PRODUCING YOUR AD
Ad Orientation Ads must be designed so they can be placed on either left or right pages.
File Types We prefer a print-resolution, version 1.3 (Acrobat version 4) PDF or PDF/X-1a with live type, embedded fonts, CMYK colors only, and flattened transparency. You may also submit PDFs or InDesign, QuarkXPress, Photoshop, or Illustrator EPS or TIFF files. Upload your file(s) to us via texasmonthly.com/upload-ad or send us a disk and proof. Ads created in Pagemaker, Microsoft Publisher, or other applications not mentioned above may not be usable. If you use a Windows PC, include a high-res PDF, TIFF or EPS file in addition to source files. We may not be able to modify Windows-based files if your ad has a problem and our deadline prevents getting a corrected ad from you.
Creating a PDF Current versions of InDesign, QuarkXPress, Illustrator, and Photoshop have options for outputting high-resolution, print-ready PDF or PDF/X-1a files. Consult your documentation for details. You can also use Acrobat Distiller to create PDFs; here is a Distiller job options file. TEXAS MONTHLY Production will check your PDF, fix any problems we can, and notify you if we can’t. If you are at all unsure about whether or not your PDF is print-quality, please send us your source files along with the PDF.
Fonts Do not use Adobe Type 3, Windows Type 1, or Multiple Master fonts. Choose bold or italic fonts when needed; don’t apply bold or italic styles to plain fonts or your type may not output correctly. To avoid font issues with EPS files, be sure to supply the fonts used in them if you’re sending a file type besides a PDF, and/or consider converting your EPS file’s fonts to outlines.
Transparency If your PDF contains transparency, TEXAS MONTHLY will flatten the transparency to vectors and bitmaps using standard settings, and is not responsible for any resulting reproduction problems (including “stitching,” which can turn flattened transparency boundaries into solid lines or gaps).
Crop Marks Use crop marks to indicate bleed and trim for bleed ads. Offset your crop marks at least 1/8” to keep them out of the bleed.
Bleed/Non-bleed Ads Please make sure you submit ads that reflect the bleed status of the ad space you have closed. You are still responsible for paying bleed charges if you submit a non-bleed ad but have reserved a bleed-ad space.
Image Resolution All bitmap images should be at least 300dpi. Do not enlarge 300dpi images more than 100% as this will result in a lower-resolution image. Files containing bitmapped text should be at least 600dpi. TEXAS MONTHLY will print ads containing images under 300 dpi at its discretion.
Colors Unless you’ve made arrangements to print a PMS/spot color for an additional cost, your ad must contain only process (CMYK) colors. TEXAS MONTHLY will convert PMS/spot colors (as well as RGB ones) to CMYK and remove color profiles in ad files, and is not responsible for resulting color shifts. To avoid this, please convert all PMS/spot colors to CMYK before you send us your ad, and do not embed color profiles in image files. If you are running a PMS color as a second or fifth color, notify TEXAS MONTHLY of the PMS color number and approximate percent coverage by the space closing date. Metallic colors are available as well for an additional cost. PMS colors are not available in special advertising sections.
Blacks in Four-Color Ads You may use a “rich black” of 60% cyan, 1% magenta, 1% yellow, and 100% black in four-color ads for a deeper black color, but only when the black element is at least 1/4″ wide. Do not use rich black of any kind for text. If necessary, we will attempt to convert rich black text, or items smaller than 1/4″ wide, to 100% K. Black elements will overprint by default – i.e., any underlying cyan, magenta, or yellow ink will cause variations in the “richness” of the black. If you wish black elements to knock out, please include at least 1% of all four colors in the black.
Density of Tone In black-and-white ads, a tone density greater than 85% may fill in on press. For four-color ads, the sum of color densities should not exceed 310%, with no more than one color printing solid. Two colors should not exceed 170% with one color solid or both colors screened.
Advertising “Slugs” Per American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Guidelines, any advertisement that might be mistaken for editorial content must be “slugged” with the word “Advertisement,” “Special Advertising Section,” or “Promotion” at the top of the ad in type that is at least 9 points in size. TEXAS MONTHLY will add this slug at its discretion, but we prefer you add the slug yourself. For more information, visit magazine.org/asme/editorial-guidelines.
