Tribute Journal trim size is 8”x8”, no bleed ads. Each ad will be bordered by a thin rule. Full page: 7.4” wide x 7.4” tall, Half Page Vertical: 3.6” wide x 7.4” tall, Quarter Page: 3.6” wide x 3.6” tall. Diamond, Emerald, Ruby pages are four color.

Options for electronic ad submission: Electronic art in PDF format is preferred. Quark Xpress or Adobe InDesign files MUST be converted to Adobe Acrobat PDF. (make PDF “press quality” – CMYK, 300dpi, maximum quality, all fonts fully embedded – not subsets). Adobe Illustrator EPS (CMYK with all fonts converted to outlines), Photoshop TIFF (CMYK, 300dpi, flattened to a single “background” layer).
Company Logos: Illustrator EPS vector art is the preferred format (convert type to outlines); optionally, high-res TIFF format may be acceptable.
What to Avoid: We cannot accept ads sent as Microsoft Word files. Do not send logos embedded in Word files. Web or other low-res graphics (under 288 dpi) are unacceptable. Please email your ad file as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include name and contact of the individual or organization reserving the ad space.
Non-Electronic Ad Submission: Camera-ready art (color, grayscale, or lineart) is also acceptable and we can scan it for you. Send your art in a protective envelope, as we will not be able to retouch any art and it will be scanned in the condition it is received.
If you are unable to provide an electronic or camera-ready ad, we can lay out an ad for you. Please include your message clearly and mail to the IMF or email to email@example.com.
