  • Save 3.8% by purchasing advertising space in advance and locking in the old ad rates. 

  • Your payment for the advance ad space must be received by June 4th.

  • We will hold the space on account. You use it whenever you like.

  • If you find you purchased more space than you need, we will gladly issue a refund for unused space at the rate you paid.

OCN is mailed each month to every residence and every business in the Tri-Lakes area from County Line Road south to Northgate Road and from the mountains east to Highway 83. Our mailed circulation now stands at more than 16,400. We put another 700 copies in stacks in shops and offices through the Tri-Lakes area. Increased printing and mailing costs have necessitated an increase in our ad rates, which have been unchanged since June 2015. The new rates apply to ad space purchased after June 4th. As always, our volunteers are working hard to keep advertising rates to a minimum.

Display Ads

The following rates apply to local advertisers. To calculate the non-discounted rate that applies to out-of-area advertisers, divide the discounted rate by 0.75.

The new special rate for business card size (3.25 x 1.75) will be $36.97 (currently $34.55).

All other ads will cost $6.50 per square inch (currently $6.25), for example, 2 x 5 (10 sq. in.) will cost $65.00, 4 x 5 (20 sq. in.) will cost $130.00, quarter-page (5 x 8, 40 sq. in.) will cost $260.00, half-page (8 x 10, 80 sq. in.) will cost $520.00, full-page (10.25 x 15.75, 161.438 sq. in.) will cost $1,049.35.

There is an additional $0.25 per square inch (unchanged) charge for special placement (page or position).

Inserts

If instead of having your ad printed in the paper, you would like to have your advertising circular (up to and including 0.2 oz.) inserted in and distributed with OCN, the cost is $45 per 1,000 ($0.05 per item). You provide the items for insertion. Add $8 per 1,000 for each additional 0.2 oz. Note that a typical sheet of copy paper weighs 0.15 oz. These rates are unchanged; however, the OCN does not accept partial-run inserts.
