These ad sizes are for our community newspapers only. Ad sizes for our other publications are listed on the respective rate cards.

How to Use This Rate Card All newspaper rates in this media kit are per column inch. In order to determine the cost of an ad, it is first necessary to decide on the size of the ad. For purposes of rates, the width of an ad is measured in columns and the depth is measured in inches. An ad referred to as a 2x5 is actually 2 columns by 5 inches. The width (e.g., 2 columns) is then multiplied by the depth (e.g., 5 inches) to determine the total column inches the ad will cover (e.g., 2x5 = 10 column inches). For the price of the ad, multiply the total column inches by the appropriate rate on the grid for the newspaper in which the ad is to run. For example, a 2x5 ad (10 column inches) at the open rate of $11.50 would cost $115, plus any color charge. The "open rate" is the rate for all advertising unless otherwise specified. 4

Frequency discounts are available to ALL insertions at the time an insertion order is placed. For example, an advertiser who commits to running a 1/4-page ad 5x-8x will receive the discounted $231 rate for each ad. If an advertiser agrees to purchase a specific number of print ad placements in GeaugaNOW but later cancels or reduces the number of ads, Karlovec Media Group may charge a short-rate penalty to compensate the company for the lost revenue and help offset the costs associated with the unfilled commitment. The short-rate to be charged will be the difference between the discounted rate and the non-discounted rate. For example, if an advertiser commits to running a 1/4-page ad 5x and receives the discounted $231 rate, but cancels the fifth ad, a short-rate charge of $41 ($272 - $231) for each of the four ads run may be charged.
