extremely low out of pocket cost, and yet, one that gets to the most
influential group in the Macintosh market.

The “Kagi Showcase” in MacTech Magazine is a new and innovative new way for
Kagi suppliers to get the word out about their product.
The showcase looks like a “marketplace” section. No editorial. 100%
advertising … like other successful classified sections. Along the header
of each of the showcase pages (except those pages that are full page ads)
there will be a header calling out the showcase.
The balance of the pages will be in a grid — supporting 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and
full page ads. 1/4, 1/2 and full page ads can look like a normal display ad
within the magazine. All ads would be 4 color.
The 1/8 page ad is the ‘entry level’ type ad. Here, your company provides
hi-res logo (300 dpi or greater), your company or product name (the bold
text) and a short paragraph (including how to contact you). We do all the
layout, and that’s included in the price.
The minimum number of ads that you can run ix 3x — and you can lock in the
pricing all the way up to a 12x (this is what most people do with prices so
low). Only new advertisers are eligible, and the products/services
advertised must be made with or work with Kagi to be in the showcase.
Here’s the pricing.
3x 6x 12x
Full Page $1495 $1295 $995
Half Page $895 $775 $595
Quarter Page $495 $395 $295
