Classified Ad Declined and I cant figure out why?

I submitted an ad for a press that I have decided to sell and the ad was declined and I am not sure what I need to do to fix it.

I am selling my Golding Pearl and I dont know if I can even post the ad here in the forum to get help.

Can anyone give me any idea why and ad would be rejected?

Thank you,

I do not know why but I might be interested in your Pearl. Where are you located? and do you have pictures of the press? I am in the Portland, OR area and just started a small studio.

Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving.


Hi Kay,

I think a lot of people would be interested if I could get the ad approved. I am in Des Moines, IA.

I do have photos that are attached to the ad. I will attach one here. Hopefully someone will get back to me soon about why my ad was rejected.

Do you have a price set yet?

I do have a price but I wasnt sure if I should post all of that information here because apparently the ad was rejected for some reason. I did not want to cause trouble.

I will message you directly and wait for response from owners.


Yes I think a lot of people would be interested. Is there any way you can send you asking price and other info?

Denis - I am still waiting to hear back on the ad. I really dont want to have to send all this information individually.

The intent of this post was to get some help regarding the ad but that does not seem to be happening.

If I dont hear back from briarpress by the end of the day I will email you the details.


Brandi - I’m posting a personal note in this thread to ask you to check your mail and filters. A private reply was sent to your inquiry yesterday. If you didn’t receive it, please contact me.

Thanks for your interest.

This issue has been resolved - thank you briarpress/Elizabeth for your quick response.

I am trying to post an ad in classifieds for a Charles Brand Etching Press. I am not a commercial business, I am a working artist. So it would seem to me that it is a “personal” not a “commercial” ad. Do I need to donate a fee, if so, how much? I am tired of trying to get the ad up and follow all the suggested paths. I am a better painter and printmaker than I am a web user!
