Q&A: Public notice header


From Community Media Group:

Q: When determining what the newspaper should charge for a public notice advertisement, do you count the two lines of the header?

A: Yes, the header counts. Usually the header is composed of two lines that are a little larger point size than the body type of the public notice advertisement.

Because it is a different point size, the line rate for those two lines will be different.

You should note that the state Board of Accounts claim form for payment of public notices breaks out the header, acknowledging that it will have a different line rate.
