To place an ad in the
Classified Ads please use one of the following:
The Upper Dauphin Sentinel's rate per weekly issue for Classified "word" ads is $7.50 for the first 20 words plus 8 cents for each additional word. For an extra $7.50, a 1-column-wide photo or logo may be added to a classified word ad. Our rate per issue for Legal Notices is 24 cents per word plus an additional $7.50 for one notarized proof of publication. Every legal notice should receive a notarized proof of publication. We will need an address to which to mail the proof of publication. All Legal Notices must be billed to an established advertising account or pre-paid by credit card.
Classified Display advertisements cost $8.15 per column inch. For example, a 2 column x 2-inch Classified Display ad (business-card size) ad will cost $31.80
Classified Ads must be pre-paid by cash, check or credit card, or billed to an established advertising account.
To prepay by cash or check, please bring or mail ad with payment to the Upper Dauphin Sentinel office Monday to Friday 8:00 am. to 4:30 p.m. Or, ad and payment may be dropped in a slot located on the double white doors at the back of the courtyard between the two wings of our building that face Union Street (Route 209).
To pre-pay by credit card, please call 717-692-4737 ext. 100 to provide your credit card number, expiration date, exact name on your card, the number in your street address, zip code and telephone number of the credit card owner; or, email that information to email@example.com. Sometimes we need the 3-digit security code on the back of the card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. If you need a receipt for your credit card payment, we will gladly fax it to you upon request or reply by email with all the information. We do not have a secure email system so you may prefer to call instead of emailing that info. We do not keep credit card information on file.
To establish an account with us, customers must complete our credit application and the application must be approved by us. Accounts will be established only for customers who advertise on a regular basis with the Upper Dauphin Sentinel ($20 monthly minimum). First-time advertisers will be required to pre-pay the first ad even if you fill out our credit application.
Tear sheets must be requested. We will send a tearsheet for display ads at no extra cost; but a tearsheet for a word ad costs an extra $1.00.
Our Classified ad deadline for ads and payment is 4 p.m. Thursdays (unless a holiday falls on a Thursday or a Friday in which case our deadline is Wednesdays at 4 p.m.)
Ads appearing in the Tuesday edition of the Upper Dauphin Sentinel will appear on this Web site Thursday of that same week.
