WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH ONE INCH? (Nov, 1933)

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH ONE INCH?

This is written in one inch — the smallest advertisement accepted in this magazine. Small advertisements of one or two inches produce results of many times their cost for hundreds of companies or individuals who have novelties, scientific or mechanical equipment, tools, games, puzzles, etc., to sell, and for firms looking for agents. Inch advertisements like this cost $31.50. They pay well because they are seen and read by 400,000 wide-awake men every month. Interested parties are invited to address the Advertising Department, Popular Science Monthly, 381 Fourth Ave., New York. N. Y.

    Jokes or joke-like statements aside, it’s a pretty good filler ad.

    But I seem to recall PS ads going as small as 1/2″ or possibly 1/4″ – odd little things that would say “Sales Reps needed – great territories avail. Info $1. PO Box 1234, Scranton PA. No stamps” in 4-5 point type.
