Birth Announcement

Birth announcements charge: No Photo - Free, B&W Photo - $12.00, Color Photo - $24.00.

The deadline for each week's paper is noon on the Friday before the publication date (ex. paper publishes on Wednesday, Sept. 23, deadline is noon on Friday, Sept. 18)

Announcements in the paper look like mini articles, have no border around them, and no signature. They are not used to get the word out about open houses or card showers. Any reader submission to the paper that the reader would like to "sign" ("Happy anniversary, grandma and grandpa!  Love, your family") is also an advertisment and not an announcement.  If you would like to place an ad rather than an announcement, please call the office at 319-346-1461.

Once this form is completed, you will be directed to our checkout for payment. If you are submitting a no photo free announcement, you will be taken through the checkout process but not charged. Please remember to attach your photo to the bottom of this page.

Thank you!
