The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read

Why Do People Read


• They’re intrigued by the interesting Trivia, that keeps them coming back. • They smile at the humor; it brightens their day. • They work the word games and puzzles; it gives them something relaxing to do during their coffee time, lunch break, bus or gondola ride, or while waiting at local businesses. • They enjoy the interesting and informative columns that inspire them. • They love the fun-to-read advertisements that tell them about the wonderful businesses seeking to meet their everyday needs and desires with exciting products and services. • They love Tidbits® because it IS NOT filled with the 3D’s: death, disaster and dysfunction. This unique blend is what hooks our readers and keeps them coming back for more week after week. Our readers love Tidbits® so much they take them home or back to the office and share them with others.

Imagine Your Ad Being Seen by People Who Enjoy Reading Tidbits® Every Week. Julie Melville - Owner/Publisher 970-319-1222

Advertising in


• The best time to reach a prospective customer with your ad is while they are relaxed and having a good time. • Newspapers “inform” while Tidbits® “entertains.” • Tidbits® reaches people who are out in the marketplace with time on their hands and money in their pockets. • People read Tidbits® because they choose to, not because someone mailed it to them or threw it on their porch. • Your advertising and your business are associated with information that makes your customers feel good. • Tidbits® brings a new color to the valley news spectrum. • Tidbits® advertising is cost-effective print medium. Advertising in Tidbits® of the Roaring Fork Valley or Tidbits® of Glenwood Springs is very effective, affordable and easy. Tidbits® is distributed in locations throughout the valley and the Springs.
