With advertising deadlines

As a general rule, The Lansing Journal is published on the first Wednesday of each month. Final advertising artwork is due by noon on the Friday before. We can often accommodate last-minute changes over the weekend or on the Monday before press day, but the likelihood of errors in your ad increases as deadlines loom.

2019 will begin with an exception to the general rule of publication dates—we will publish on the second Wednesday, January 9, rather than the first Wednesday.
