HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE...
Pretty much self-explanatory. Choose an ad size, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you want what you really really want, and we'll get you in the magazine. Follow the easy (or "EZ") steps below, which explain the formats we deal in. For those of you who are publishing-challenged, we have seven golden cheerleaders standing by to answer your questions. They can walk you through it while shaking their amber pom poms in your face.

A FEW MORE THINGS...
Files up to 2MBs you can send to our e-mail. Files over 2MBs should be sent via www.yousendit.com. Or send us a disc (and not a floppy, all you freak hold-outs). Or tie it to a migrating penguin and point him/her towards our office. Lastly, Pt 2: We reserve the right to not run an ad based on things like racism, sexism (leave that one to the editors), dumbshitism, etc. Basically, we'll let you know if your ad crosses the line. But most importantly - payment MUST accompany your ad or it will not run (we've been burned too many times). ALERT: Inside cover and back cover available on a first come basis (there's a joke in there somewhere). And speaking of payment...
