HOW TO PLACE A CLASS AD It’s easy. Just type or print the text of your ad, multiply the number of words by 40¢ per word, and send us a check or money order for the total. (Note that a phone number, including area code, counts as one word.) Then mail your ad text and payment, made out to the Noe Valley Voice, so that we receive it by the 15th of the month before the month in which you’d like to advertise. The address is Noe Valley Voice Class Ads, P.O. Box 460249, San Francisco, CA 94146. (Sorry, the Voice is unable to accept Class Ads by phone or email.) 10 for 10 discount: The Noe Valley Voice publishes 10 months a year. (We’re on vacation in January and August.) If you place the same class ad in 10 issues, you are entitled to a 10 percent discount. To figure your cost, deduct 10 percent from the total amount due for 10 issues. The next Voice will be the March 2015 issue, distributed in Noe Valley the first week of December. The deadline for Class Ads is February 15. The Class Ads also will be displayed at www.noevalleyvoice.com. Advertisers should keep in mind that only the first few words of the ad (not to exceed one line) will be set in bold. Also, receipts and tear sheets will be provided only if your order is accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Refunds are not granted unless we have made an error. We appreciate your support.
