File requirements

Make sure your ad prints accurately by submitting high-quality, print-ready files using these guidelines.

  • PDFs must be CMYK using SWOP standards. Convert all images to process color (RGB and spot colors are not accepted).
  • Images should be 300 dpi at size used in ad.
  • Use Type 1 or OpenType fonts only (no TrueType or font substitutions).
  • Do not embed ICC Profiles in images.
  • Preflight your file in Adobe Acrobat before uploading (use PDF/X-1A compliance) to check for errors.
  • If your file does not pass our preflight program, we will return it to you with the preflight report to assist you in correcting the file.
