To All Potential Advertisers:� When you are considering placing an ad in either our newsletter or on our website, please remember even if you are not in close proximity to Fresno/Clovis, many of our members travel all over California and being the bead fanatics we all are, we all try to visit all bead stores in whatever areas we travel to.� After all, we are The Central California Bead Society, and our area of members stretches from just below Sacramento to Bakersfield.
Placing an ad with us will give your business an advantage over other bead stores who have elected not to do so.� Our members and others who visit our site will likely visit the stores they see here or in our newsletters since they will be prominently displayed in/on both venues.� Should you wish to track how many customers you glean from placing an ad with us, you should consider offering a discount to customers who print out your ad from our site, show their CCBS Membership ID Card or cut out a coupon from our newsletter.�
If you wish to become a member but are still on the fence about advertising at this time you may certainly do so.� Our membership is open to everyone who is a bead fanatic, bead or bead related business owner or anyone curious about beading in general.
To Advertise in either our newsletter or on our website you will need to be a member of The Central California Bead Society (CCBS).� Just $25 annually renewable in January.�
If you are not already a member, there is a membership application you can print and fill out (click here for application) and mail back to us along with your check for $25 (plus any advertising fees you may elect to purchase) to:

You can send your digital file directly to: email@example.com .� The digital image must be a minimum of 300 dpi.� If you are going to submit a scanned image of your business card, then we can�t be responsible for the clarity of the image in final print, it would be best to send the image file your commercial printer used to create the card.� This would likely already be in .tif or .eps format.� Sometimes the paper used in a business card is textured or doesn�t scan as well as we would like.� This same holds true for any other scan ready image.� The better the image to start out with, the better it will look in print.
Full Website advertising is $35.00 per year (business card size ad) and includes a button link on the advertising page within your ad straight to your website if you have one.
Be sure to include your address, phone number, web address (if you have one) and email address in your Ad Info.
