Ad fees (advance payment required) are calculated by the number of “shares” you order for an ad space. If you order one share, your minimum cost is the cost for a single share. For example, if you order a single SIDEBAR BOX share, you pay $30 per month (no minimum monthly requirement, but minimum is one month). If you want more exposure, you simply order more shares (if and when they are available). For example if you want maximum exposure, you would reserve an order for all shares (50 x $30 per share = $1500). If another advertiser or advertisers already occupies or occupy share(s), then you can request the maximum amount available (For example, if 35 shares are available, you can order 35 shares at $30 per share, which equals $1050 for the month).

The minimum order is one month. If you are ordering for a short-day month with 28, 29, or 30 days, The Cardinal will allow 31 days, if space is available.

If you have an upcoming event that is less than one month away, call 847-398-0123 for a special quote. You will still be required to pay the monthly minimum, but if there is space available and depending on conditions, you might be able to acquire more shares for your shortened period, For example, two shares for the price of one.

Deals stickers are 186×68 pixel ads that all show on the same page — Arlingtoncardinal.com/deals. The deals page is promoted on Facebook and on ads on Arlingtoncardinal.com, StreetsofArlingtonHeights.com, and Taste-of-Arlington. Stickers are only $10 per month. You can use a sticker to publish a coupon or simply show an ad for your business — or announce an upcoming event, or promote your Facebook page or Twitter account. [AD ORDER FORM]

You can also send a personal message, such as Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary or Congratulations.

The sticker grid is five columns across and up to 30 rows. Yes, you can have more than one coupon on the deals page. Group them together horizontally or vertically (if space is available) or scatter them about the page.

You can order a sticker for each month, and you can reserve a sticker position for the whole year or more. The minimum pricing is the monthly fee (no pro-rating). For example, if you only want a sticker to display for two days, the fee is still $10. Or if you decide you want to order a sticker on the 15th and start displaying on the 15th, your ad will display until the end of the month — not for 30 days.

Each sticker has a grid position and an expiration date. You can order any sticker grid position after its expiration date. The expiration date can be discovered by hovering your cursor from your desktop computer or laptop computer over the sticker. A pop-up displays the sticker grid position and the expiration date.

For example, if you want the second sticker in the first row, the grid address is “1, 2” and if the current sticker shows an upcoming expiration date, you can order that position. Keep in mind that the expiration dates are not updated in real time, so it is possible that another advertiser could order ahead of your request.

Orders can be taken by form [AD ORDER FORM].

The Arlingtoncardinal.com/deals page with “stickers” will be available in October 2014.
