These ads were created by ONPA for use by our members to promote public notice in newspapers. We encourage newspapers to download and print these ads in support of this cause. Please check back occasionally, as this collection will expand over time.
THE NEWEST GROUP OF ADS includes web banners and print ads promoting the free SmartSearch service at publicnoticeoregon.com, whose design has recently been updated. The service allows your readers to have your paper's public notices sent to them by email. The print ads also stress the importance of keeping public notices in the newspaper.
The following four ads were developed with information from the public notice research mentioned in "Readership/advertising/public notice research" below. The ads alert the public to the importance of keeping public notices in the newspaper. Four designs are currently available, in various sizes and in color and black and white.

The resulting report, titled "Advertising & Media Use in Oregon", can be downloaded here:
