  • This magazine will be published in August 2017 and will be distributed through spring of 2018. Make sure your coupons’ expiration dates are no earlier than February 1, 2018.
The Specs

The Seven Days design team will layout your coupons using a uniform template. Provide the following for each coupon.

  1. Offer headline: 2 lines, 25 total characters.
  2. Up to 3 bullet points about the deal and/or your business. Each point should not exceed 25 characters.
  3. Expiration date.
  4. Address and phone number
  5. Your logo (.ai, .eps or .pdf format)
