Planning a wedding?
Announce it to friends and loved ones in The Decatur Daily! We would
love to publish your engagement and wedding announcements. Prices vary
based on the length of the announcement. To be sure that your announcement
is just right, please follow these guidelines:
Use the proper forms. Submit your information on the following Decatur
Daily wedding and engagement forms.
Keep the deadlines in mind. For Sunday publication, please submit your
form and photograph by the preceding Monday.
Pick the perfect photo. Photos should be vertical, head-and-shoulders shots. A color photo is best. E-mail a high-resolution jpg
image (at least 300 dpi) to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly labeled and we’ll match your photo to your submitted form.
You can also bring your photo (5x7 or larger) to The Daily office.
Please be sure your photo is of good quality; we’re unable to print poor-quality images, computer-generated prints or photographic
proofs. You can reclaim your photo up to six months after it is published; we cannot keep them longer. Unfortunately
we cannot be responsible for lost or damaged photos.
Get permission. We are not able to accept Olan Mills photos without written studio permission. You must make a payment of
$24.95 copyright fee directly to Olan Mills at www.olanmills.com. The fee is payable only by credit card.
Make sure to proofread! We cannot republish announcements that contain incorrect information you supplied.
