Issue 26 is on target

Hi folks, as you can see we are on the rails again and in better shape than the railway.

We have had a major staff re-jig and come up with a compromise that works, basically none of us do sales anymore, we send email and then it's up to the advertisers to supply us with both artwork and money before deadline, its been tough on some but it's working.

So anyway, we are back to three monthly printing, if you want in contact the boys at ksgadsales(at)gmail.com

Copies will be available from April 1st.


So this time we have to thank...

Advertising With The Kampot Survival Guide (KSG)

When We Print And Deadlines For Advertising

  1. The next edition of The Kampot Survival Guide goes to print on the 1st April.
  1. Submission of - and payment for - your advertisement must be received by us no later than March 15th This is to allow us time to collate the magazine prior to print and ensure that it is distributed punctually.
  2. In the event that you submit an advertisement to us but we have not received payment for your advertisement by March 15th, we will not be able to print your advertisement.
  3. In the event that you pay us for advertising space but do not provide us with your advertising graphic or image by March 15th, we will run your advertisement as a plain text ad (no graphic) identifying your business or organisation as the advertiser.
  4. We cannot accept any advertisement that is lodged after this date nor can we accept any request for changes to an advertisement after the March 15th deadline.

What Image Format You Should Use For Your Advertisement
  1. Your advertisement can be given to us in either JPEG or PNG formats.
  1. We request that you do not submit your advertisement to us in any other format as it may be totally incompatible with our desktop publishing software or require extensive manipulation resulting in a loss of clarity and impact of your advertisement.

Types And Sizes Of Advertising Spaces

  1. Advertising spaces in The Kampot Survival Guide are available in either Banner, Portrait or Half Page configurations. A Banner or Portrait equates to a quarter page of advertising space.
  1. A Banner size space is Width 138mm x Height 48mm.
  2. A Portrait sized space is Width 69mm x Height 97mm.
  3. A Half Page is Width 138mm x Height 97mm.
    Note: It is strongly recommended that your advertisement is designed to accurately fit the above sizes and displays well before you give it to us. We will endeavour to resize your advertisement if the size is incorrect however the resizing may once again result in a loss of clarity and impact of your advertisement.

What Your Advertisement Should Look Like Before You Give It To Us

  1. You can submit your advertisement to us in colour or in grey-scale (black and white).
  1. It is strongly recommended that your advertisement image is of the highest quality possible before you submit it.
  2. As a general guide, your advertisement will present best in the hard copy of our magazine if it is crisp, sharp, uncluttered and eye catching when viewed as a grey-scale image.
  3. If you give us your advertisement as a colour image, we will convert it to grey-scale for printing in the hard copy of the magazine. Your advertisement will display in colour in the downloadable PDF version.
    Note: the design and creation of your advertisement is your responsibility. We do not have the resources i.e. a graphic design department to create the advertisement for you
Our Fees For Advertising

  1. Our costs for Advertising have been simplified. For three months of advertising, the prices are:
  1. A Quarter page Banner or Portrait space inside the magazine is $20.
  2. A Half Page space is $40
  3. A Front Page Banner (quarter page) space is $40
    Note: The Front Page Banner space will be available on a first in – first served basis i.e. the first person, business or organisation to request the space and submit their advertisement to us together with payment.
Note: If you have a preference for where your advertisement appears in the KSG, we will attempt to allocate that space to you. Please be aware that it will not always be possible for us to do this when there are competing demands for a space or the layout of the magazine precludes it.

How To Submit Your Advertisement And Your Payment To Us

    6. You can submit your advertisement to us in either of the following ways:

You will be given a form to complete stating Name, Business Name, Contact Phone Number, E-Mail address and the type of Advertising Space you want – Banner, Portrait or Half Page. Your completed form, flash drive and payment will be placed in an envelope for KSG staff to collect. You will be provided with a receipt for your payment.
