Details & The Fine Print

Pricing Policy

Prices for advertisements are reviewed monthly, based on Fountain Pen traffic levels.

For advertisers who have selected to auto-renew their ads will receive an invoice through either email or post of their renewal approximately 2-3 weeks prior to their due date.

Advertisers who are have not previously selected the auto-renew option will need to fill out another advertising contract to post a new ad.

Other combinations of display locations are available. For contracts involving multiple display ads a price discount may be available - ask us for more information.

Artwork

Prices as noted above are based on web-ready artwork, and do not include the creation of your ad. Our graphics department can make your ad - contact us for details.

You do not have to run the same ad for your entire contracted period. Our pricing includes one ad substitution per every three months. For additional artwork substitutions, a small processing fee will be assessed - ask for details.

Formats accepted: .jpg, .png or .gif (regular and animated)

Non-Profit Advertisers

Non-profit organizations wishing to advertise with the Fountain Pen can advertise their Public Service Announcements (PSA) for free.

The display ads will be inserted as part of our rotation for the banner and sidebar positions as they are available. As such, the number of impressions will not be guaranteed. For non-profits who would like to guarantee an ad impression count please call us for a price quote.

The PSD's will be a 'hot link' back to the website of the non-profit.

Proof may be required of non-profit status before the ad campaign is approved.

Suitability

The Fountain Pen is not responsible for content of advertisements, but we will uphold standards for decency. Please ensure that you are aware of the regulations that may affect your ads prior to publication. For more detailed information the The Canadian Code of Advertising Standards is available online.
