Advertising with us

ADVERTISING IN THE BASINGA MAGAZINE

The Basinga magazine is published monthly and delivered free to 3200 households in the parish of Old Basing and Lychpit.  There is a mixture of colour and black and white pages.  Of the 44 pages that comprise the magazine, 22 of them are dedicated to displaying contracted adverts.

There are several types of advertising that the Magazine can provide, some of  which are chargeable and some of which are free, as listed below:

All chargeable advertising must be paid for before the adverts will appear in the magazine.

CONTRACT ADVERTISING

Contracted adverts run for 12 issues from January to December and are available in 5 different sizes, ranging from 1/8 to a full page.  We can support either Black and White or Full Colour advertisements. 

During the contract period it is permissible for the advertiser to change or refresh their advert any number of times, and for advertisers that provide their own artwork, this will not normally incur a charge.

An additional benefit of being a Contract Advertiser is that your advert will appear here on Basinga Extra at no extra charge.

All existing advertisers are contacted by the Advertising Manager in October to arrange their advertising requirements for the following year.  Advertising space is allocated on a first come first served basis from applications received on the official form by the 14th November, where applications from our current advertisers are given priority.  Some advertisers choose not to renew for the next year, and in this case the Advertising Manager will contact the first person on the waiting list to offer them the space that has become available.  Potential advertisers are encouraged to request to be placed on this waiting list well in advance of the 14th of November.

There are currently no free spaces, but new advertisers can register their interest for a space by completing the Request Form here, or simply by emailing advertising@basinga.org.uk for availability and cost.

Advertisers submitting their own artwork should read the File Specification for the formats that we can accept.  For advertisers who are unable to supply finished artwork to the appropriate size and quality, the Basinga offers a design service.  See File Specification for more details about what we can do and the charges that may apply.

For Logos not in the public domain, the advertiser must own the copyright or be authorised to use any or all elements of the source material. The Basinga Management Committee or its representatives cannot be held responsible for any dispute that may arise over copyright.

Inserts and Flyers

The Basinga often deliver Flyers or Inserts with the magazine and we can accommodate up to three inserts per month.  It is the responsibility of the advertiser to provide 3200 copies of the flyer to the Advertising Manager by the 10th of the month, so that it can be included with the magazine that will be delievered by the first of the next month.  The maximum size of an insert is A5, but it could be A4 folded to A5.

We often find that people on the waiting list use this form of advertising until a space becomes available in the magazine.
