TIP: Where you already have a designer or company that creates your advertising – we’ll work with them.
You can email photos, logos and copies of your old adverts to us too.
We’ll take your rough layout, photos and logo and design you a professional advert.
Once your design is complete we will post you two copies one to keep and one to send back to us – we can email a PDF version for you to check too – if that is easier.
Now either send your artwork back and we’ll make all the amendments and send you two more copies.
Or once your advert is correct write on one copy “Good to run”, sign and date it and then send it back to us in the FREEPOST envelope.
Or where we have sent you a copy by email simply replay saying your advert is “Good to run”
You will also get a copy of the magazine once it is published.
We’ll distribute the magazine to first year students in Halls as well as door-to-door in the main student areas.
Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for the calls, emails and extra traffic to your website.
