Center Section

A four-page center section is printed in each edition of the Gazette. Businesses and organizations may place easy-to-pull-out center sections with their own content. If interested, it is a good idea to consult with Gazette staff as soon as possible to reserve a center section. Some issue dates are reserved for editorial content, and other may already be claimed by other organizations. See the publishing calendar for dates.

For more information, call the advertising department.

Base Price: $1,800
