Images may be attached and included with all of the above.

  • English, French or both
  • National distribution

     3. You provide the content. We do the rest.

  • Once you have created your content and selected your audience, send us the materials and we'll do the rest.
  • We distribute your content as soon as possible, on the hour, usually the same day, with a two-business day response guarantee.
