Intro Our Readers Ad Submissions Rates, Sizes & Terms
We design your ad - FREE!
Ads created by TGH are for use in TGH only, but may be purchased separately for other uses.
We provide one proof by fax, hard copy or email for your approval. Ads not acknowledged by the advertiser within three working days will run "as is." One set of changes is allowed at no additional charge. Extra changes will be billed at our discounted graphic design rate.
If you will be providing any part of your ad electronically, see below for specific requirements.
Design your own ad by following our specifications.

We accept ads: *QuarkXPress *Photoshop *PDF *EPS or TIFF or MacIntosh.

We reserve the right to edit or redesign any advertisement that fails to meet our standards.
Files that do not meet our specifications may incur additional design charges for correction.
