ADVERTISING ARTWORK SPECS
This information is provided as a courtesy only to our advertisers. Don Diva Magazine will not be responsible for any artwork that is created or does not print according to the advertisers desires. We recommend all artwork be proofed and/or formatted by an experienced designer.

Digital Files Delivery
We prefer digital submissions via email at info@dondivamag.com or uploaded to our ftp site. If you send us a CD disk with your artwork- DO NOT send us the original or the only copy of your artwork as we cannot return CD disks.
*Page Size
Full page ad
8.25 x 10.75 Trim Size
8 x 10.5 Live Area
8.75 x 11.25 with ¹ inch bleed all four size

This means when creating your ad the document size should be 8.50 x 11 to accommodate the ¹ inch bleed. Keep all of your important logos, photos and text within the 8 x 10.25 live area. When the magazine is printed the actual size will be 8.25 x 10.75.

*ask your rep for specs on partial page ads.

Artwork Resolution
All artwork must be submitted in at least 300 dpi. This means that when the art is originally created the page size must be at least 300 dpi. You can not take a 72 dpi photo or artwork and increase it too 300 dpi. It will print blurry in the magazine. Often people think that the graphics they find on the web can be used for printing- THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Because web graphics are very low resolution your project will not print clearly.

Scanning Images
If you are scanning images to use in your ad- Scanned images need to be scanned at an appropriate resolution of 300 dpi or higher at the final dimensions you intend to use them so that your colors will look smooth, and hard objects will look sharp. You should be able to change the resolution setting and output size on most scanners from the desktop software. Do not scan at 300dpi and then enlarge the picture by 200% in your layout program!

Digital Photos
If you are using a digital camera to take pictures for your ad- the digital camera should be 3-megapixels or higher. Make sure the camera setting is set at the highest possible resolution before taking the photos. This will require reading the camera manual or take the camera to a camera shop if you are not sure how to do this. You cannot increase the size of a picture once it is taken.

Software
The best software to use for ads are Photoshop, Quark-Express, Indesign, or Illustrator for PC or Mac- however what ever software you use your file must be saved as a JPG, TIFF OR PDF. We do not accept EPS files, Quark, Indesign or Illustrator Files or any other type of files.

Format
Ads should be saved as CMYK (color mode) as a JPG, TIFF or PDF File. If you are creating a PDF file- make sure it is high resolution and print ready. We do not accept EPS or DOC files.

We CANNOT accept:
Ads created In Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Office, Powerpoint, or PaintShop. Ads submitted in these formats will be returned to the advertiser.

There will be a $150 charge for any corrections or conversions to your artwork. Art will not be corrected until fee paid.

Color Proof
We cannot guarantee the color accuracy of any ads which do not include a high quality color proof, such as a Matchprint or other high end proofs. Color inkjet or laser proofs will not guarantee color accuracy and are not considered adequate color proofs.

Any ads submitted by the advertiser shall be at the risk of the advertiser. It is the responsibility of Advertiser to ensure that artwork meets technical specifications. Publisher does not correct, re-size or change ads in any way- except for minor resizing to fit into layout. Ads sized incorrectly may cause publisher to remove bleed and add a white border around art. Don Diva will not be held liable for any misprint, color inconsistencies or advertisement appearance in any way unless 30% or more of entire publication has printing resolution inconsistencies. By signing this contract advertiser attests that they fully understand art submission requirements and Don Divaâs policies.
