Sponsorship Features

Sponsors receive the following:

  • A graphical banner ad at the top of every TidBITS issue. If you submit multiple ads, our system will pick one randomly for each usage.

  • A short welcoming article in the first sponsored issue (for long-term sponsorships of 12 weeks or more).

We do not accept guest posts or sponsored posts, nor do we do link insertions, so please do not contact us about them.

Ad Specs

Our format and size recommendations are as follows, in order of preference:

  • JPEG or PNG format at 1456×180 and 640×200 (basically double size so they look good on Retina screens)
  • SVG format in the proportions of 728×90 and 320×100
  • JPEG or PNG format at 728×90 and 320×100 (should work fine, but won’t be as crisp on Retina screens)
  • HTML5 ads are possible if you want interactivity, but they should be responsive so they scale down properly to iPhone screens. Contact us before creating an HTML5 ad so we can be sure we can support it.
The reason for the 320×100 mobile large banner size is that 728×90 leaderboard ads scale poorly to iPhone screens in portrait orientation. Our system uses media queries to swap between the two sizes on the fly to ensure the best possible presentation.
