Cold Cut Comics Distribution

Advertising Rate Sheet

Cold Cut Distribution accepts advertisements for its irregular catalog, the Cold Cut Bulletin. as well as the semi-annual large special catalog, the Cold Cut Prime.

The Bulletin is mailed out a few times each year to over 600 independent-friendly retailers who have shown an active interest in promoting, carrying and stocking independent comics in their stores. Other copies of the Bulletin are distributed to retailers at trade shows; during on-site store visits; and through publisher referrals.

Each issue of the Bulletin is an active part of many retailers' lives for months - many place more than one reorder per month, and each order placed involves at least one pass through the Bulletin. Other retailers find themselves using the Bulletin as a stocking guide, and walk their store with their copy, marking down which issues or titles they may be low on.

Now you can place an ad in this key industry publication for a fraction of the cost of direct mail to retailers - ensuring multiple exposures to the people you need to reach most - the indy-friendly retailers.

Advertisements may be reserved on a first-come first-served basis.

Efforts will be made to place advertisements adjacent to book listings, but cannot be guaranteed. Please indicate a suggested location if desired. Limited space is available for ads in each Bulletin.

Ads are black & white only. Ads must be camera-ready (no production or paste-up provided at Cold Cut). You may supply camera-ready artwork or send it on 3.5" disk, in TIFF format at 300 dpi. You may also email or send a URL by which we can download the ad, by .
