Advertising Rates for 2017

The Solway Buzz is a full colour tabloid format community paper which comprises at least 16 pages.
The Buzz is full of advertising because it is not only very good value, it works for the advertisers.
The print run is 4,200 copies for three winter issues and 5,500 copies for seven summer issues.
Charges are on a sliding scale, the larger the advert is, each column centimetre gets cheaper.
A team of over sixty volunteer distributors deliver it to households locally and it is also available
in shops, visitor attractions, hotels and caravan sites throughout the area.
