Non Profit Advertising Rates

With as many Leather community events these days it is imperative that you advertise your run, anniversary and/or contest. Successful events include display advertising as part of their promotion strategy. The Leather Journal reaches over 50,000 readers each month and has been serving the Leather community since May 1987.

As an added bonus, we will give you a link to your event in the Leather Community Calendar on once payment for your ad has been received. Take a look at The Leather Community Calendar and notice the links to events that are there already. These folks made the wise investment of advertising in The Leather Journal. Ad links are not sold separately. Literally hundreds of events are listed here and all are competing for attendance. Those who advertise have a huge advantage here.

Below are the non profit organization advertising rates for The Leather Journal. There are three sizes only in the non profit category. Smaller sizes pay the business rate. Thank you for your interest.

Best Times To Advertise Your Event
It's best to advertise your club event or contest two and three months prior to it taking place. If yours is a national or international event, run three and four months ahead to allow people to make travel arrangements. Vendors advertise the month of the event and the month before. Allow at least 21 days of visibility for your ad to be effective. The Leather Journal takes at least five business days to reach the East coast.
