Rate Card

This is a sampling of various ad sizes
Ads can be one, two or three columns wide and any height starting with one inch increasing by as little as one tenth of an inch to 15.6 inches.

Classifieds

Classifieds can be placed one week at a time. The rate is 25¢ per word, with a minimum of $5 per week. This will be a standard 9pt Arial font with all words running consecutively after each other. For Custom classified ads that can look like a mini display ad. The cost per size is the same as above, but with this you can get special fonts, sizes and color. Images/logo can be included at no additional charge. We only require that you commit to 12 consecutive weeks for the custom classified ad. Your ad can still change weekly without any additional charge.

Classifieds are currently billed out at $4 per square inch. So the base ad size of $5 is actually 1.28 square inches.

Our classified column width is 1.6 inches.

To figure your own classified ad size, it is 1.6″ by the height, then multiply it by $4 to get the actual cost. We do round up and down to eliminate any cents.

Readership Demographics

The Tidbits paper is distributed around both Linn & Johnson Counties to many area businesses and institutions. See a list of many of these businesses on our site listed under distribution locations.

We try to include material that can interest individuals of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Our topics are such that people of all education levels can appreciate reading and enjoy the added features such as hocus focus and other fun things to do.

Research provided by Circulation Verification Council shows "pass along"readership to be 4.5 readers per copy. Therefore, our estimated circulation is over 60,000 readers.

We do our best to get every paper read at least once. Therefore we will remove all old issues from our distribution locations and leave them at a secondary location such as Senior Care Facilities, hospitals and the IA City Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
