A proof must be delivered regardless of proofing category – contract or content. Nevada Magazine cannot accept responsibility for reproduction problems or file corruptions or missing elements associated with ads not accompanied by a proof.
Contract color proofs
If color is critical, a SWOP approved proof must accompany the ad. The proof will be used as a guide to adjust the press. However, due to the nature of web printing, exact color cannot be guaranteed. Here is a list of approved color proofs:
Fuji Pictro Proof
Kodak Approval Imation
Rainbow Polaroid Polaproof
Kodak DCP 9000
Matchprint Digital Proof
For a list of additional SWOP certified proofs please visit www.swop.org
CONTENT PROOF IS REQUIRED IF NO CONTRACT PROOF IS PROVIDED
The following proofs will be used for content only, not color: color laser or inkjet proof. An electronic proof cannot be used to check content, as what you see may not match what we get. Ads not accompanied by a proof will be run as is, with no guarantee of accuracy.
Preferred file type
For best results, create a print-resolution (300 dpi) PDF with live or vector type and all fonts embedded. You may also submit InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator EPS or TIFF files.
QuarkXPress 6.5 or earlier may be used, but are not preferred. Ads created in Pagemaker, MS-Publisher, or other applications not mentioned are not usable. If you use a Windows PC, include a PDF, TIFF or editable EPS file in addition to source files. We cannot guarantee that we can modify Windows files correctly if your ad has a problem and our deadline prevents getting a corrected ad from you.
Type 1 fonts are preferred; TrueType fonts are acceptable. Do not use Type 3 fonts. Choose bold or italic fonts when needed; don’t apply bold or italic styles to plain fonts or your type may not output correctly. To avoid font issues with EPS files, convert your all fonts to outlines.
All bit-mapped images must be minimum of 266dpi (with 300dpi preferred) —do not enlarge 300dpi images more than 112%.
Use process CMYK colors (not RGB, spot or index colors). Do not embed color profiles in image files. Nevada Magazine will remove color profiles and convert spot colors to CMYK.
Converted colors may not match your original. Use a “rich black” of 70% cyan, 20% magenta and 100% black in 4/C ads for a deeper black color.
Sending your ad
