There is no need to resize the photos. If you can send the photos as a zip (compressed) file they are faster to send. Call for more information on sending zip files.
Late ads will be accepted IF space and time permit. Ad deadlines may be adjusted due to holidays, advance notice will be included in prior issues of the paper. Please call if you have any questions.
