Advertising in the RG

Posted by on Jul 30, 2014 in Purchases

An insert will be placed in the Saturday RG, reaching 9,000 subscribers in the Cottage Grove, Creswell, Pleasant Hill, Dexter, Fall Creek, Lowell and Oakridge areas.  The cost for this to happen is $369.00, approximately $100.00 for paper, and $100.00 to print.  This figure is substantially smaller than the previously approved mailers and hits more homes.

I would like to send out a mailer to 5260 households/po boxes. Here is the cost breakdown.

  • USPS Every Door Mailer costs: $920.48
  • Kinkos printing costs: $942.01 (cost is more than the attached quote because the quote is for 5,000)
  • iStockPhoto images: $99.99
  • Total: $1,962.48

We don’t currently have a line item in our budget for marketing, but I would like to proceed with this in order to increase our enrollment to 102 students.
