[title title=”Please submit your ad according to the following specifications” align=”center”]

High-resolution PDF files, but .eps, and .jpg are also accepted. Please make sure that all color and images are converted to CMYK before saving in PDF format. On two-page and full page ads with bleed, do not include text at least 1 inch from the final trim around edges. Otherwise, content is at risk of being cutoff.  Embed all fonts and/or convert to outlines.

If instructions are not followed, Occasions Media Group will not be held responsible.

Ads can be submitted via dropbox at the address below or emailed to your advertising account executive. A minimum file resolution of 300 dpi is required. Low resolution logos and photographs pulled from the internet are not acceptable art for print. No PMS links are available. While we strive to match our client’s color specifications, we cannot guarantee a perfect match. No hardcopy proofs will be provided before final artwork is sent to print.

Please save your artwork in a file titled as your company name and date your artwork for which issue it should run in.
