Artwork and Space Policies
Ads should be submitted with raster elements no lower than 300 dpi.
We have an external trim so bleeds are not necessary, although we do recommend a live area equal to the ad size minus 1/4” .
Ads submitted that do not conform with the printed size specifications will be reduced, enlarged, or floated at the discretion of the Publisher. We make no guarantee for the reproduction quality of any artwork that must be re-sized.
Publisher strongly discourages the use of reverse ads with Serif typefaces.
Best results achieved on reverses using a maximum 70 line screen and 10 pt. type or larger.
