Unless arrangements have been made, the following are HRU ad requirements.

Full page ads:

  • PDF format
  • File size of 1 MB or less
  • Trim size (no bleed, crop marks or blank space border)
  • RGB format (no CMYK)
  • If the ad is created in InDesign, export with Acrobat 4 compatibility to sRGB output

All other ads:

  • JPG format is the preferred file format for any ad that is not full page
    (we can work with other file types but additional fees may be involved to convert your ads to JPG for our production platform)
  • 300 DPI is the preferred resolution to allow the most flexibility
  • 200 DPI is acceptable for online-only editions (not for printed sales editions)
