All text directory listings and calendar entries are free to Hampton Roads businesses, organizations, and individuals (unless otherwise noted). The rates below are for graphic ads. Please note that we do not create or design your graphics ads. We only publish ads that you have provided us (Preferred resolution and format - 200-300 dpi JPEG). We reserve the right to resize your graphics and photos to fit the available space.

We support smaller non-profit and not-for-profit social groups, college and youth groups, support groups, sports groups, religious groups, and other groups that have a yearly income less than $500 by offering 50% off the going rate for graphic ads for these groups. If your group does not regularly charge for events, products, or services; if your group does not receive any outside funding; and if your group's annual budget is less than $500, let us know and we'll cut you a break. We believe in community groups and community involvement and we want to help your group grow!
