Artwork can be sent via e-mail or a web file storage and sharing website such as Dropbox. We accept the following file types PDF, JPEG, TIFF, Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop files. If submitting application file(s), include all supporting fonts and images used in the advertisement, all images should be at least 150 - 300 DPI.

Graphic Specifications:

Advertisers are encouraged to submit PDF and PDF/X1-A files provided that they are prepared for press-optimized printing in CMYK with fonts embedded. You should convert colors to CMYK prior to submission because color shifts may occur. Advertisements received in RGB or spot color will be converted to CMYK. All colors are printed using 4-color process (CMYK).


If ads are submitted with incorrect font versions, we may substitute with close Postscript matches. On illustrations it is recommended to convert text to outline, however outline text cannot be altered. If using black type make sure the background is a light color. If using white type make sure the background is a dark color.

Submitting Artwork

Prefer advertising material to be e-mailed if it is 50MB or under in file size. If file(s) are larger, compress with an application such as a ZIP archive. If file(s) are still over 50MB please send either by Dropbox or similar web storage option.

All advertising material and computer specification questions should be forwarded to:
