2016 Advertising Deadlines, Rates and Policy for Columbus Outdoors

The monthly publication of Columbus Outdoor Pursuits

·   Advertising is accepted upon prior arrangement with the Editor.  Email or call before sending so we know to expect it.

·   Ads in PDF (embed all fonts, send in actual size,-see sizes below) TIFF, PNG or JPEG format (minimum 300dpi, actual size) can
    be emailed to the EditorPaper ads must be camera-(scanner) ready and sent to the COP Office (address is above). 

·   All ads must be received by the Editor, or the COP office, by 11:59pm on the posted deadline.   If the editor must add design
    work to your submission, you will be billed at $35.00 per hour for the time.

·   Because we no longer mail Columbus Outdoors under a non-profit postal permit, we no longer need to avoid ads banned by the
    United States Postal Service. We can now run advertisements for most anything we choose.  However, we reserve the right to refuse
    ads based on content.  
           - Charity events, where the event is being run by the Charity are allowed.
             - Charity events, where the event is being run for profit and only part of the profit is going to the
                  charity
are not allowed.

The admission of an advertisement and/or content in violation of COP guidelines does not obligate Columbus Outdoor
       Pursuits to continue to run advertisements /content in violation of those guidelines.   
In other words, sometimes we
        make mistakes in spite of our good intentions. We try not to repeat these mistakes; after all, there are so many new ones to be
        made.

* When space is limited, priority goes to COP content first, followed by our regular advertisers.  For remaining space,
    preference is given to Ads for goods 
or services that are “substantially related” to our mission - “We Provide Outdoor
    Adventure Through a Social Learn+Do Approach
."
