As members of the Nebraska Press Association, you can place advertising through the Seward County Independent that reaches over 150 papers across the state.

In the newspaper industry we have a habit of using a lot of terminology specific to what we do.  You may be asking, "what does 2x2 and 2x4 mean?"

  • 2x2 = 2 columns wide X 2" tall (about the size of a business card)
  • 2x4 = 2 columns wide X 4" tall
