Advertising Deadlines & Cancellation
For new advertisers, the full invoice amount will be needed for the first ad prior to publication based upon a determination of credit history. Space must be paid for with equal payments of the balance received on a quarterly basis for campaigns (full year/multiple issues,) and within 30 days of invoicing date. Sending artwork constitutes acknowledgement and agreement of our Terms & Conditions.
All advertising materials must be with us by: 5 February, 5 May, 5 August and 5 November. Once an advertisement is agreed (e-mail being sufficient), if an ad fails to arrive, the full amount for the ad will still be charged. Due to strict adherence to deadlines, once the advertising insertion is agreed, we cannot refund any portion in the event of cancellation, apathy, sudden last-minute changes-of-mind, in-house production problems due to overnight staff shortages or other, unforeseen or mitigating, circumstances on the advertiser’s part, and the full rate for the space will be billed.
Advertising artwork must be emailed to: email@example.com (lo res) and to our FTP site (please see full contact details below). For new advertisements, a proof will be supplied. Please note that screentrade reserves the right to request modification of, or even to refuse, advertising material if considered to be inappropriate or offensive.
Advertisements of ‘non-uniform’ size
The full spectrum of advertisement sizes is depicted below. For non-uniform sizes, whose proportions cannot be easily adjusted, screentrade reserves the right to include a frame or border to ensure best fit on the page.
Subsequent changes to the same copy (e.g., for a repeat insertion needing a tradeshow booth number, changing a contact number) will attract a nominal design charge if artwork not supplied to us -- typically £8-10 or $20. Also, for artwork that is not supplied according to the comprehensive formats requested (see “ad. Dimensions & Mechanical Data”, below), additional design charges may apply. Through its design teams, screentrade offers a bespoke advertising service. Please ask for details.
Invoicing, Pre-payment Discounting, Wiring and Debt Collection
All advertisements are to be pre-paid; for established accounts, terms will be up to 30 days as per invoice, the latter of which will be emailed. After 30 days, interest will be levied at the rate of 8%. Any failure of payment requiring the services of a debt collection agency will result in the debtor being responsible for any and all charges levied by the collection agency or any other agency associated with the debt collection process.
Please also advise at the time of order if tear sheets (ad slicks) will be required.
Please note that wire transfers into our US account involve a fee, added to your invoice. Kindly call in advance of wiring to determine the fee in effect at the time.
