The Virginia Hills Echo circulates five times a year, in February, April, June, September, and December, to the more than 855 households in Virginia Hills, to our advertisers, and to friends, making a total circulation of about 875.
Ad deadlines are roughly the end of the third week of the month prior to publication. For example, the deadline for the February issue would be roughly the Friday of the third week in January.

The preferred formats for ads include Adobe PDF or MS Word. If your ad contains an image or images, the image(s) should also be provided separately in any standard image format; .JPG or .TIF are preferred. E-mail these to the Advertising Manager.
You may provide a paper copy of your ad instead. However, for the best appearance of your ad, you should also provide us with the actual photograph (in color or black and white) or any image in the ad.

The Echo reserves the right to alter ads for visual clarity and to reject on a case-by-case basis business card-sized ads that contain too much text and too little white space or contain images too small to render clearly.
