How often will it be published?
The issues will be monthly and other than January, the publication dates are TBA at the moment.
How can a business/organization advertise?
We have different advertising opportunities to fit the budget of our clients. The sizes include:
Post-Its | $200
Three to four full-pages in each section are designated for Post-Its. In each page, we will collage 5-7 products or services our local business offer. The picture will have a tag along that will have the name of the product, the price, a small description, the business name, and a website or phone number so the Post-It  always tie back to the business. The goal of these pages is to showcase the products and services local businesses offer at the comfort of the reader’s home or place of choosing.
Horizontal Banner | $325
Vertical Banner | $350
Both banners will be strategically and graphically placed in pages with reading content. The goal of these ads is to catch the reader’s attention while they are browsing through the body text of a page.
Half Page | $380
This type of ad will be available for a limited time only (six to twelve months). We split the pages in half in order to cater to businesses with a lower budget for advertising.
Full Page | $700
This type of ad will tag along with content pages throughout the different sections and so the advertiser will have the pleasure to choose what page they would like to tag along with to have exposure to the desired market.
Table of Contents Full Page | $800
The table of contents by nature is the most visited page in the magazine. The magazine will not have many headlines in the front cover (to keep the visual clean), and so the reader will be compelled to browse the table of contents.
Full Spread | $1100
This type of ad is made to fully maximize the exposure of the business. The advertiser will have two full pages for his ad. These pages are spread throughout the magazine allowing the advertiser exposure inside and outside of the different sections.
Back Cover | $1750
Second to the front cover, the back cover is the type of advertisement that will always be seen at all times. Whether the magazine is open or closed, the business will still have exposure at all times.
Front Cover | $2000
The front cover is usually chosen by The Avenue Magazine team because it introduces the main feature story of the month. However, if an advertiser was to purchase the front cover, the design must be worked out by both the Visuals and Graphic Director of The Avenue Magazine and the advertiser.
Ad Design | $100
We encourage advertisers to use this service to be able to get the best Visuals and Graphics to maximize exposure. Service includes a photo shoot and the making of the ad. Illustrations and design will be shared with the advertiser to use for any other marketing they may need.
Additional Marketing Services | $ to be determined
Web design
Professional photography
Graphic design
What kind of content can we expect to see?
The magazine is not intended to be an ad flip book. The ad to content ratio is one to three (1:3). There will be different sections throughout the magazine to be able to cover the wide spectrum of businesses Glendora offers:

Health and Beauty
Food and Beverages
Reading (features and editorials)

Do you accept contributor articles/photos?
Yes we do.
Anything else you would like the readers to know?
Help us spread the word! Locals do not know all of the incredible businesses, residents, and community we have and we want to share that with the Glendora community. We are looking to promote growth in the city by encouraging residents and locals to shop in our local businesses. We have had all our share of struggles with the development of our businesses and community and we want to see Glendora and her residents prosper as a community as a whole.
