Display Advertising Specifications

At present we offer two sizes of display advertisements in The Gulf Islands Directory.  

The customer must supply the images. Contact the editor if you require help in making your banner.  Animation is OK but to avoid a "flashy" experience for our readers, please keep the minimum duration of each frame to 3 seconds.

We ask you to keep your advertising images within the given specifications.  Surcharges exist for increased file sizes because large files cause slower loading times and reduce both the quality of the browser's experience and therefore the ultimate earning potential of the page.
