Become a Sponsor

With more than 30% of Richardson residents speaking a language other than English at home and 10,000+ who don’t speak English well, sponsorship support of the Buns & Roses Romance Tea for Literacy provides funding for RALC’s free English as a Second Language instruction for adults in our community.​​​​​​

Make a difference in the lives of adults in our community who want to learn English . . . be a sponsor.

To become a sponsor, contact Katie Patterson at  director@ralc.org

​​Due to our printing deadline, sponsor levels/contributions that include logo/name in the program must be confirmed and received by October 1.

AD SPECIFICATIONS AND DEADLINE

We will be happy to design your ad for you. Ad must be purchased and materials submitted to us by September 1.​

If you prefer to design your own ad:

Please purchase your ad by September 1 and submit your camera-ready ad as a 300 dpi jpg by October 1.

It works best to design your ad using CYMK color because the printing press automatically converts RGB color to CYMK and some RGB hues will be slightly altered.

Once your art is flattened and saved as a jpg, we recommend you lighten the artwork by at least 10%. This may look faded on your computer screen but it will print considerably darker. For this reason we have found that lighter background colors look the best in the Buns & Roses program. 

A naturally occurring white border appears around all ads and text in the Buns & Roses program.


SPECIFICATIONS FOR PROGRAM ADS (All ads in color)

Half-page ad:  4.75 (4¾) wide by 3.75 (3¾) high
 
Full page, back cover, or inside ad:  4.75 (4¾) wide by 7.75 (7¾) high

Thank you for supporting literacy by participating in the Buns & Roses Tea. If you have any questions regarding ad layout or preparation, please contact: Lorraine Heath at  lorraine-heath@sbcglobal.net .
