Claymore Advertisements — July/August Issue


The Claymore welcomes ads from SDCA members and other interested individuals.

Costs for advertisements vary depending upon their location in The Claymore.  Advertisements on inside pages (only) vary from $60 to $110, depending upon whether the ad is color or black-and-white.  Depending upon the location, costs for advertisements on the four limited sites (i.e., inside front cover, inside back cover, back cover and inside 2-page centerfold), vary from $125 to $250.  All special location ads are color and full-bleed.  There is no restriction on the number of inside page ads, but there is only one of each of the special location ads.

All ads are full-page ads.  Black and white inside page ads are 8½ by 11 inches.  All other ads are color ads, full-bleed (the ink goes all the way to the edge of the page), and are 8¾ x 11¼ inches.  See below for more information.

If you have any questions, please contact the editor, Sandy Eubank.

Is your ad already designed?  Camera-ready prices are $110 for color, and $50 for black-and-white electronically submitted ads sent as PDF (fonts embedded), jpeg, tif, Adobe Illustrator, eps, or PhotoShop files with 200-300 dots per inch (dpi) for all photographs.  Word documents may also be sent provided all photos are also scanned in one of the above formats and sent separately.  See below for more information.

Once you have paid, please send completed ads to the editor, Sandy Eubank..

Need help designing an ad? For a small fee, designer can help you from full design to simple paste up according to your idea. Please contact the editor Sandy Eubank for names of designers who can help.

All separate image fees have been discontinued.

 Please select your advertisement location.  If your preferred location is one of the limited sites and the option does not appear, it means that this special location has already been purchased for this July/August issue.

The Claymore is the official newsletter of the Scottish Deerhound Club of America (SDCA). Published 6 times per year, typical issues include regional reports from, articles on Deerhound health and husbandry, litter announcements, and plenty of photographs of Deerhounds. The Claymore also contains information about future events, such as National and Regional specialties, supported entries, and lure coursing.

The Claymore is mailed to all SDCA members. You can also subscribe to The Claymore without being a member — no application needed.  The pages of The Claymore are open to all responsible editorial contributions and advertisements by Club members and interested individuals.  While the Claymore will endeavor to publish all contributions, with the constraints of legal considerations and available space, publication in The Claymore does not constitute an endorsement of the content of those contributions by the SDCA Board of Directors or the editorial staff, unless specifically so described.

Camera-ready ads are already designed and ready to go to press — the images and text are placed on the page and look the way you want them to look.  All our designer needs to do is place the ad in the publication.  There are many software programs, including InDesign and Photoshop, as well as free programs (Canva, Scribus, Lucidpress, Vivadesigner, etc.), that allow you to design ads.

Full-bleed means that the ink goes all the way to the edge of the page.  There is no white margin. For more information (than you ever wanted to know) on these terms and how to lay out an ad:
