Ad Run-ons and reprints
Ad run-ons and reprints act as low-cost promotional flyers. As an advertiser or contributor within a major feature or news page, The Snacks Magazine offers you the opportunity to order run-ons at the time of print or reprints at a later date. These could make a cost-effective contribution to your public relations campaign, exhibition presence or conference or supplement the information you provide to visitors. By ordering before press time, you can save on set-up costs.
This special service offers The Snacks Magazine advertisers the opportunity to mail, as inserts, their product catalogues or promotional brochures/leaflets to our mailing list of companies across the worldwide savoury snacks sector. This service applies to inserts of four pages or more and offers additional savings over regular insert rates. Contact the publisher for details.
