AHHS Stud Book Volume 33 (2007-2012)
The next stud book will be ready for purchase early in 2013. Two versions of the stud book will be available, black & white and color. The stud book will be larger than previous versions, this edition will be printed in the 8.5 x 11 inch format.
As in years past, the Stud Book will contain much more than just a record of the hackneys born. It will also include transfers, futurity results, limited breeders stakes results, annual awards, name changes, a membership list, and much more. The stud book is really similar to a year book in this regard.
In the past, advertising in the stud book was necessary to offset printing cost. Printing costs were high because publishers required a minimum order of a few hundred books before they could go to print. In today’s digital world, most books expecting limited sales are published “on demand”, which means a book isn’t printed and bound until someone places an order for it. Although stud book advertising dollars aren’t needed as in previous editions, advertisements are definitely welcome. Advertisers will receive one free stud book.
The advertising details:
- $150 - One Page Vertical
- $250 - Two page Picture/Pedigree Spread
- Text and photos for all ads will be provided by the purchaser of the advertisement.
- All photos provided should have a resolution of 300 dpi at 100% of production size.
- All advertisements and associated fees must be in the AHHS by October 1st, 2012.
