Banner ad info

Banner ads on are available for $50 per month. Before sending payment, please read the details below, then send your ad and URL to our website coordinator at

We only accept ads from bands/labels/publishers that we would cover in the review sections of MRR magazine (i.e., DIY garage/punk/hardcore — NO MAJOR LABELS — independent publishers only). Other types of advertisers (such as websites, vendors, etc.) we take on a case-by-case basis. If you do not already advertise in the magazine, please contact us before sending us an ad or payment.

PLEASE NOTE: Running an ad on does not mean that you’ll get a good review or be featured in the magazine or website. We choose our content based on what our writers and editors want to cover, not on who buys an ad.

There is no deadline for banner ads. Your ad will run for 31 days from when it is first posted.

File format:
GIF or JPEG (we prefer GIF)
Color mode:
RGB or grayscale
468 x 60 pixels
File size: no greater than 100k
Link: please provide the URL that your ad will link to!

We prefer that banner ads contain no quickly repeating animation, and we reserve the right to edit ads that are too distracting. We will contact you if we plan to modify your ad. Also, as with our print ads, we reserve the right to refuse any ad and refund your fee.

If you cannot make your own banner ad, we can make a very simple one for you from the art and info in your MRR magazine ad or from your website.

Please email your banner ad to and include the URL you want you ad to link to. Also, please let us know how and when you will be sending payment.
