MOA GUIDELINES FOR ADS
MOA needs to have all ads for newsletters, website and conference programs in a “print ready” form. This means that your file is ready to insert into the newsletter, website or program “as is.” A print ready ad needs no changes and cannot be altered.
WHAT IS A PRINT READY AD?
- Size: It is the exact ad size of purchased ad.
- Resolution: All elements including images must be a minimum
of 300 dpi at print size.
- Color: Black and white (or gray scale) only.
- Format: jpg, tif, psd or pdf format.
- Fonts: All fonts are converted to paths or flattened into the ad.
- Layers: Ad is flattened into one layer.
- Ad is ready to go “as is.”
WHAT IS NOT PRINT READY?
- The Wrong Size: Print ready ads do not need to be resized by us.
- The Wrong Format: No Word, Publisher, or PowerPoint files please.
- Low Resolution: Ads must be 300 dpi or above. No web images.
- A Layered File: File must be flattened
An Unfinished Ad: Print ready files need no changes.
We will not accept copyright protected material.
NOTE: If you do not have the capability to produce a print ready ad, we would be happy to recommend a designer. Typical design fees in Montana are $70 per hour with a one-hour minimum charge.
If you have questions or want to reserve ad space and submit your ad, email Seth Swanson, or phone him at (406) 258-4205.
For editorial or design questions, email Susan, our newsletter editor.
