Deadline: 20th of month two months prior. For example, ads (or cancellations) for the August 1999 issue must reach the Geotimes office by June 20. (The issue will reach most readers by the first week of the month.) Geotimes is not responsible for any ads with deadlines that are earlier than the end of the month in which the ad appears.
To estimate cost of a classified ad: figure approximately 45 characters per line including spaces and punctuation marks. Multiply total number of lines times the appropriate ad rate to get the cost. (This is only an estimate cost please allow 10% to 20% above your estimate when submitting a purchase order.)
