PRODUCING YOUR AD

File type

Please submit all final artwork as a print-resolution PDF (Acrobat version 4 or higher) with crop marks. If you cannot provide a PDF, a high resolution TIFF file (Photoshop) or an EPS file (Illustrator) is acceptable. We do not accept .docx, .page, .pub or .jpeg files for print production.

Fonts

When finalizing your ad, please be sure to embed or outline ALL fonts. You may also supply the font files in addition to your ad if using an EPS file. Please utilize bold and italic fonts when needed as opposed to applying bold and italic styles, which can alter the output of your ad.

Transparency

If your PDF contains a transparency, please save the file with flattened transparencies within the options window when exporting.

Color Mode

All ads must be process (CMYK) mode. Any ads containing RGB or Pantone/Spot colors will be converted by Bauer College and may cause slight color shifts.
