What is the benefit of booking a package?

Our Packages make it easy for you to connect with our readers, giving you the best value and proven combinations of our most popular placements and products.

All our Packages include One Complimentary Artwork Design if you need, or you can simply provide your finished artwork to spec.

What’s more you can book and pay for your package online, right now! Plus upload your finished art or artwork brief – it could not be easier to tick “bring in new business” off your list!

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.

What is the difference between the Business Directory and the Online Business Directory?

We launched the Online Business Directory in response to readers giving feedback that they’d love to easily be able to look up local businesses on the-go. The Online Business Directory is a “self-serve” advertising product, where you can register, pay and upload your listing live – within 15 minutes!

Our Business Directory is a much loved feature of the District Gazette and we know its another reason why households hang on to their copy and refer back throughout the month! To give our most loyal advertisers more value, we’re offering a FREE Online Business Directory listing with every 12 Month Business Directory listing taken out. Giving you the best of both worlds!

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! That’s why we include artwork in all bookings.

All bookings receive one complimentary design and one set of changes. Additional changes will incur a fee of $10 per set of changes.

If you book a package online, you’ll have the opportunity to upload your artwork brief to us with your booking, or if you book over the phone or via our booking form, you’ll be asked to supply your brief on confirmation.

Keep an eye on our deadlines, to make sure you get your brief in, and sign your artwork off in time for publication.

I have a designer, where can I find the Art Specifications?

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

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. If we prepared your artwork, additional changes will be charged at $10 per set of changes.

Make sure you keep an eye on our deadlines to make sure your changes can be made in time for your next booking.

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!
