Special Placement Policy:

Due to high demand for placement of ads in specific pages of the Star of Zion, we have created a new policy to allow equality of publishing information.

1. Any individual (candidate or non-candidate), leadership entity of a church or organization can only request the back page 4 times in a year (issues of your choosing). Those requests will be on a first come, first served basis. Payment for special placement must be in the Star of Zion office when request is made to guarantee placement.

2. There will be a 15% upcharge for any special placement request in the paper, (campaign or non-campaign ads). The increase is 15% of the regular cost of any size ad. For example, a regular full page, non-campaign ad cost $375.00, so specific placement of any full page ad would be an additional 15% ($56.25). This applies to all ad sizes accordingly.

3. If you have purchased a campaign packet, and would like to request specific placement, the same cost would apply 15% of the cost of the regular size ad space you are requesting.

 

Advertising Rates For Multiple/Repeat Placement:

Depending on the size and frequency of running an ad or series of ads, a discounted rate may be negotiated with the Editor. This does not apply to Campaign Ad Packages. Please feel free to contact the editor directly if you need any further explanation on the information provided below. Once you select the package you would like to reserve we will send you a PayPal invoice for you to remit payment. Email the Star of Zion editor @ editor@starofzion.org to discuss terms.

Publishing Guidelines: (Please note there is no longer any cost for article and obituary publishing for approved content)

2. Articles must be sent in Microsoft Word Format, 12pt, Times New Roman font.
