Local4All Placemats continues to provide quality advertising at a great price with our second printing of 2016.  THE PRICE GETS BETTER THE MORE YOU BUY!  Our formula for bulk pricing is shown below.

  1. Tier 1.. your 2x2 ad on the first 10,000 placemats for $100
  2. Tier 2... a second space, aka placing a double ad instead of single ad, increases the price by ONLY $50.  Same for a single ad on another 10,000 mats.  You save $50.
  3. Tier 3, also known as our bonus pricing.... either another space or a single space on another 10,000 placemats for JUST $35.
    • Total savings for a single ad on 30,000 placemats = $115, MORE THAN 35% off.  Compare $300 to $185 and you'll see what we mean!
    • Total savings for a double ad on 20,000 placemats = $180 or 45% off.  Compare $400 to $220.  We think you will like it.  More options available, call for details.

 

Welcome to all for the year 2017.  We will be providing our same low-cost advertising on our placemats.  Special prices will be offered on select placemats and we also plan to have special placemats for fundraising for local nonprofit organizations.

IF YOU WILL...!  Please help keep us in touch with your favorite nonprofit organizations so we can support them AND their mission.  Even if a nonprofit is outside our normal distribution areas, we can print a SPECIAL placemat for a SPECIAL purpose at any time.  They will receive a portion of the proceeds (sales) and their organization will be featured in the center of the placemat.  WIN-WIN-WIN.

Regular pricing as of 1/1/2017:

  • Your single ad on 10,000 placemats for $100.
  • Add an extra space (2"x4") or an extra 10,000 placemats for $50.
    • The total for a double ad on 10K or a single ad on 20K would be the same price = $150.  Total for a single ad on 30,000 would be $185 ($150+$35).  See next bullet.
  • Extra spaces and/or additional increments of 10,000 for only $35 each.
  • Ad sponsorships start @ $75 and may include more than one area at the same price.  The ad sponsor's name and phone number are included so the benefit is twofold:  recognition of support for your community AND advertising all in one.
  • Ongoing advertisers will receive a 14% discount on each order, 18% off if ongoing in more than one area.

New Year's Pricing (must be purchased in January):

  • First time buyer:  Take $20 off our regular pricing.
  • Returning buyers:  $15 off our regular price for each ad space ($30 for double ads, etc.)

Please join us in welcoming Jennifer to our sales team (also acting as office manager) and we want to congratulate Andrew Bowser for 2 1/2 years as of January 2017.  He has been a great help.

 

BASIC PRICING:  (changed several times over the past several years)

The first 10,000 in an order is ALWAYS $100 except when we do a special like we just announced.  The next 10,000 in that order is only $50 and every 10,000 after that is $35.... for that order.

Limited Time Special #1:  For first time advertisers, buy space on 30,000 placemats in our Alle-Kiski area and get your next 10,000 free.  Bottom line:  your 2x2 ad on 40,000 placemats for just $185.  Contract must include our 05AK placemat (20K) plus 20K more of your choice.

Limited Time Special #2:  For returning advertisers, same as above if you have been away for two years or more.  In most cases, we can find your last ad and send a copy to you for your review and updates.

Limited Time Special #3:  In our Indiana area, your 2x2 ad on 20,000 placemats for $120 or a double ad (2x4) on the same 20,000 placemats for just $199.

We have an ongoing commitment to help "Get the word out for less" in the communities we serve but, like all other companies, we need to keep the lights on and beans in the pantry.  Please spread the word to small and medium size businesses that we can help.  Thanks, Carl

My name is Vincent Cogley and I'm a twenty-two year-old fast food worker and blacksmith, I contacted Carl recently looking for additional work and here I am. I look forward to working with everyone and helping out however I can.

Carl here adding a few comments of my own, I'd like to remind Vince he created a Facebook page for our company within his first eight clock hours plus he and Andrew edited a Google fundraising document simultaneously while I had both of them on speakerphone... Vince at his home in Vandergrift and Andrew downstairs in our office.  If you don't know the power of Google Drive, we need to talk.

February deadlines are approaching fast so if you need advertising in the pre-summer months, now is the time to decide what you need where.

Prices are as low as they have ever been with our new pricing model.  Duration is normally two months for each issue.

Deadlines soon on the following areas:

  • AKAP - 20,000 (quantity to be printed)
  • AKLV - 10,000
  • Butler - 10,000
  • Indiana - 10,000
  • NKLB - 10,000
  • 01SEBCo v2 - 20,000 (expected to last 4-5 weeks)

Call your sales representative soon.  If you don't have one, check our "About Us" page.

For local businesses who need to ramp up going into the summer months, now is the time to get your information out there.  For commercial landscapers and anyone wanting to target more corporate clients, it's almost TOO late.  You never know when their decision-maker is going to sit down in front of one of our placemats.  By the time they take a look at 2016, they have forgotten you.

Need good prices now?  Call one of our sales representatives today.

Basic Pricing: 

  • $100 for the first 10,000
  • $50 for the second 10,000 (total for 20,000 would be $150)
  • $35 for each 10,000 over the first 20,000

Each purchase can be considered for bundle pricing if the entire order is placed at one time.

In our office, we say "Good Morning". As the calendar pages turn, it's barely past New Years' when it seems time for "Happy New Year" again.  Our "every year" resolution is to help you get the word out for less for your company's best products and services.

Pricing in general: $100 for the first 10,000 in an area plus lower pricing per thousand for additional blocks of 10,000:

  • $150 for 20,000 (2nd 10K = $50, half price)
  • $185 for 30,000 (3rd 10K = $35, even less per thousand)
  • $220 for 40,000, etc.

Discounts are automatically applied to ongoing customers' invoices:  14% for "ongoing" (also known as "re-ups" or "renewals") in one service area, 18% for automatic renewals in two or more areas.  Call anytime to reserve space on ANY future placemat issue.  You can also choose which space(s) you want on a first come first serve.  Want the top left space?  Reserve it.  Bottom right?  It's yours if you get there first.

At Local4All, we wish you the MOST PROSPEROUS of New Years!  We hope to be part of it.

Please keep in mind that one of the best gifts you can give this Holiday season is keeping yourself and others on the road as ABSOLUTELY SAFE as you can.  Drive defensively and make sure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up 100% of the time.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from all of us at Local4All Advertising.
