The Granby Drummer offers print and online advertising options to local businesses who would like to advertise to the residents of Granby, CT.

The print advertising supports the print and distribution of this local community newspaper and is a vital to the survival of the paper. Because of this, online advertising options can only be added to an existing print ad to help complement it and broaden it’s reach.

Print ads and online ads both have different functions and reach different Drummer audiences. You can have a print ad without an online ad but you cannot have an online ad without an existing print ad. For prices see below. Follow the live links to pre-set templates to help you build and manage your ad in Google Documents.

Please be sure to submit your ad on time, you can also check our deadlines page for a reminder.  Ads can now be submitted online. If you have any questions please see our submissions page.
