DISPLAY AD WITH EDITORIAL

This is a full-page ad divided into two sections. Half of the page is a display ad, and the other half is a text-only editorial (story) which describes the advertiser’s business activity.  This option is perfect for businesses that provide services which may be a little out of the ordinary and require more description to fully educate potential customers of the service being provided. Editorial copy is limited to 1500 characters (including spaces).
