We are happy to announce revisions to the advertising information for the insertion of display ads in Communiqué, the official publication of the Clark County Bar Association. We have simplified the pricing structure and added more size options. The changes to the dimensions of the ads will comport with the planned revision to the page layout effective with the January 2016 issue. Full page ads will be allowed a full page bleed and other sizes may be placed closer to the edge of the page as the margins for the page narrow (and content widens). To prepare for the new layout, the revisions are effective October 1, 2015.
Please review the new advertising insertion information on our “Communiqué Advertising Rates & Specs” page at https://www.clarkcountybar.org/marketplace/communique-advertising-rates-specs/#COMMUNIQUE-RateSheetSpecs.
For an advertiser who has insertion order currently running in the Communiqué, your most current ad file will be published through the end of the current agreement. However, please note that you will need to submit a new ad file to meet the publication’s new specifications as well as a new ad order form to renew your order.
Whether you are a current advertiser or a new advertiser to our printed professional journal, now would be a great time to place a new ad to promote your business services, including:
- Legal products
- Professional services
- Awards & Achievements
- Law Firm Announcements
- Office & Retail Space
If you would like assistance with the advertising insertion form or would like to confirm a discount or preferred placement, please send a request with the desired size, format (4-color or grayscale), number of placements, and desired placement to Steph at the Clark County Bar Association via e-mail email@example.com or call her at (702) 387-6011 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We truly appreciate your business and continued support of our non-profit member organization.| Tags: Communique
