How to place a NVCAN ad …

  • Call the Nevada Press Association or the nearest participating NVCAN newspaper for information. The Nevada Press Association telephone number is: (775) 885-0866, or
  • Use the form below to email it to us, or
  • Fax the ad (775-885-8233), or
  • Email us at nevadapress2@att.net

What are the methods of payment?
Credit card, cashier’s check or money order for private parties placing ads.

How are the words counted?
Telephone number, including area code, is one word.  Addresses, including house number, street, P.O. Box, count as two words.  City name, state and zip code are separate words.  Each word counts as a word regardless of symbols, hyphens or abbreviations.  Web addresses count as three words.

Are there any restrictions on what type of ads can be published?
Yes.  Ads that do not comply with state and federal regulations are not accepted.  We also do not accept ads that claim to repair credit, ads that contain a 1-900 telephone number, or adoption ads.  NvCAN and individual newspapers in the network reserve the right to reject an ad for any reason.  Also, individual newspapers reserve the right to properly classify or edit ads.

What is the deadline?
Every Wednesday at noon for payment and ad copy, for publication the following week, beginning Sunday.

What heading or classification will the newspaper run my ad under?
Most of the newspapers will mix statewide ads with their local ads under appropriate headings or headings they feel are the most suitable.

Can you print my ad in bold face?
We do not provide for special effects like bold face or capital letter, etc.  Your ad will look like any other classified “line” ad in participating newspapers.

Will I get a discount if I run my ad more times?
Yes.  A 15 percent discount is given for ads that run for 10 consecutive weeks or more.

How many responses will I get if I run this ad?
We cannot guarantee responses.  If you have a well-written and tested ad and you are selling a good product or service, you should be pleased with the responses you receive.

Can I run my ad in selected newspapers or selected regions?
Yes! NVCANs has FIVE great regions to chose from — North, South, Community and Metro. Or you may chose to place your ad in all 24 network newspapers.

Is it cost-effective to run my ad through NvCAN?
Yes.  It would cost you much more to run your ad by contacting the newspapers individually, and that does not even take into consideration the cost of postage, checks or time.

What about tearsheets or proof of publication?
No proof of publication or tearsheets are provided.  NvCAN periodically monitors the newspapers in the network to ensure that ads are being published.

NVCAN Standards of Acceptance
The variety of subjects in a newspaper’s classified ad section is attractive to readers.  These standards are designed to improve your ad’s credibility and appeal.  The Nevada Press Association or any NvCAN member newspaper will gladly work with you to develop a proper and effective ad.
The Nevada Press Association reserves the right to reject any ad for any reason; individual newspapers reserve the right to properly classify, edit or reject any advertising in compliance with local regulations and policies.  The newspapers also reserve the right to typeset and produce the ads into their individual formats.
NvCAN may reject advertising if it appears to be false, misleading, fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, illegal or in poor taste, in objectionable format or for
any other cause.
Advertising will be rejected if it is known or determined to discriminate based on age, race, color, national origin, religion, sec or martial status, and where other legal restrictions prevail.
Advertisers must be able to provide the name, street, city, state, zip code and phone number of the individual or organization submitting the ad.  We need to know where the ad originates in case of consumer complaints.
Advertisers may be subject to credit or Better Business Bureau reference checks.  NvCAN does not guarantee responses to any advertising.
