The deadline for the newsletter is midnight of Wednesday's general meeting of the month prior to publication (the general meeting occurs on the 3rd Wednesday of the month-see our Program page for schedule).This means that both your payment and camera-ready or digital artwork/text must be submitted by this date.

You can send the digital file directly to, camera-ready ads should accompany your payment, which goes to Delta Waldt, our Advertising Coordinator (see our address above). If you are sending a digital file, the payment also needs to be sent to Delta with a note letting her know that you are sending the digital file directly to Merle.

There will be an additional equal charge for any artwork/typesettting work that we need to do if you do not submit a full digital image or camera-ready work. The digital image must be a minimum of 300 dpi, and must be in black & white - no color or grayscale images, should be in .tif or .eps format. If you are going to submit a scanned image of your business card, then we can't be responsible for the clarity of the image in final print, it would be best to send the image file that your commercial printer used to create the card - this would likely already be in .tif or .eps format. Sometimes the paper used in a business card is textured or doesn't scan as well as we would like.
