ADVERTISING ART SPECIFICATIONS:
The Gazette is printed on high-speed web presses - four color process inks
uncoated Mandabrite - high white paper.
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.
