Publisher's Statement

We currently print 7,500 hard copies of Sibrydion. We also distribute it through the internet, as an electronic file to a mailing list. We estimate that there are at least 14,000 readers (a modest estimate) and maybe more, who look out for it when it is published, and for many, delivered to their doors. The readership like the local information and local interest articles, and keep the magazine for reference for the adverts and events. Regular advertisers have the benefit of having events promoted also in an email bulletin of events which is sent out to a large mailing list, weekly, which is simply an additional complimentary service, to help advertisers to increase attendance at their events. The circulation area is listed on the front of the magazine, and Sibrydion is now being distributed as far up the coast as Harlech as well, as more volunteers have identified themselves.


* Files for adverts are to be submitted in jpeg format in highest resolution, minimum 300 dpi, and preferably emailed to the publisher. Until a new system is adopted (afforded) pdfs cannot be imported into the magazine. High-quality files are required. Our designer Ian Clewett, of can produce an advert for an advertiser if you need a good design, but it is a private transaction between you and the designer, this is not a bolt-on cost going to Sibrydion. Ian designs quite a few adverts for our advertisers and they are all great adverts, which make the businesses stand out and look professional.

* Sizes of files required to fit:

1/8th page 4.5cm x 6.5cm

1/6th page 6.5cm x 6.5cm

1/4 page 9.25 x 6.5cm

1/3 page 6.5cm x 12.25cm

1/2 page 9.25cm x 12.25cm

full page 18.5cm x 12.25cm

Every endeavour is made to get invoices out promptly. We welcome payment in advance, on booking, by credit card, as invoices are sent by email once the booking is taken, followed by a receipt. If no email, they are printed and posted. Payment is requested by return on receipt of the invoice, within 7 days.

On the 14th day after sending the invoice, a late payment fee of £20 will be added to the amount charged, which will also be due from that day. To avoid this, please pay promptly. We do our best to give you good value for money.

Quick payment is necessary as this is a very small and largely community enterprise publication, and so there are not large reserves to pay for the printing or the admin and distribution costs. It is vital that our clients recognize this and help us to help them by paying promptly. The magazine can survive as long as we can pay for the costs. Every payment is needed to do this.

I think the magazine has really matured into something that people look forward to, want to pick up and read and like to refer back to. That makes the advertising good value for money.

You've done a great job and I hope you can keep it going
