For magazine ads, please submit digital artwork as a PDF file. If the PDF format is not available, we can accept TIFF, Adobe Photoshop 5.5 or earlier in EPS format, Adobe Illustrator 8.0 for Mac, or Quark Xpress 4.1 (or earlier) for Mac. For any formats not PDF or TIFF, you must include all of the fonts in the artwork, both screen and postscript. For Illustrator or Quark, all images present in the artwork must also be sent as an independent file.
