Ad File Preparation Requirements

General Guidelines

Ensure that all images are a minimum of 300dpi at 100% of final placement size.

Convert all spot/special colors to four-color process.

Please provide CMYK files and images only.

Do not submit files in RGB, or files containing additional channels.

All Ads should be built with either Macintosh PostScript Type 1 fonts or OpenType fonts with PostScript outlines (.otf).

TrueType fonts will not be accepted.

Native Application Files

QuarkXPress 4.0 or higher, InDesign 6.0 or higher ONLY.

When submitting native application files, we require all support images and fonts.

Flatten any transparency.

Do not menu-style fonts (i.e. by selecting italic in the style menu). Use the font variation instead.

Use the QuarkXPress “Collect for Output” feature, or the InDesign “Preflight” feature to ensure all page elements (images and fonts) are captured and included.

We do not accept Illustrator, Photoshop, Pagemaker, or Microsoft Word Files.

PDF File Settings

High Quality Print with box checked (USE DOCUMENT BLEED SETTINGS) converted to CMYK.

Please note that PDF files have limited editing capability and our team may require native files if any changes must be made to your layout. We highly recommend submitting native files along with PDF files.

PDF Files are Not Acceptable as Color Proofs. It is recommended that a contract proof be sent with your PDF file. Please see the Contract Proofing Section.

Preflight

Run preflight software on file(s) whenever possible and provide the preflight report with all final digital files.

Naming and Compressing Files

The Ad File Name must include the name of the Advertiser (or a recognizable abbreviation) as below:

AdvertiserName_WS2019.

Do Not Name Your Ad File : “WS_AD” or any other name that does not include the Advertiser Name.

Please ensure that your file name does not contain any spaces (use_underscores_instead) or special characters.

Do not attempt to upload files with file names containing more than 27 characters, or containing the characters \, /, :, *, ?, <, >, or |.

Compress all files into one archive prior to transfer. StuffIt (.sit, .sea), Zip (.zip), or BinHex (.hqx) encoding will be accepted. StuffIt (.sit) compression is recommended. StuffIt software can be downloaded from: www.stuffit.com.

Files over 40 MB should be sent to m@group-m.com via WeTransfer.com or other FTP file service, clearly identified with the Advertiser name and contact information.

CONTRACT PROOFING MATERIAL

We strongly suggest that a Contract Proof be sent to our Catalogue Production Team to use to match the color in your Ad when it is printed.

Use the GracoL color reproduction specification for sheetfed offset lithography.

Proof MUST have a COLOR BAR showing READABLE Color Densities.

Send your Contract Proof to:

Tomas Sokol
Group M
1024 North 3rd Street
Suite 101
