Ad Design Services

Advertisers can submit ideas, logos, and company information to our 3-proof process. Tails Pet Media Group, Inc. designers will create most ads for $200. The ad will be archived if advertiser decides to run it in future issues at no charge. Repeat advertisers with ads requiring structural or creative updates will be charged a nominal fee – contact your representative for more details. Repeat advertisers may run ads already archived with Tails with no retrieval costs.

Color Ads on Newsprint

Although Tails makes every effort to guarantee a great reproduction, due to the nature of newsprint and the printing process, we cannot guarantee exact color reproduction or registration. TPMG will not make adjustments to the price of the ad unless the color clearly diminishes the clarity of the product or obscures advertiser’s contact information.
