When is the deadline?

Deadline falls on/around the 15th of the month, you'll find the exact dates on our DEADLINES page. if you think you're cutting it fine, DON'T PANIC, give us a call........where there's a will there's a way! We'd love to help get your message out in our next publication; we'll be sure to do all we can (and more) to squeeze you in!

Can I request a certain page or position in the Business Directory?

Absolutely! Unless requested, your advertisement will appear in our 'Standard Placement' format, at the liberty of our Designers when compiling the publication. In the Business Directory, 'Standard Placement' will see your ad appear in alphabetical order within your chosen category.

If you request a specific page; or a specific position (1st, 2nd or 3rd) within a Business Directory category - our Designers will allocate your ad inline with your request (guaranteed!).

We call this, 'Premium Placement'. Loading fees do apply and as they're popular, they are subject to availability. You'll find all the details in our MEDIA KIT.


When will it be delivered?

The District Gazette Publications are delivered MONTHLY from the 1st of the month, excluding January of every year. The entire distribution is expected to be completed within the first 7 days of the month.

I can't design my own ad, can you help?

We get it! You're an expert in your field; as are we in ours! Of course, we can definitely design your ad. All of our packages include artwork, so it's as hassle free as can be! And......... if you don't go with a package, we can still look after your artwork for a small fee, as outlined in our MEDIA KIT.

From here, all we need is a bit of an outline of what you would like to include (we call this your 'art brief'); along with any photos or logos you would like to include. You can leave the rest to us!  We know it's hard to picture how it will all come together, so, our design allows you to have ONE SET OF CHANGES if you need a few minor tweaks! Too easy.

Can I change my artwork?

Absolutely, YES! We know that things happen, offers change, the focus shifts and from time to time you need to alter your message. We're in business too, we get it!

We make it SUPER easy for advertisers to SUBMIT their own replacement artwork (to correct specifications) at no extra charge, as often as they like throughout their booked period. Or if it's easier, we can look after your artwork changes for a small fee, as outlined in our MEDIA KIT.

Deadline falls on/around the 15th of the month, but...... DON'T PANIC, give us a call if you think you're cutting it fine; we'll do our best to accommodate where we can.
I have a designer, where can I find the Art Specifications?

Fantastic, too easy! Our Art Specifications can be found in our MEDIA KIT; and material submission dates can be located on our DEADLINES page. 

How do I book?

Simply complete and return the BOOKING FORM via email (or call us); our Design team will be in touch shortly after and we will take care of the rest. It’s that EASY!
