Advertising Specs

WE WANT YOUR AD TO PRINT CORRECTLY. Ad files with problems or last-minute changes increase the chance of print error. Please make every effort to deliver your materials on time and to our specifications in order to avoid issues or additional charges.

The most common errors are images not converted to CMYK, low-resolution graphics, text outside the safety margin, the use of spot or RGB colors, and missing bleed allowances on bleed ads. Please help us by reading the following information.
