TC Advertising Insert Specifications

If your organization would like to place an insert for advertising with Tone Cluster, the following guidelines apply:

  • Insert sizes must be no larger than 5” wide x 8” high to ensure they fit into the printed programme
  • The advertiser is responsible for all costs and logistics associated with producing the insert
  • Due to the choir’s limited personnel resources, the advertiser will need to provide assistance for ‘stuffing’ the insert into the printed programmes (one or two volunteers to help with the ‘stuffing effort’, as arranged with the advertising coordinator)
  • Only one insert will normally be allowed per programme, so please reserve your space early to guarantee availability.
