Electronic: png files work fine or Printer-optimized PDF files with all fonts embedded.. Low-resolution screen-optimized PDF’s are not acceptable. (You would not be happy with the Quality.) I have worked with Word files as pictures, and tiff’s, but again the reproduction quality will suffer for your ad.

Film: Negatives, right reading emulsion side down. A Matchprint proof to be used as a scan can also be submitted. Photo ready copy sized to the specs below is also acceptable.

  • Full Page: 7.75“ (W) x 10” (T)
  • Half Page Horizontal: 7.75” (W) x 5” (T)
  • Half Page Vertical: 3.875” (W) x 10” (T)
  • Quarter Page Horizontal: 7.75” (W) x 2.5” (T)
  • Quarter Page Vertical: 1.9375” (W) x 10” (T)
  • Simple Quarter Page: 3.875” (W) x 5” (T)

This does not include “Bleed” room for fuzzy edge ads. We reserve the flexibility to slightly increase the size of your Ad for lay-out if necessary (no extra cost to you). In no case will your ad size be smaller than the mechanical specs listed above. We do not have the capability with our process to handle two page spreads as one proof sheet, there will be margin.
