We prefer that ads be sent in high-resolution (266 dpi minimum) image file formats, such as PDF (press-optimized), EPS (outlined fonts), TIFF, or JPEG. Ads can be sent via e-mail, Zip disk, or CD-ROM. We also accept Quark files, which should be collected with all accompanying graphics and fonts in one folder. If sent via e-mail, files should be compressed into a Stuffit or Zip file. E-mailed EPS or TIFF graphics also need to be compressed. We also accept film negatives (133 line-screen, emulsion up) and paper positives (100-133) lines, grayscale only). All color ads should be in CMYK format, and the darkest areas should be less than 220% total ink.
For digital 4-color cover ads, please call for specifications.
