DISPLAY AD REQUIREMENTS
UPDATE - September 1st, 2016
Please make a note that beginning with our November publication, we will be requesting you to submit all of your print advertising to us via AdShuttle at the link below.
AdShuttle will allow you to see your advertisement as it will appear in one of the pages of our magazines, and approve the material for publication. It also will help us ensure the highest quality reproduction of your ad. You may request a proof from SGC for a fee.
Please note: The only accepted ad file format is PDF/X-1a (saved to PDF/X-1A standards).
Ads should be at least 300 dpi and in CMYK color format. We do not print Pantone colors, so any spot colors should be converted to CMYK.
Full-page ads that are meant to bleed should have an extra 1/8” of bleed space around all 4 sides, and live materials (text and non-bleed images) should be at least ¼”-1/2” from the trim edge. Bleed ads should incorporate crop marks.
Fractional ads that will not bleed off the page should not be submitted with bleed.
Please refer to your media kit for correct ad dimensions.
