Special Advertising Opportunities

Companies have a variety of advertising options to choose from, including run-of-book or special placement advertisements on a one-time or more frequent basis (for discounted rates). Other advertising opportunities include inserts, belly bands, poly bags, custom posters and reprints. Whatever your needs, IG Living can accommodate them!

Multiple opportunities maximize your marketing impact:

Product Directory

In each issue, display advertisers have an opportunity to promote their products for free in a minidirectory that includes a 100-word description and photo.

Belly Bands

Ideal for a product, service or special announcement. The band wraps around the entire magazine and must be removed before reading.

Inserts

Insert your pre-printed materials next to IG Living magazine and packaged in a poly bag. It will be the first material readers will see.

Custom Posters

We can economically print your advertising content in the poster size of your choice that can be displayed or mounted and UV-coated.

Electronic and Paper Reprints

Integrate reprints of your IG Living ads and/or editorial content in your promotional campaigns, and drive your audience to learn about the only publication targeting the IG community.
