Advertising Opportunities

placemap cover 2016

The GSFABA PlaceMap continues to be one of the most successful advertising tools for the Greater Shelburne Falls region. Approximately 30,000 copies are printed and distributed each year. The maps are distributed all over the region, at visitors centers, The Big E, and are mailed to most households in the West County hilltowns. Ads are sold on a first-come, first paid basis.

The map is printed in full color, and the color placement in each ad is chosen by the map designer, with the effectiveness of each ad in mind.

Advertisers must submit their own ad with the following specifications:

-PNG or TIFF Format (We cannot accept PDFs)
-1 5/8" wide by 1 3/8" high

If you do not have an ad, our designer can create one for you at an additional fee. 

2018 PlaceMap Rate: $265 per ad
