Formats: Submit ad materials in a press-ready Adobe Acrobat PDF [Version 5.0 (1.4) or later] in CMYK color mode. Other file types can be accepted, please contact the production manager for details.

Output resolution for CTP (computer to plate) is 2540. PICT, Paint, GIF, Quicktime, PowerPoint, and Quark or InDesign source files are not acceptable formats.

Colors/Images: RGB, spot, Lab, and ICC-based colors are not accepted and must be converted to process (CMYK) in the original document before processing for ad file output. Link all images. Image resolution must be at least 300 dpi; line art should be at least 800-1200 dpi. Do not save images with screen angles or transfer functions. Images must be positioned in boxes, with a fill of white or 0% black. Do all resizing, rotating, or skewing to graphics within the graphic program, not the page layout program.

Fonts: All fonts must be embedded or converted to outlines and paths.

Bleed/Border: For full-page, ad must extend .125" beyond the trim for each edge that bleeds. For full-page, live materials must be at least .5" from trim, or .625" from bleed edge. Fractional ads do not bleed. Any ad that requires a border must be submitted with the border included.

Color Proofs: A hard copy proof is requested for all digital ad files for print. Color lasers or faxes are accepted, but will be used for content reference only and will not accompany your ad file to the presses. If color is critical, please provide a SWOP-certified proof (with color bars, exposure scales, and crop marks) for color guidance on press. For current SWOP specifications and additional information, go to www.swop.org. Jameson Publishing cannot be held responsible for color, positioning, or accuracy of digital file output if a SWOP-certified proof has not been provided.
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a SWOP-certified proof requested?
SWOP-certified proofs (not color lasers or PDFs) are used by our print company to monitor the colors of ads throughout the print process. The requirement is included with our digital specs, and for current SWOP specifications and additional information, go to www.swop.org. Using a SWOP-certified proof allows you to see how your file will print, and if there's any problem, you can have it corrected before submitting to us. You may choose to fax a copy and trust that the colors in the file will print to your satisfaction, but we must ask for your written acknowledgement regarding responsibility.

Does Integrated Solutions For Retailers have an FTP site?
