Print Ad Submissions
Ad material must now be submitted through our “SendMyAd” portal: https://questex.sendmyad.com. The Questex Ad Portal is designed for quick and efficient ad material submission. The portal offers advertisers immediate feedback on file uploads and advice for fixing any problems, should they occur. The ad portal is web-based, so no FTP is required. Please note the following:
- PDFs should conform to the PDF/X - 1a specification. All advertising material must be single page PDF. (If your ad is a spread, you must export your file as a one page PDF by clicking on the “spread” box when exporting.)
- No crop marks or color bars. If you must have them on for a client, be sure they are at least 18 points OFFSET – then upon upload into the portal, click on REPOSITION AD and use the Trim & Save Tool to remove them before approving the ad.
- CMYK only. No RGB, LAB or PMS colors.
- Image resolution must be at least 300 dpi.
- If you have any questions regarding acceptable file formats or the SendMyAd portal submission process, please contact Mona Nickell at [email protected] or [email protected].
