Journal Advertising

The Community Associations Journal is published 9 times per year and is distributed to over 2,000+ readers. Primarily, those readers are community association board members and community association managers. In addition, every issue of the Community Associations Journal is available digitally for online viewing, and if advertisers include their web address and/or email address in their display ad, viewers can access the advertiser’s website and contact the advertiser via email with just one click when viewing their ad. Advertising is offered in many size variations with premium (limited quantity) options. Read below for specs, rates and other details on Journal advertising.

Print Terminology:

  • Live Area: Where all text and important information/content should be placed.
  • Trim Line: Where the printed pages are cut (trimmed) to during the print/binding process.
  • Bleed Edge: Where the art of an ad should extend to past the trim line. When pages are cut to size in the binding process, it is impossible to be precise, so having the art bleed past the trim line will ensure there is no white space showing due to uneven cutting.
