Customized Placement Service

If you want to advertise in specific newspapers in specific markets, our customized customized placement service is the answer.

To request a no obligation quote, you’ll need to provide NPAS with quote criteria. You can request quotes by city, mile radius of a city, county, region, state, etc. Let us know the newspapers, ad sizes, run dates, etc., and we’ll send you a quote that matches your specifications.

Quotes give you all the information you need to make an informed purchase, such as:

  • Newspaper name
  • Circulation
  • Column inch rate
  • Cost of the ad size requested
  • Total cost of campaign
  • Mechanical specs

If you decide to place your ad, we:

  • Traffic ad materials
  • Send orders to the newspapers
  • Send proof publication in the form of a tear sheet or affidavit
  • Send you an itemized invoice

Regardless of the number of newspapers on the order, you’ll receive just one bill and you’ll cut just one check to NPAS.
