Susan E. Fosdick, Annual Convention Chairman
Dear Club Presidents, Members, and Friends of NJSFWC,
We hope that ALL Clubs will submit an ad for the NJSFWC Convention Book. You will be making your club visible
and you will be supporting NJSFWC. This year we’re creating a new category of ads for members who own a
business. You can reach over 500 Federation sisters by placing an ad in our Convention book. We also continue to
seek outside organizations to place ads in our book. The price for ads is different for each category.
Category 1 – Clubs and individual members ($50 - full page; $40 – half page; $25 – quarter page)
Category 2 – Members who own businesses ($75/$50/$40) Ad must include name of member’s home Club.
Category 3 – Outside organizations/businesses ($100/$80/$50) We welcome support from the community at large.
Follow these instructions to create a spectacular convention ad!
Design your ad on a computer using Microsoft Word. If you don’t have Microsoft Word, find someone
who does. The person who designs your ad should have outstanding computer skills. Please – no PDF
Ads look best when they have fewer words and graphics. Keep it simple! This is especially true for
quarter and half page ads.
Borders and graphics do NOT always transmit exactly as the designer intended. That’s why it’s important
to send a paper version of your ad. The Book Chairman will duplicate the original ad as closely as
Use standard fonts such as Calibri, Times New Roman, Lucida Calligraphy, Georgia, and
Verdana. Unusual fonts may not transfer from one computer to another.
Your ad must be submitted 2 ways – a digital version (via your computer) and a paper copy. Please use a
full sheet of paper but print the ad within the dimensions that you desire.
If you send ONLY a paper copy of your ad, we will have to scan it into the computer and the quality will
degrade from your original. We send ONLY computer generated material to our printing company.
Be sure to proof read your ad.
The program book will be 5 ½ by 8 ½ inches with a spiral bound cover. In order to be sure that your ad is
the correct size, please use the dimensions on the reverse side of this form.
Design and submit your ad in black and white so that you can see how it will appear in the book.
Checks should be payable to NJSFWC Convention Account.
o Mail 3 things - (1) check, (2) club information, and (3) paper copy of ad to:
10 Furman Drive
Wayne, NJ 07470
o Send the computer version to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ads will be placed in the book in the order in which they are received. No handwritten ads will be accepted.
Please note - Ads for the 2021 Convention Book are due by February 1
Contact Karen by email or at 973-839-0826, if you have questions. Do this as soon as possible. She will help with
