THE KILLER ‘MILLION POUND QUESTION’:

Q: Why do you use A6 size instead of A5/A4 size?
A: To cut down on costs. That’s what business is all about! An A5/A4 advertiser costs a lot more compared to our A6 advertiser. By having A6 size, not only do we cut our printing bill, it’s also more cost effective to have these distributed and they’re unique to what’s currently available locally. This enables us to pass the cost of advertising to our customers (we’re a lot cheaper compared to anyone else).

If I had one pound for every time someone asked me why I chosen an A6 size, I’d have an extra fiver every week!
