To help you compile your wedding, engagement, anniversary or baby's birth information for publication in the TIMES NEWS, forms are available in our main office at 594 Blakeslee Blvd. Drive West, Lehighton (Route 443), as well as in our satellite offices in Tamaqua, Lansford and Palmerton.
Wedding pictures and stories will be published free of charge up to six months after the wedding. After the six-month deadline, there is a $50 charge to have your wedding appear in the TIMES NEWS.
Photographs will be published in black and white, free of charge; however, if you want your picture to appear in color, there is a $35 fee. Color birth announcements are $15. Scanned pictures or those that have been printed on a home computer cannot be used. Those wishing to submit a digital photo via e-mail should take the picture with the camera set at the highest resolution possible.
To check the resolution size on your camera, click "Menu" then "Image Size." It should be set to the "L" setting or largest width-to-height ratio setting, ie. 2000 x 3000. Send digital photos to email@example.com. The photo should not be resized for transmission.
The suitability of submitted photographs will be determined by our technical staff. Those that do not meet the aforementioned guidelines will be rejected.
If you have a question about submitting an announcement or to request a form, call our Lifestyle Department at 1-800-443-0377, ext. 3140.
