Lampeter Grapevine

Advertising – Guidance Notes

If you wish to advertise in the Lampeter Grapevine we will need to have received payment in our account prior to the copy deadline.

All advertisers will be issued with a unique Payment Reference Code upon request. We ask that you use this in all transactions and correspondence, and in particular when using online (banking) systems.

Contact us now for your Payment Reference Code (

Once you have your Payment Reference Code this is how it works ……

To request an advert – please send us (

•  Details of the size of advert (see below for sizes)

• Your advertising text in MS Word (or similar), pictures and/or graphic images in JPG (MS Publisher format is also ok if you prefer)

•  Instructions or a PDF of how you would like the advert laid out, please be as specific as possible as we do not offer a design service

•  Just a PDF is not good, the image does not reproduce well when printed

• Lampeter Grapevine does not issue Invoices or Receipts

• We will check our bank account, presumably find a payment from you accompanied by your Payment Reference Code, hey presto – your ad will be published

Copy deadline is always 18:00 on the Friday before the 2nd Saturday of the month – we endeavour to send a ‘week-in-advance’ reminder to all advertisers and contributors.

Guidelines for sending us images or artwork

Resolution – Minimum DPI (dots/pixels per inch) for images is 300 dpi. You need to send us images at the size they are to be in the layout – bigger if possible. Loss of quality can occur if much resizing is needed.

The newsletter is printed in “greyscale” (black, grey & white). If you send us colour images, think about whether they’ll look OK in greyscale.

We prefer the jpg file format but can also accept tif, gif, bmp or png

We cannot accept PDF’s other than as a representation of the layout

Please do not send images embedded within a Word document – send the image separately as a jpg

Please do contact us (well before the copy deadline if possible) if you are unsure about, or need help with formatting your image.
