Ad Copy Specifications
The following are some guidelines we have put together to help us maintain a level of quality right from the beginning. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and ask for the ad design department. We will be happy to help in any way possible.
Logos on business cards, letterhead, etc. are fine as long as they are "clean-looking" and printed in a dark ink on a light paper. The quality of faxed or photocopied sheets with logos on them is not acceptable and cannot be used in the ad.
A black and white photo or a color photo with a strong contrast between the subject and the background will suffice. We can scan any photo ranging in size from 1" x 2" to 8" x 10". Keep in mind, it is always better to scan something that is larger than the final piece since reducing in size maintains image quality while enlarging degrades it.
Preprinted photos, such as those on business cards or brochures, cannot be used.
E-Mail, Upload Or Files On Disk
Your photos, logos and even the entire ad layout can be submitted via email or be uploaded by using our ad copy upload form found here. If you are composing the entire ad layout yourself, please call our office at 616-878-5200 or 1-800-783-1623 for exact ad size measurements. We recommend submitting your ad copy via our Ad Copy Submission form for the quickest response.
