Want Ad Digest...classifieds since 1962...we produce results fast!

We pride ourselves on our ability to give you an organized ad in an effective layout. Placing an ad is a quick process that flows in a step by step format. After you have entered your information a sample of what your ad will look like will be displayed. Your ad will appear online within 24 hours of placing it. We have customer service representatives working throughout the business day proofing all ads before going online and in print in order to provide you with the most effective ad. If you have any questions or problems, please contact our customer service as they will be happy to assist you.

When you place a Photo Commission Ad or a Pre-paid Photo Ad, you will be prompted to upload your photo in a JPG format. If your photo will not upload, the file size is too large. Either reduce the file size, E-Mail us the photo directly, or contact our office for further instruction. If you need to edit your photos, try using Picasa, a free program from Google. Photo images will be cropped to the appropriate size for the website and printed publication. Please make sure your photo is clear in detail; a good photo will give the buyer a good look at your item. Want Ad Digest reserves the right to reject inappropriate photos.


The publication is printed on a weekly basis and is distributed on Thursday and no later than Friday depending on the location of your local store.

The Want Ad Digest is available in Stewarts, Price Chopper, Quickway, Cumberland Farms, Nice N Easy, Fastrac, Red Barrel, Xtra Mart, Hess Mart, Circle K, and many other convenient stores and small newsstands. If you can not find a copy of Want Ad Digest, gives us a call and we will let you know which stores around you carry it. If stores in your area do not carry us, and you would like to see it in a store near you, then we will work to make that happen.
