The ad will consist of a 140x140px JPEG, a 10-word bold headline, and 50 words of copy. You may include text links and specify a link for the image.

MÂCHÉ can track the number of readers (usually above 50% opens for each issue) and click-throughs to your site. This information will be provided at your request.

A submitted ad should be a camera-ready, high-density photo, jpeg file.


  • 2 issues (1 month) - $25
