About DerpyCon

DerpyCon is a multi-genre sci-fi convention, celebrating the culture of science fiction, fantasy, animation, gaming and beyond. DerpyCon will be holding its fourth annual event November 17-19, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Morristown in Morristown, NJ.

We are pleased to have a diversified guest list that includes, among others, voice actor Todd Haberkorn, known as the English voice actor for such characters as Allen Walker in D. Gray-man and Ling Yao in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood; and Walter Jones and David Yost of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fame.

We are currently seeking sponsors for DerpyCon 2017. As a fourth year convention with an expected attendance of 1800, sponsorships are perfect for vendors of the convention and local businesses in the town of Morristown, NJ to promote themselves. Each DerpyCon attendee will receive a bag containing a full color 8.5” x 11”, 30-40 page program guide, with event scheduling information, guest highlights, a local guide to nearby businesses and attractions and more.

  • Artwork for printed ads must be rendered in CMYK color format. We cannot guarantee the printed quality of your ad if it is submitted as RGB.
  • For best results, artwork should be rendered at a minimum of 300 dpi, at the size it is intended to reproduce in the book.
  • Full bleed artwork should adhere to the bleed dimensions. Important text or image elements should remain within the Live/Non-Bleed area to prevent them from being trimmed off the page. Artwork submitted with Non-Bleed dimensions will be bordered with the background color of the relevant page.
  • Artwork which may be confused for content produced by DerpyCon must include the text “Paid Advertisement” at the bottom of the ad inside the visible area using at least 8-point font. This determination will be made by DerpyCon If the text does not appear on the submitted image and is required, DerpyCon will add the text to the bottom of the image inside the visible area.
  • Artwork must be submitted as unlocked PDF, EPS, or TIFF formats. We highly suggest that you do not submit print ads as JPEG since it is what is known as a “lossy” format and image quality degrades significantly each time the file is saved. A JPEG can be included as a visual proof however.
  • DerpyCon is not responsible for typographical errors or errors in publishing.
  • DerpyCon reserves the right to refuse to publish any ad that DerpyCon determines is inappropriate.
