As an honest media outlet, it’s essential that we keep our eyes true to the real import culture, and it’s our responsibility to pass what we see, on to our readers.  The fact is – in this time, we are seeing a lot of entrepreneurship at the roots levels of this scene.  We’re seeing young, start-up new companies born out of this culture… with unique, quality new products & visions.  And as a response, S3 is now offering super-affordable 1/8th page print ads and web banner ads – geared specifically for these passionate new companies.  This is an opportunity for you to be able to step up & take things to the next level, and get your brand noticed in an internationally distributed magazine… all with very little investment.
