    Payment must accompany any advertisement order. Payment can be made either with a check or via bank transfer.
     
    To pay by check, please mail your check made payable to Great Lakes Planetarium Association (or GLPA) to GLPA’s Treasurer.
     
    Advertisers who wish to pay by bank transfer must pay an additional $50 to cover the additional fees incurred by both the sending and receiving financial institutions. For more information, please contact GLPA’s Treasurer Cheri Adams at tres@glpa.org
     
    The newsletter is rendered as a PDF file for both the digital edition and the printed edition. The printed version of the newsletter is currently produced and mailed out by Dale Smith in Bowling Green, Ohio. The printed newsletter is printed on high-end photocopy machines. Since these machines cannot copy edge-to-edge, a narrow white (unprinted) border appears on every printed page. To ensure that nothing is cut off when rendered by the printing process, the Newsletter Editor re-sizes and positions all page elements to avoid this border.
     
    Ads must be camera-ready and may be either color or black & white. Full page ads may be sent as either a full page PDF file or as a suitably proportioned graphic image (jpg preferred). Smaller sized ads must be sent as a suitably proportioned graphic image (jpg preferred) so that the Newsletter Editor can fit it onto a page with other ads or newsletter articles.
     
    To ensure fair treatment, half-page ads for multi-issue purchases are alternated in their placement between the top half and bottom half of the page (assuming that the other half of the page is also an advertisement). To further ensure fair treatment, the relative placement of ads within the newsletter is changed from one issue to the next.
     
    GLPA reserves the right to refuse ads. GLPA's liability is limited to the cost of the ad. Deadlines for all submissions to the GLPA Newsletter are as follows:

    February 1 -- Spring Equinox issue
    May 1 -- Summer Solstice issue
    August 1 -- Autumnal Equinox issue
    November 1 -- Winter Solstice issue
     
    Advertisers who wish their ad to carry over to the next issue do not need to resend their ad if there are no changes. So long as the advertiser's contract with GLPA hasn't expired, the Newsletter Editor will insert the same ad as before unless he/she is informed otherwise. Advertisers with a current contract who wish to change their ad may submit their new ad as late as the 15th of the months of February, May, August, and November, for the respective issues described above.
