For statewide advertisers who wish to place an economical display
ad, Oregon Newspaper Advertising Company (ONAC) offers the Oregon
2x2 Network program. With a single order, you can place
a small display ad in most of Oregon's daily and nondaily newspapers.
A 2x2 Network ad is small display ad that is equivalent
to four column inches in either vertical or horizontal format:
Width = 3.22" and 3.875" Height = 2 inches
Width = 1.528" and 1.875" Height = 4 inches
Please provide both widths indicated to ensure a good fit in all participating papers.
2x2 Network ads allow you complete control over
the design of your ad. You can use any size and style of type plus
logos and other graphics. Your local newspaper can help you with
artwork and typesetting.
2x2 Network ads are sold by participating newspapers
as well as by the ONAC staff in Portland. Each Wednesday, participating
newspapers receive advertising in camera-ready or digital format.
Your ad will appear once each week in each participating newspaper.
Nondaily newspapers will run the ad on their regular publication
day (usually Wednesday or Thursday), and daily newspapers will use
the ad where it is best suited for their individual markets, usually
Thursday or Friday.
We prefer that 2x2 Network ads be submitted to
ONAC digitally (in PDF
format; click here for details), but we will also accept camera-ready
prints. All ads must adhere to ONAC
content guidelines. ONAC reserves the right to reject ads that
are not in compliance with state and federal regulations or that
are in poor taste, offensive, false, misleading, deceptive, or otherwise
unacceptable. Participating newspapers have agreed to run any ad
that is accepted by ONAC unless it violates a specific newspaper
The cost of a 2x2 Network ad is $650, payable
in advance with a cashier's check, money order, or Visa or Mastercard.
