Advertising & Sponsorships
Advertising Sponsorship is a great way to help support the wonderful events of Jeff Mach Events while also building your business.
You do not have to be a vendor at GKE Classic to advertise or sponsor! You can reach our attendees even if you can’t be at the event!
Through our sponsorship program, you can leverage the popularity of our events to promote yourself through program book ads, web ads, and even social media.
A 10% discount will be offered to those advertising/sponsoring at both GKE:NE in EXILE and GKE Classic
An overview of advertising and sponsorship is below. Please use the Order Form to place your advertising and sponsorship order.
All of our vendors are invited to place an ad in the event playbill to extend your reach beyond the event. Not vending? Your business can still reach this niche audience with an ad in the full color playbill!
Ad copy deadline: October 15, 2016. All copy must be received by this date in order to meet printing deadlines.
All files must be 300dpi and CMYK. File Formats accepted for print ads: PDF, JPG, PSD, and TIF. Please add a 1/8th inch bleed on all printed ads. Don’t have an ad? No problem! Design services are available.

Do you have a sponsorship idea you don’t see here? Please indicate that you are interested in a custom sponsorship on the Order Form and we will contact you to discuss the possibilities.
KinKardia (ConCardia – GKE variation)
ConCardia will be at GKE Classic! You also have the opportunity to provide tournament prizes. GKE features a Kink specific version of ConCardia – KinKardia!
What is ConCardia? ConCardia is a collectible card game in the truest sense of the phrase. Rather than buying packs, players get cards by exploring the convention. They sign up at the ConCardia table for free and are given a series of tasks and quests to get cards. The very first quest they must complete before they can pursue any others is that of visiting every single sponsoring vendor to get the card that they hold.
- Basic KinKardia Sponsorship (100 cards) – $50
- Extra KinKardia card sets – $10/100 cards
