This program will be wiro bound, which means that the inside margin of every page will be hole-punched and a metal wiro binding will be placed through the hole punches. To make sure that your ad is not affected by the hole punch, please make sure a half-inch safe area margin is used when constructing your ads for the program.

Double page spreads will need to take this into account for the middle inch of their designs.

Single page ads will need to use the safe area of 6″x 9.5″ as directed above.

All full page ads need 1/4″ bleeds.

Program Artwork Requirements

All artwork must be supplied at 300 DPI. High-res PDF, EPS, TIFF, and JPEG files are accepted. Images from the web are not suitable for printing.

All color artwork must be in CMYK mode. Artwork in RGB mode or containing PMS colors is not accepted and, if supplied, will be converted to CMYK mode. Conversion to CMYK will result in a color shift.

All screen and printer fonts, as well as linked images, must be embedded in the file.

Text placed outside the live area within any full-page or double page spread ad may be cut off. Please keep text within the live area at all times.

Please remember to send the file with NO CROP MARKS, REGISTRATION MARKS, or PRINTER’S MARKS of any kind. This ensures that those marks do not get printed on the ad.
