Please type your announcement using the information below as your guide. In order to reduce the possibility of errors, handwritten announcements are no longer accepted.

ANNOUNCEMENT FORMAT: Use Times New Roman set at size 10 or 12. Do Not put in Italics or All Caps.  Follow the guides below in the order listed to see what may and may not be included, and TYPE THE ANNOUNCEMENT AS YOU WISH FOR IT TO APPEAR IN THE PAPER (it may be edited for style and policy).

PHOTOS: If you wish to include a photo, please submit a recent photo of the couple together. If you are sending it by e-mail, attach it as a separate .jpg or .tif file and be sure to include the couple’s name in the subject line. It does not matter if the photo is in color or black and white, and we can reduce if necessary. Images should be sharp and in-focus. Please try to avoid busy or confusing backgrounds.

SUBMITTING: The easiest way to submit the announcement is to e-mail it to: RomanLife@RN-T.com. If not submitted by e-mail, the announcement and photo  may be dropped off in the Newsroom at 305 E. Sixth Ave., or may be mailed to: Attn. Roman Life Department, c/o Rome News-Tribune, 305 E. Sixth Ave., Rome, GA 30161. Photos may be picked up after the announcement is published.

DEADLINE: Announcements must be submitted by Tuesday at noon for consideration in the following Sunday’s newspaper. Engagement announcements should be submitted at least a month before the wedding date. However, because of space limitations, every announcement meeting the deadline might not appear in the that Sunday’s edition (especially during busy wedding seasons). For assistance please call 706-290-5255 or 706-290-5252 or e-mail RomanLife@RN-T.com.

The Rome News-Tribune will attempt to verify submitted information with both parties involved in wedding, engagement and anniversary announcements. If both parties cannot be reached for verification, the announcement may not be published on the date requested.
