Advertising with Dorsett Publications
Starting this year, Dorsett Publications is publishing an annual Suppliers Guide that provides listings and advertisements for companies that produce or carry the supplies, materials, and tools used by scale modelers. The Suppliers Guide will be available, free of charge, to anyone visiting the Dorsett Publications website and will be included on all of the Scale Cabinetmaker cd-roms.
A listing/panel advertisement in The Scale Cabinetmaker Suppliers Guide will give you direct access to scale modelers, to people who are going to their workbenches and making stuff. Our customers buy wood, brass, hardware, hand tools and power tools, jigs and fixtures, and a whole host of other high quality products.
For this first year, we are accepting new advertisements through December 31st. In subsequent years, new ad materials and orders should be submitted to Dorsett Publications no later than November 1st in order to be included in the next year's Suppliers Guide. We will send an advertising renewal reminder out each September for the next year's Guide.
Rates and Sizes:
With a few exceptions, the miniature industry is populated by small businesses. We recognize that advertising can be an expensive proposition. For that reason, we are keeping the rates for the Suppliers Guide as low as we possibly can.

Artwork should be submitted to Dorsett Publications in electronic format, either as a pdf or as a jpg or png and should be sent to Dorsett Publications. Given the nature of digital documents, the advertisement can be black and white or color, can include photographs, and it can include links to specific online documents, including videos if you so choose.
We accept advertisements from suppliers and manufacturers, as well as retailers. Advertisements are sorted by type of supplier (wood, brick, tools, windows, etc.). If you company ships internationally, please note that in your advertisement. If you have a company website, be sure to include a link in your panel ad. Please use a standard font for the text in the ad. We will be adding your website to our links page as well, but pdf publications allow for direct connection from the Suppliers Guide to your website. Individual advertisers may purchase up to 4 advertisements, or the equivalent of 4 pages of space. For advertisers who choose not to design their own ads, we charge an additional $50 per page set-up fee.
In subsequent years, the advertising copy and payment must be submitted by November 1st for inclusion in the next year's Suppliers Guide. This first year, however, we are accepting advertisements through December 31st. A smaller Suppliers Guide will be published on the cd-roms being sold and delivered before Christmas, so if you want to be included in the pre-Christmas Guide, please submit your advertising copy and payment prior to December 1st.
Each guide, published in a pdf format, will be included on The Scale Cabinetmaker cd-roms and will be available for download from the Dorsett Publications website. In addition, information about the annual Supplier Guide will be mailed out with all Dorsett Publications orders and the individual companies will be included on the Suppliers Links Page.
Advertisements must be paid for in advance or via our Quickbooks account (which allows us to send you an electronic statement and pay the bill online). Invoices can also be paid for either by mail, email, or phone. Unlike in the past, Dorsett Publications now accept credit card payments, as well as the more traditional check approach.
Orders may be submitted by phone (540.382.6431) or by email (email@example.com) and advertising copy should be sent, as an attached file, by email or sent on either a flash drive or a cd-rom by mail to: Dorsett Publications, 630 Depot Street NE, Christiansburg, VA 24073.
