Advertising in The Portolan

The Portolan, journal of the Washington Map Society, provides an opportunity for dealer members of the Society to advertise and reach hundreds of map aficionados and institutions throughout the USA and worldwide. Map dealers are encouraged to consider placing ads in The Portolan as their business plans and budgets are developed.

The Portolan is provided to each member and institutional subscriber three times a year.

Total advertising content in The Portolan is limited to roughly 12% of the total pages in the journal, as specified by the WMS Board of Directors. That limit has not yet been reached which means additional ads can be accepted, on a first-come, first-served basis. Again, the opportunity to advertise in the journal is being offered only to dealers who are members of the Washington Map Society.
