Costs and sizes
For advert sizes and prices please download the media pack in pdf format, so you can them save it locally for future reference.

Artwork specifications
If you are providing your own print-ready artwork, we ideally require high resolution PDF files with all fonts embedded. All images within the PDF should be CMYK and a minimum of 300 dpi. Full colour advertisements must be created using the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) colour mode. Please ensure any spot/Pantone colours used are converted to a process/CMYK value.

Artwork prepared by us
We can prepare your advert for you, at no extra cost. Images supplied must be large enough to print at 300 dpi. Jpeg compression, if used, must be kept at a high level to ensure colour is not lost. Low resolution images cannot be accepted.

File preparation
Create the dimensions of the document page the same as the actual size of the advert. Keep all text boxes and graphics completely within 10mm of the trim boundaries of the page. Please ensure all double page spreads and full page adverts contain 3mm bleed around each side of the advert.

Submission
Text and images should ideally be emailed.

Copy deadline
Copy deadline is generally arond 1 week before the magazine goes to press.


Online Advertising

Our website is often the first place people come to when they are searching for both current and past articles from the magazine. It is also often the first port of call for people seeking information about gardening events.

Effective and cost-efficient
We offer effective, low-cost advertising on our website that enables you to place display adverts on our pages, eg leaderboards, mpus, billboards etc. Potential customers can then easily find out more about your product or service by clicking on your advert to go straight to your own homepage. Advertising space on each page is limited though, so be quick to ensure your spot!

Inserts and Sponsorship Opportunities

We have several opportunities to help you to promote your business. All of our sponsorship packages can be tailored to fit your requirements and we welcome any ideas for new sponsorship opportunities.

Inserts
Loose leaflets can be inserted into Scottish Gardener. Inserts can be an engaging and versatile way to grab the attention of your target market. In turn, this can encourage interactivity, retention and response.

Prices vary according to size and volume. For more information, contact our advertising department today.

Sponsorship
From time to time within Scottish Gardener we run reader competitions. Sponsoring these competitions is a low cost way of getting your company's name, or brand, in front of our readership. The concept is simple - you donate a prize of your choice relating to your product offering and we will design a competition around it. The competition occupies a half page space in the magazine, with an image of the prize and approximately 300 words for you to promote your brand or product. It's a win-win situation for both you and our readers!
