General ad art guidelines
For the best quality, these are the recommended ad image specifications:
- Program (print) ads should be 300 DPI resolution at print size. Web ads and e-blast ads are recommended to be 72 DPI at 1 1/2 times or double the display size.
- .EPS, .JPG, .TIFF, and .PDF files (exported with high quality or PRESS setting) are fine. All fonts should be embedded.
- InDesign files up to CS6 are also acceptable, as long as the art and fonts are packaged with the design file.
- Black & White program ads: grayscale mode is optimal.
- Color ads: For program ads, CMYK color mode is optimal. We can convert the colors from RGB (web colors) to CMYK, but colors may vary. For Web ads and e-blast ads, RGB is fine.
