HELPFUL HINTS FOR BETTER AD REPRODUCTION:

Ad Design Guidelines:

We offer free, basic, one-version Ad design that you will be able to review for errors or omissions. Our free Ad design service satisfies most client. However, some client may want to find  professional designer or agency for their advertising designs.

– Photos and artwork should be at least 150+dpi and lightened/brightened at least 15% to compensate for dot-gain/darkening during the printing process.

-Photos are recommended to be well-lighted, high-contrast and sharp. Note: that great color-photos do not always translate into great black and white photo. Ideally, color photos will be converted and contrast-adjusted before inclusion in Ad layouts.

– Text photos/screened areas: text place over photos/screened areas is generally not recommended unless the text is larger (at least 14pts) and offers a high-contrast to its background. The larger and more contrast, the better.

Ad Content / Design:
A good print Ad design will communicate quickly – in a glance – what service or product is being offered. Once you have the readers attention, more details can be offered, such as bullet points listing the 3 top reasons readers should use your product or service, then contact info.
