Preparing copy lor n newspaper

lUiuira 01 uic nuvcrusiug man WHO
j is connected with a retail establish
jment. In the large cities where a
j half page or a larger space is used
1 daily in each of four or five papers,
I the preparation of this large amount
of copy keeps n force of three or
four men busy during
Except for the amount of copy
required, the work is exactly the
I same in the smaller advertising de
partment where one man constitutes
t,,e entire force. As a Tllle, wllCU
comes to preparing a
nnn mticf nrfinnnrl nlnflcr llidcn littnc
and must proceed along these lines
While it rests entirely with him to
say what shall appear in the space
for which he is paying and in just
what style it shall appear, he must
remember that he cannot expect
any newspaper to set up his ad two
or three times untirhe finds a style
he likes best. In fixing its adver
tising rates the average newspaper
includes a reasonable amount for
the expense for setting the type to
appear in the space sold. This es
timate is not sufficient to warrant
wholesale changes or the resetting
of any considerable portion of the
matter, and such practice on the
part of the ad man will soon bring
him into dis-favor with the news
If the ad writer is familiar with
type faces and sizes and is capable
of "sizing matter" he will be justi
fied in marking his copy exactly as
he wants it. He must be prepared,
however, to be satisfied, at least
outwardly, with the result. If the
printer "follows copy" and is then
required to pull the ad to pieces,
and practically reset it the writer
will soon get the reputation of not
knowing what he wants and of be
ing ignorant of type. Such a rep
utation is certain to "bob up" in
the most unexpected places and
should be carefully guarded against.
If copy is marked the writer
must remembc r that he is respon
sible for the result. If the copy
fills twice as much space as was in
tended the printer cannot be held
responsible. It is not the easiest
matter in the world to gauge copy
accurately, but practice makes per
fect and after a given style is
adopted it soon becomes a compar
atively simple task to regulate the
copy to fit almost any given space.
Some writers adopt the fashion of
using the same style in their ads
day after day for a considerable
period. This method makes life
easier for ad man and for printer;
it also establishes a direct connec
tion between that particular style
and the house which uses it.
There are many advantages about
this method, but it is necessary to
guard against allowing it to get
into a rut and losing force.
In cases where the ad man does
not mark his copy he should la
out a diagram of the same size as
the space the ad is to occupy and
should mark on this the divisions
he wishes to appear. Each of
these divisions should contain a
number and a corresponding num
ber should appear on the copy
which is to occupy that particular
