How to Advertise

NOTE: Deadline for ads: Monday 12:00 noon

The Citizen offers two kinds of advertisements:

  1. “Mini-ads,” or line ads. These low-cost ads are reserved for private citizens who are holding yard sales or selling items like cars, furniture or other one-time things. Most ads run $5 for one week. Runs in both the Brunswick and Valley Citizen papers.
  2. “Box ads,” or display ads. These start at the minimum size of 1-column wide by 1-inch high. Ads are priced according to the number of columns they are wide multiplied by the number of inches high they are. Any size is possible, up to 5 columns wide and 14 inches high.
    Ad prices begin with those for ads placed once: the “one time” rate. A discounted rate is available for “regular” advertisers: those who place ads with us four times or more a year.
  3. ‘Full color’ is available.
