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 contracted advertising.

The magazine provides several types of advertising, some of  which are chargeable others are free.

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. 

The advertiser may change or refresh their advert any number of times during the contract period. For those advertisers who provide their own artwork, there will not normally be a charge.

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

Annual Updates

All existing advertisers will be 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.  Applications should be received on the official form by the 14th November, 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.

Register Interest

If there are no free spaces, potential 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.

Artwork and Logos

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. We can accommodate up to three inserts per month. It is the responsibility of the advertiser to provide 3250 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 delivered 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.
