Each magazine is printed web offset: perfect bound. All dimensions are
displayed as width x height. Full page ads and spreads should have a .25
inch safety margin from the trim on all sides. Type and critical elements are not recommended to crossover the gutter on spreads as an exact alignment is not guaranteed. Account for a 1/4" in the center for the glue. All high-resolution images, artwork, and fonts must be included when the file is
created. All colors and images must be CMYK. Total area density should
not exceed the SWOP standard of 300%.
All advertising materials must be received by the due date.
Advertisers will be invoiced at publisher's cost for all preparation charges.
Exact color reproduction is our goal, but is not guaranteed. Color variances on press, and from issue to issue, stay within established SWOP ranges. Publisher is not responsible for
errors advertiser fails to correct on supplied files.
PDF is the preferred file format for
submission. All images must be CMYK
and between 300 and 400 dpi.
