File Format:

We accept Photoshop, Illustrator (EPS or AI), PDF, jpeg, and tiff files.


We accept high resolution images at a minimum of 300 dpi at the actual printing size. We cannot use images that are made for the web, as these are only 72 dpi.


Coupons must always be on the right half of the ad.


If you are sending us ready made artwork, the file must be in CMYK color mode.


It is best to give us the original photograph to scan or burn the high resolution image onto a CD. Please avoid using images from brochures.


All logos should be crisp and clean on a white background. Scanned artwork should be done in Photoshop at 300 dpi at 100% of the printed size. Images with type should be scanned and saved
at 1200 dpi.


We can accept ready made PDF's. These ads must fit our size specifications and our layout format–all coupons on the right side of the ad. It is best to send us a press ready PDF using the PDF export preset labeled PDF/X-1a. All PDF's must be done in CMYK color mode, all fonts should be postscript or Open Type. Do not use True Type Fonts. Be sure to embed all the fonts.

If you would like us to use an image from a corporate website, we require that you submit specific, detailed instructions to lead us to the image. These directions must include the exact web address, the ID name and password, and the precise path that will allow us to navigate to the exact image.
