Advertise in THE PULPSTER

Apr 15, 2020 by

THE PULPSTER #29One of the many highlights of PulpFest is the convention’s program book, THE PULPSTER. For almost thirty years, a complimentary copy of this pulp-packed publication has been given annually to all PulpFest members.

Although THE PULPSTER reflects the themes of each year’s PulpFest, it’s pretty much open to all things pulp. So you’ll find articles on magazines, authors and artists, collecting, how contemporary creators are still inspired by the pulps, and much more. THE PULPSTER reaches a serious core of pop culture collectors and enthusiasts. Each issue of the convention’s program book has a circulation of 450 – 500 copies.

Be a part of PulpFest 2020 by placing an advertisement in this year’s issue of THE PULPSTER. The magazine’s advertising rates are very reasonable: color back cover – $250; inside front color cover – $150; inside back color cover – $125; inside color full page – $100; inside black-and-white full page – $80; color half-page – $80; black-and-white half-page – $50; black-and-white quarter page – $30.

Please write to PulpFest marketing director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com to reserve your space in THE PULPSTER. You have until June 15 to buy an ad. All spaces are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, with payment expected upon placing your order. Please be aware that our cover spaces sell almost immediately.

Another way to advertise at PulpFest is to donate material to be provided free to our members or to serve as door prizes. Over the years Chaosium, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION, Radio Archives, Stark House Press, and other organizations have donated a variety of materials that have been given away free of charge to PulpFest attendees. Your donation will be acknowledged on our website and at the convention. To make a donation, please contact Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com.

Sponsorships are also available. You can sponsor the convention’s badges, our welcome banner, the PulpFest hospitality suite and more. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities at PulpFest, please contact the convention’s marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com.

(The cover art for this mock-up of THE PULPSTER #29 was originally painted by Margaret Brundage for the October 1933 WEIRD TALES.

A few copies of THE PULPSTER #27 and 28 are still available for purchase through Mike Chomko, Books, one of the leading purveyors of pulp-related publications in the field. The cost of each issue is $13 or $24 for both, postage paid, in the United States. Buyers from outside the United States should inquire about shipping charges, prior to placing an order.

Be a PulpFest Sponsor!

 

Join the PulpFest team! For a number of years, a range of organizations have made significant contributions to the convention through their sponsorships. Why not add your organization to the list?

One of our most popular sponsorship categories is our website sponsorship. For a contribution of $150, your link will appear in the bar on the right side of the PulpFest homepage. You’ll be alongside Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., For the Love of All Things EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS, and our other site sponsors. Six-month sponsorships are also available for $80.

This year, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. will be sponsoring the convention’s welcome banner. The banner will be displayed near the PulpFest 2020 registration desk for all of our members to admire. We’d like to thank Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. for their generous contribution to PulpFest 2020.

If you or your organization would like to sponsor the PulpFest 2021 banner, we’d be happy to talk with you.

Although our 2020 welcome banner has already been sponsored, there are other ways for you to help. If you donate $120, you can sponsor the PulpFest 2020 membership badges. Your name or logo will appear on each member’s badge, reminding them of your generosity. As our membership badges also feature a copy of the convention’s program schedule, our members regularly refer to them.

We’re looking for several sponsors who can contribute $100 or more to help defray the authorization expenses for this year’s film program. Prior to each film showing, your name and logo will be displayed on our screen, acknowledging your contribution to our programming.

For a contribution of $50 or more, you can be a hospitality suite sponsor. Last year, ten individuals and organizations contributed a substantial sum of money to help PulpFest stock its con suite with snacks and beverages. The convention was even able to buy a large quantity of pizzas for everyone’s enjoyment.

As a hospitality suite sponsor, your name or logo will be listed on a poster that will be displayed in the PulpFest con suite at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry.

All of our various sponsors, large and small, will be thanked through several posts that will run on our homepage and social media sites.

Other opportunities to help PulpFest financially include advertising in the convention’s program book, THE PULPSTER, or donating material to be given free to PulpFest members or to serve as door prizes.

To learn more about sponsorship opportunities with PulpFest, please contact the convention’s marketing director, Mike Chomko, at mike@pulpfest.com.

(Join the PulpFest team! If you or your organization is interested in discussing a PulpFest sponsorship, please contact Mike Chomko, the convention’s marketing director. We’d be honored to have your name or logo appear on something like our PulpFest 2019 welcome banner, sponsored by Meteor House. Designed by PulpFest advertising director William Lampkin and featuring art by Walter Baumhofer, it also featured the Meteor House name and logo.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc is sponsoring our PulpFest 2020 welcome banner. Please contact Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com if you’d like to join them as a PulpFest 2020 sponsor.)

To commemorate PulpFest‘s salute to the ninetieth anniversary of AMAZING STORIES, Bill is putting together a round-robin article featuring Barry Malzberg, Elinor Mavor, Ted White, and Joseph Wrzos, editors emeritus of the first continuing science fiction magazine.
