"The BUSTshop" is a program we designed specifically for smaller companies with limited ad budgets, to help get them the best exposure for their advertising dollar. For $425, you get a full-color ad in BUST magazine, read by over 500,000 hip, smart women ages 18-34. You ALSO get a 120x60 pixel ad on BUST.com—our award-winning website with over 250,000 unique visitors a month!—for the full two months that the magazine is on the newsstands.

Advertisers in the BUSTshop have been getting incredible results. Here are some of the most recent testimonials from a few of our satisfied customers:

"I've just had my most amazing Christmas sales season in four years of selling t-shirts. My email inbox is telling me that it's NOT a coincidence that this rush is at the same time that I'm running a color BUSTshop ad." Richard, Dieselsweeties.com

"[The BUSTshop] is a great opportunity to get some quality advertising out to a huge (and hip) audience at the best advertising price out there! You're every small business woman's dream!" Liz, BolsaBonita.com

“As a small growing company with no advertising budget to speak of, we really wrestled with the idea of purchasing an ad with BUST. We eventually decided to take the risk on a cool, hip magazine with a mission similar to ours. We were ecstatic when the ad lead to new accounts, online customers and subscribers.” Dierdre O'Boyle, She-Bible.com

"I thought I’d drop a quick note to let you know that every Christmas gift I purchased this year was from a vendor who advertised in your magazine.
BUST is the only magazine with advertisements that are just as cool as the articles. New businesses don’t usually have extra cash lying around, so the people who bought space in BUST should know that their money was well spent. I always turn to your magazine for great ideas and I will continue to support the unique artists who advertise with you. Keep up the good work!" Mary Sullivan, Camp Lejeune, NC

The ad should be 2.25" wide by 3" tall
The ad should be 300 dpi and saved as a tiff or eps file, (using Photoshop, Illustrator, or other image-editing program that is capable of saving in this format and this resolution. Sorry, but at this time, we do not accept InDesign files unless they have been exported as an .eps.) We prefer that ads not be sent as jpegs unless they have been saved at "highest quality." Please send CMYK files.

*For ads being created in Illustrator: Please remember to convert fonts to "outlines" before mailing us the ad.
Please save ads as your company's name, i.e., calvinklein.tif. Please do not save your file as bust.tif, or anything with "bust" in the file name, as it runs the risk of overwriting other files on our end.

BUST is not responsible for the outcome of your artwork unless it is accompanied by a printed proof.
We cannot guarantee type, image, color, or placement without this. Please remember to clearly mark your proof with your company's name.
