    Production Guidelines
    Please provide high-quality digital artwork. If you do not have a designer to create your ad, The SHAD Connection will design and produce an ad for you for fees of $30/$60/$90, depending on the size and complexity of the ad. Larger ads will be quoted separately. You should provide any original photos or logos to recreate an existing ad or to rebuild a business card to our ad sizes. Please do not submit scanned, previously printed materials. Any problem which requires a change to be press-ready will be fixed and billed according to the time it takes to repair or recreate them with $15 as the minimum charge.

    File types
    • We accept high-quality PDFs or high-res jpg or tif files.
    • We do not accept .doc/docx, .ppt or .xlcx documents (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel.)

    Use of black and white or color and photo images
    • Black and white ads must be 100% black, not RGB.
    • Color ads must be cmyk; convert any RGB or spot PMS colors to cmyk.
    • Screens/tints must be between 10 and 40 percent. Color builds should not exceed 240 percent.
    • Type smaller than 12 pt must be solid black, cyan or magenta. Do not use type smaller than 9 point. Embed fonts.
    • Photos must be a minimum of 200 dpi at 100 percent.

    File Name
    • Please name the file with company name or initials, followed by the issue it is to appear. If the same ad is to run all year, use 2014-15. For example: YoursTruly_Fall14 or YT_2014-15.
