Old English Times (OET) & YEARBOOK

** MESSAGE From editor Dea Freiheit regarding OESCA YEARBOOK**

Hi OES Lovers,

 It's time for me to get busy with the Yearbook. We have not had an OESCA Yearbook for 11 years and we are about to change that! I am working on the Yearbook now. We expect a delivery date of mid-September. It will be at least 224 pages and have lots of great stuff in it, including, hopefully, your ad!

Ads can be for anything involving your OES! Beloved pet, BIS winner – it doesn't matter – all dogs deserve being celebrated.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Yearbook! It's an important part of OES history and you will be a part of that history by advertising!

 Here are the basics:

• Ads are $100 each. The entire Yearbook will be in color. NO B/W offered. Full page ads only.
• 3 pictures / page - $5 for each additional picture.
• All ads are due by August 31, 2020 (EXTENDED DEADLINE DUE TO COVID-19)

Layout Requirements:

 • The layout requirements for ads are identical as those for the OET. Pages are 8.5" x 11" with an extra 1/8" bleed (the outside extra amount on all 4 sides).
•  All important parts of the ad should be within a ½" margin inside the page on all 4 sides. Pictures must be at least 300dpi.•
You don't need to do your ad layout if you don't want to. I can do that for you. If so, use this FORM: OESCA-YEARBOOK-Ad-Submission-Form – one for each page.
• If you don't have scans of your pictures or artwork, please mail them to me and I will scan them for you.
• Remember to include a self-addressed stamped envelope so I can send back any original photos and materials to you.

• Please e-mail me your ad forms at dea@snowdowne.com. (No texts, tweets, messengers, or instagrams please.)
• When you email your pictures to me, PLEASE SEND THEM AS ATTACHMENTS, not in the body of the email.
• Call me with questions, (206) 409-1837.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Yearbook.
