The Technical Stuff ...

All Kootenai Valley Times ads are measured in pixels per inch.

Our front page (main index or home page) has a three-column design (as does this one) with columns (l-r) News: 700 pixels wide; Social: 300 pixels, and Sidebar: 200 pixels wide.

Our index pages; News, Social, Obituary, Business, Sports, Letters, Entertainment, and our columnist pages, "Out of Kilter" and "Those Were the Days," are in two-column format, the Main being 900 pixels wide and the Sidebar 300 pixels wide.

Our events page offers space for ads 300 pixels wide, solely for upcoming events.

On all our pages, display ads can vary in height, but width is fixed by column size.

In each column on the main page and each index page except events, the top spot can be locked in as an "anchor" for a monthly advertiser for an additional 15% of the ad price.

All other ads rotate on a weekly basis, with the ad at the bottom of the column moving to the top (unless that spot is anchored), and all others shifting down one spot.

If you have a pre-made ad you would like to use, email it to and I will give you options and pricing.

If you would like us to design your ad, send any artwork, such as logos, photos and graphics, along with ideas you have on what the ad should say, color schemes, etc., via mail or email.

We’ll put together options with pricing for you to consider and work with you to fine tune everything.

When you are satisfied, we’ll publish your ad and send you an invoice.
Yard, barn and rummage sales are always listed free in the events calendar!
Just email the times, dates and location, along with an idea of what's  being offered, to!
