Convert all text in Adobe Illustrator to "Outlines". We do not accept ads created in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, PowerPoint or any other word processing program.
Spread Advertisement: The page or document size should be the same as the final ad size with bleed extending 1/4" beyond trim. No gutter allowance is required between pages.
