Last call for advertisements!  
The mag will be published on June 1st.... so I need the ads ASAP as it's a first come first included type deal and if I get too many then I'll have to leave some out for next issue...

They need to be an image (.jpg, .gif or .png - but not transparent) this exact size:

(just save that image to your harddrive, increase the colour depth and do your ad in that image)

So e-mail them to vermilion.magazine@gmail.com

Also - Still in need of a giveaway item if possible.... and there is still space if anyone wants to submit anything....

OK, so I have been working on an advert. I used word to create it but is it possible to now change it to an image? Sorry I'm not very good at this stuff! Or do I create it in some other programme?

umm... there might be a way to do it from within word (I'm not so familiar with how to use it for things other than the basics)...

But you could press the "print screen" button on your keyboard (if you have one), and then open a graphics program and paste the screen shot in, then crop it...and save it as an image

If you can't do that - you can send me the word file and I can do it for you...

but we've filled up the one page of ads, so if we don't get enough submitted to put a second page in, then I'll have to keep your ad for next issue...

How much are you selling advertisements for?
Obsidianpurple_obsidian on June 8th, 2010 03:58 am (UTC)
At the moment it's free...

I will eventually have to charge a small fee to cover costs (domain and name registration) - but when that comes in I'll let people know...

Also since ad space is limited, all advertisers will have to reapply (so to speak - e-mail me to let me know you want the ad run again) for ad space in the next issue - as it's done on a "first in" basis to keep it fair.... people who miss out get put at the top of the list for the next issue.

ooo that's exciting. How related to periods would it have to be? I was wondering if I could put one in for my teaching forum. Why? Because lots of women are teachers, and to be honest I'd LOVE to have a whole lot of members of the teaching forum who are the sorts of teachers who care about the environment, women's issues, gender issues, and are open minded about things.
Would that be okay? I can whip up an ad pretty quickly for your next issue! (My website's not even up yet, but it will be by July).

well I was anticipating the ads would be more for businesses who sell something that might be relevant to the readers.... not specifically related to menstruation - but things relevant to women (I do expect most ads will be for businesses selling reusable menstrual products and the like)

I'd think you're probably best off just having the URL to the forum in whatever articles/submissions you send in... but if we end up with spare space, I can run your ad.

That's fine. :) I just submitted something (that doesn't need to be linked to the teaching forum)
