Display Banners

Traditional display banner advertising is a successful way to brand your company and product and provides vendors instant-gratification results.

We limit the number of banner ad locations on the Linux Journal web site to ensure optimal results for advertisers.

Banner ad sizes available include:

Type of ad Dimensions Max file size File formats
Leaderboard 728 x 90 pixels 30k PNG, JPG, GIF or Flash
Large Rectangle 336 x 280 pixels 30k PNG, JPG, GIF or Flash
Banner Ad Animation
Leaderboard 3 loops max, 30 second max for initial movie, 12 - 15 fps max
Large Rectangle 3 loops max, 30 second max for initial movie, 12 - 15 fps max
Special notes: User interaction with an ad must always be user-initiated: audio and video can be activated only by a user click (not mouse-over), and once activated, an "off" option must be provided.
File format Submission Deadline
PNG, JPG or GIF 3 business days prior to campaign launch
Rich Media 5 business days prior to campaign launch (in addition a PNG, JPG or GIF must be provided to be served as default for non-Flash users)
Special Notes: If the submitted creative does not conform to specifications, it will not go on-line and may result in a delayed launch date. Send creative here.

When submitting creatives, please note: Although advertisers are free to design their ads to achieve best site visibility, LinuxJournal.com reserves the right to refuse any advertising that is deemed unacceptable: two examples would be pop-ups or pop-unders. In addition, advertising served by third-party agencies using cookie technology is not encouraged at LinuxJournal.com for privacy policy reasons and because of accepted practices in the Linux community. For questions, please contact your advertising representative.
