Our Community News ad rate increase notice


Due to growth the area, especially in recent years, OCN's mailed circulation has significantly increased resulting in substantial increases in our printing and mailing costs.


Our all-volunteer staff donates their time so we can keep our ad rates as low as possible; however, the production cost increases are such that effective June 1st, the surcharge for color ads will increase from $1.25 per sq. in. to $1.50 per sq. in. resulting in an increase in the cost of color ads of about 3.2%.


Please note that the rate for B&W ads will remain unchanged and has not increased since July 2016!


Despite the color ad surcharge increase, our ad rates remain surprisingly low! Many advertisers have told us that OCN offers the best advertising bargain in the Tri-Lakes area and is an extremely cost-effective way to deliver your marketing message to everyone in the area.


An opportunity to save


Prior to June 1st, you can buy all the ad space in advance you want at the current rate. To do that, just send a check for the amount of space you want to purchase to Our Community News, P.O. Box 1742, Monument, CO 80132-1742. Alternatively, you can drop off payment at Covered Treasures Bookstore at the corner of 2nd and Washington streets in downtown Monument. If you would prefer to purchase the space using a card or PayPal account, please let me know and I will gladly send you instructions on how to do that.


When you buy space in advance like this, you aren't obligated to run any particular size ad or to run in any particular issues. You are just buying the space. We hold that on account until you are ready to use it. Unlike advertising contracts, it's risk-free: If you find you bought more space than you need, you can get a refund for unused space at the ad rate you paid.

  • Save about 3.2% on color ads by purchasing advertising space in advance and locking in the old surcharge for color. 

  • Your payment for the advance purchase of ad space must be received by June 1st.

  • 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.
