014.

Some helpful tips for ad copy:

  • Images should be a 300 dpi (ppi), but can be higher but doesn’t offer any major benefit. If it is over 800 dpi, the image will be converted down to 300 dpi.
  • Ad images can be sent via email, DVD or CD, Flash disk (non-returnable), trusted online cloud storage (such as Dropbox or Skydrive).
  • When emailing images, please do not paste the image into the email content. Instead please attach the image, this ensures that we will receive the image in its proper format.
