Creating your Artwork

Supply your artwork​

Once you’ve requested our Media Kit and decided on what size advert you would like to book with us, you just need to supply us with your ad requirement or artwork and we’ll take care of the rest.

Need a hand?​

If you’re unsure of how to create the artwork we need, use our handy Editor’s Artwork Checklist as your guide. If you’re really stuck, we can design a basic advert for you free of charge, or if you want something a little more eye-catching that requires bespoke design, a charge will apply.

We can help​

As you can imagine, we are well connected. We have access to lots of professional creative people so, if you need help with a simple logo, advert design or wording or need extra support in mastering your marketing and brand image, we can put you in touch with the right people.

Don’t be late! Check our Artwork Deadlines​

CM17: 15th of each month prior to publication (all year round)

A range of options to suit everyone​

We like to keep our advertising costs as competitive as possible so we work hard to make sure they are always great value for our advertisers. We have a range of prices for one-off advertising or repeat advertising, where the cost of running your advert becomes cheaper the more ad space you book with us.

A great investment​

The cost of advertising with CM Connection Magazines is a great investment in your business, especially when you consider the targeted reach of over 27,000 you get in the CM23 and CM17 areas. By regularly advertising with us, our readers see your advert repeatedly, creating a sense of familiarity and trust; this is a proven way to gain more customers and successfully grow your local business.

Fantastic Discounts​

We offer fantastic discounts on advertising packages booked across both our publications - and we go that extra mile to support our local community organisations, schools and churches who can publicise their events absolutely free of charge on our popular community pages.

I have been advertising in the CM17 for a number of years. I have tried other ways of advertising but found Lorraine easy to deal with and a competitive price with a good return on investment. I have now extended to cover Bishop Stortford with the CM23 magazine. When the magazine is delivered, calls increase.
