The Burwood Bulletin has a wide variety of advertisers from local small businesses, to shopping centres. Many of our advertisers have been with us for over 35 years.

We publish four times during the year in March, June, September and December with a distribution of 6000 per issue. Magazines are delivered to specific outlets by our volunteer distributors – not via letterbox drops.

The magazine is printed on high-quality 115gsm paper, to better present your advertisement to our readership.

There are various advertising options available, from full-page to quarter-column, to listings in our two Business Directories. Everything required to place your advertisement with the Burwood Bulletin is in our Advertisers’ Kit; however, for any queries please phone 0419 591 161 or email

  • Colour Mode: CMYK – not RGB.
  • File formats: PDF (preferred) TIFF or Adobe Illustrator.
  • Fonts: Fonts should be embedded (PDF) or created as outlines (Illustrator).
  • Submission Format: Finished advertisement should be supplied as a high resolution PDF file (press).
  • Original: Retain copy of original file before converting to PDF for any changes later required.
  • Artwork must be print ready. For any queries, email
