The safe area is 5" x 8". Please do not place text and other important content outside of this area or it may be cut-off during printing.
  • 300 dpi
  • CMYK

B&W ads:

  • For full page ads only: if your ad prints full bleed you must include a .25" bleed in your document. See the comment for color ads above.
  • 300 dpi (for photo and grayscale artwork)
  • 600 dpi (for text and line art)
  • Please convert all artwork to black and white. If you submit color artwork we can’t guarantee how well it will print in black and white.
