Home Statewide Display Ad Program

…that’s less than $6.50 per newspaper per week for a 2 x 2 ad reaching 400,000+ readers!

Your local participating newspaper can help you maximize the power of small space advertising, including designing and preparing your ad. Or, you can call the Montana Newspaper Association and our SDAP specialist will schedule your ad. You provide ad copy (pdf files) to MNA. Each ad copy must contain two widths, 3.2″ wide and 3.7″ wide to display correctly in the various newspapers. Email [email protected] for ad reservations and for sending accompanying ad copy.
