Magazine Advertising Rates


Please submit your ad requests for 2019 through our ADVERTISING REQUEST FORM. 

Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and are subject to space availability. Please allow 2 weeks processing time for all requests. Your ads are not confirmed until you receive (1) a confirmation email from GGMG indicating your reserved issues and (2) invoice(s) from our bookkeeper. Please do not send payment until you have received your invoice(s).  As soon as you receive your confirmation email, please enter the payment and artwork deadline dates in your calendar. We send reminders for each issue, but YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for sending payment and artwork on time. Late payments will result in cancellation of your reservation.
 
GGMG Magazine is published every other month, with a total of 6 issues per year. You may advertise in up to 2 issues per year. We typically receive more requests than we can accommodate. For months that are sold out, we do maintain a waitlist, and most months do have some movement off of the waitlist. 
 
If you already have an ad reservation with us, please see below for important information on payment and artwork deadlines, payment instructions and artwork specifications.
 
Thank you for your interest in advertising with us!
