Advertising Submissions

Advertising can be contacted by email here ([email protected])

Please phone the Advertising Manager at 858-271-8523 only between 9 am and 5 pm. Advertising MUST be submitted in digital format (PDF), by the 10th of the month to the Advertising Manager and may be paid by check or credit card. PDF format is preferred for classifieds, but not necessary.

All advertising is accepted on a space-available, first-come-first-served basis.

As a community Newsletter, we reserve the right to refuse any ad.

Advertising space is limited in each issue. In particular, the number of double, full-page, and half page ads is limited, and the total number of ad pages is limited. A backup list for ads will be maintained. Reservations for space in the next issue of the Newsletter will be accepted, on a space-available basis, beginning on the 1st day of the preceding month. Advertising copy with payment is due on or before the 10th of the month. For example, reservations for an ad in the July issue will be accepted beginning June 1; payment and copy will be due by June 10.

Advertising space for the inside full cover and full back cover pages can be reserved in advance for one issue per quarter. A calendar quarter is defined as January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December. Payment is due at the time of reservation and not subject to any subsequent advertising rate increases.
