File Formats

PDF FILES: A PDF file can be made from many different kinds of programs, and is the preferred submission format. PDF files should be created using the standard "Print" pre-set, version 7 or above compatibility. They should be created at the exact the size required for your ad with fonts embedded. Full-page ads that have backgrounds or images that are "cut-off" at the page edges require that you add an extra 1/8" to all four edges of the publication page size of the ad for this material to "bleed" into. If you anticipate the possibility of requiring us to make last minute changes to your ad prior to publication, you should submit your files in one of the formats below. No matter what program you create your PDF file in, all colors must be defined using the CMYK color space, and any images must also use the CMYK color space. DO NOT add any printer marks (crops, bleed marks, targets, color bars, etc.).

ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE FILES: A file in any version of Adobe Creative Suite no earlier than CS5 is acceptable. InDesign files require that you include any fonts or placed graphics used in the file. Illustrator files should be saved as native (.ai) Illustrator files or as Illustrator EPS files (.eps) with fonts and graphics embedded. Any placed image files must also be CMYK with a resolution of 300 dpi. If you anticipate us making any last-minute changes to your Illustrator ad, you should also include the fonts and graphics used in the file. While ads created in Photoshop are discouraged, they will be accepted if they are saved as native (.psd) files, unflattened with all layers included, and the file is in CMYK color format at a resolution of 300 dpi. You will also need to include the fonts you used when you created the file. The same sizing and "bleed" requirements mentioned above under PDF FILES also apply to files created in Adobe Creative Suite programs.

IMAGE FILES: Image files are discouraged, and should not be used unless your file consists of nothing but a photograph without any type. They must be at least 300 dpi resolution, in TIFF format (.tif), with no compression, and in the CMYK color format. The same sizing and "bleed" requirements apply as above.

COLOR: No matter how your file is created, all colors used in your file must be defined using the CMYK color space. This includes any images embedded or placed in the files. This also requires that the "transparency blend space" in InDesign, the "document color mode" in Illustrator, and the "image mode" in Photoshop be set to CMYK. Any image files, alone or placed in another program, must use the CMYK color space.

FONTS: Independently of the program used or whether or not they are embedded or a PDF is created, ONLY the following font formats are acceptable:

1) True Type (.ttf)

2) Open Type (.otf)

3) Macintosh (only) Postscript Type 2 fonts. These fonts require both outline font files (one for each font used, including separate files for italics, bold, etc.), and at least one "suitcase" file that contains the bitmap and metrics information for any outline fonts used. There is currently no standard for file extensions used for these fonts and we recommend that you use the function that may be available in the program you used to create the file, or your font management software to "collect" the fonts, which will ensure that all fonts are included and in the proper format.

4) PC (Windows) Postscript and multiple master fonts are not acceptable under any circumstance.
