How to Send Your Ad
The easiest way to send your ad is either as a PDF or as a very high-resolution image (including the type and everything) in TIFF or Photoshop format. The resolution should be at least 300 dpi for halftones and 1200 dpi for line art if you want the crispest reproduction possible.
The ad can be sent to us on a CD, DVD, USB drive, or can be emailed (email@example.com). If the file is too large, a service such as Dropbox or Wetransfer.com can be used.
Remember to keep your type at least 1/4″ away from the edge of the magazine. For full-page ads, it is very important that the size of your document be exactly 8.125″ wide and 10.875″ tall. For full-page ads that print over the edge of the paper, be sure to include the necessary .125″ “bleed.” Do not include the bleed as part of the document size, but simply have it hang over the edge on all four sides. Make sure that there are no spot colors used in your document — all colors and color images should be in CMYK format (not RGB). For PDF files created in InDesign, use the “Press Quality” present. If you have questions about file preparation, call us at 1 (800) 999-4697 and we will be happy to walk you through it.
If you want to send your advertisement to us another way, need marketing/design help, or have any questions at all, please call our art department at 1 (800) 999-4697 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to help you. We are proud of our magazine’s appearance, and want your ad to look the very best that it can.
