An advertorial is a type of advertisement that provides detailed information in the form of an article, even though it is paid content. It is a unique opportunity for a company to connect with its target audience through case studies or narratives, rather than a traditional ad in a publication or a banner ad on a website. 

Advertorials in the ACLP Bulletin may be one or two interior pages in length, and there is a two-page limit for advertorial content per issue. The words "Paid Advertisement" will appear in small letters at the top of all advertorials.


Full-Page Interior Bleed: 8.75"w x 11.25"h
[Trim is 8.5"w x 11"h]
No bleed: 7.5"w x 10"h
Two-Page Spread    $1,800 
All ads and advertorials are subject to approval by ACLP.

* Cancellation Policy: Customers who reserve ad or advertorial space and later cancel those positions will be contractually obligated to pay all premiums if those positions are not resold.
