Full Page / Half Page / Quarter Page / Sixth Page / Eighth Page …. Or can be custom made by the column inch.

The most effective and least expensive way to advertise in the Sun is with a D RATE Advertising Contract:

You are paying for insertion space - Commit to a smaller ad all year - in 26 issues - and when you need to advertise BIG, you automatically get the lowest rates! That makes a Full Page ad go from $616 per insertion, down to $326.75 instead, because you've advertised all year.

We offer three contracts for frequent insertion:

D RATE is for 26 insertions, all year.

C RATE is for 13 insertions, in six months or in every other issue of the year.

B RATE is for 6 insertions in six months' time.

SPOT COLOR is an additional $70 per insertion, and allows you one color plus black and white.

FULL COLOR is an additional $260 per insertion, no matter what size the ad is - four printing plates must be made.

CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING is $9.99 for four text lines or less, and $2.50 for each additional line, per insertion.

CLASSIFIED DISPLAY ADS are based on the column inch rates shown on our RATE SHEET.
