Specifications for ad submission:

We prefer all ads be submitted as high-resolution, print-ready PDFs. If you cannot supply your ad as a print-ready PDF, please contact us before submitting. Sorry, we cannot accept hard mechanicals.

Please do not supply your ad with crop marks, bleed marks, registration marks, colour bars or page information.

For all submissions, please include your email address as well as phone contact information in case we have any questions or concerns about your files.

All fonts used in your ad must be outlined.

If the ad is to be printed in colour, it must be in “print mode”, that is CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)
not RGB (red, green, blue).

All images (covers, author photos, etc) should be at a resolution of 300 dpi and not above 100% size, if possible.

If your ad uses logos, we strongly recommend they come from vector art files rather than rasterized files. Please contact us if you have a question.

It is strongly recommended that ads not be constructed using Photoshop or MS Word. If that is the software
you must use, please contact us first for specific instructions.

 

If you have any technical questions about our instructions or technical concerns about your ad, please consult with Rick Blechta at castlefieldmedia@gmail.com, or call (416) 782-3116 during business hours (EST).
