Specifications for Advertising are:

  • All artwork is to be submitted at 300dpi at full size.

  • 1/2 page = 184mm x130mm (Landscape)
  • 1/4 page = 90mmx130mm (Portrait)
  • Please can everyone also supply a JPEG copy of their advert to check that it looks as expected.

Perhaps give hints as to what your glass likes and dislikes are so that you can plan your gift. This isn’t meant to be a life story, but a nice way, one on one to get to know another member a little better!

You must be ready to post your gift by 1st February, and message your other half to confirm gift is on it’s way.

So who wants to join in and feel the love? ?
