Mechanical Requirements

  • We can accept pdf files for ads; ads are black and white only.
  • Publication trim size is 6 x 9 inches.
  • The standards for scanning resolution are as follows:
  • grayscale images : should be 2 times the line screen
  • 150 line = 300 dpi (dots per inch) or 300 ppi (pixels per inch)
  • 133 line = 266 dpi / ppi
  • The lowest we can use without pixelization is 225 ppi.
  • For line art images: minimum 600 ppi, which will be slightly jagged; we suggest 1200 ppi
  • for very fine detail (drawings) may require 2400 ppi.
  • It is best to scan the image at the percentage it will be used if you are placing it into a pdf file.
  • If an ad is sent in application format and we have to size it, remember that enlarging an image will decrease the resolution, resulting in poor quality. Reductions will increase resolution.
  • Ad page is 4½ x 7½.
