ADVERTISING ART SPECIFICATIONS:
The Gazette - both special edition and regular issues - are printed on high-speed web presses - four color process inks
The Gazette on uncoated Mandabrite - high white
Special Editions: Gardeners Guide and Small Shops Guide are printed on Bright White Book Stock paper
Files submitted should be 300 dpi minimum CMYK, PDF is best Jpeg is acceptable
The most important thing to do is to CREATE the file in CMYK. I get too many people who create their ads in RGB then
change the mode to CMYK. It causes problems with ink saturation - especially with black which becomes high percentages of all four
Solid colors should be no more than a mix of 3 of the 4 colors - black in any color will print darker than what you
see on your screen.
If you use REVERSE text - the line width should be semi-bold to bold and the font preferable san serif at a minimum
of 10 pt. Anything smaller can cause registration issues. This press is running fast - they do a good job holding registration
but it’s not perfect.
