advertising information
Our ad prices are prorated based roughly on the ad's area. While our typical layout uses three 3.25" columns, we are flexible enough to accomodate ads of any dimension. We offer several discounts that can be combined to make advertising with us "dirt cheap."
So, for example, a first time advertiser who buys a full page ad in four issues receives a 15% discount on each $200 ad, or just $170 per ad. If you are interested in advertising with us or would like more information please e-mail us at thistle admins.

For the time being, we have a rolling publication date - we publish monthly. Please contact us for the next date of publication and submission deadline.
