We offer very reasonable rates to advertise in the fanzine.


As of issue 3, the current rate is £10 for a full-page, colour advert (£12 for the back page, subject to availability). Each issue reaches around eighty paying readers, so that's approximate 12 pence per impression. At a later stage each issue will be made available to read for free on-line, further increasing the visibility of your advert.


Advertising space is limited in each issue, and we request that adverts are for products or services that would be of interest to users of Amstrad CPC computers.


Advert specification

Adverts should be A5 in size in at least 300 dpi (so 148x210mm / 1748 x 2480 pixels) but should also include an additional 3mm bleed area at each edge so that no white space is left when the pages are cut to size in the printing process (size with bleed: 154x216mm / 1819 x 2551 pixels).

Also, we recommend that within the main print area, you avoid putting any important headings or text within the outer 3mm before the bleed area.

We can accept adverts in PDF format (CMYK colours preferable) or a lossless image format such as PNG.
