Let your community know about graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, obituaries, and more
(Pandemic Special—pay whatever you can!)
Though COVID-19 has forced people to observe careful distances, families, schools, and businesses are innovating new ways to make connections. The Lansing Journal understands the importance of milestone celebrations in a community. As a small business, we rely on revenue from ads and announcements to keep reporting and distributing news, so if you are able to pay us to run your announcement, we will gladly accept whatever you can give. If not, don’t worry about it. We still want to help you celebrate.
If you’d like to announce a graduation, special anniversary, new baby, or other milestone—you can now do so in your community newspaper.
If you’d like to provide your own artwork, use the dimensions and specifications below for best results. If you’d like us to design your announcement, send us the photos and information and we’ll put something together.
- Announcement dimensions: 640 x 480px (horizontal layout) or 640 x 850px (vertical layout)
- File format: PNG or JPG (though we can convert other formats as well)
- Deadline: If you want your announcement to appear online by a specific date, please let us know when placing your order. If you’d like us to design your announcement, please give us a one-week lead time. Our turnaround is quick, but we have multiple clients, and the news schedule fluctuates as well, so the more notice you can give us, the better.
Your announcement will be included in our Daily News, which is emailed to more than 2,000 subscribers. We will also share it to The Lansing Journal Facebook page, where you’ll be able to tag your friends and family.
