Payment Terms: All prepaid invoices receive a 1.5% discount. All invoices outstanding after thirty (30) days will incur a 1.5% per month (18% per year) finance charge. All invoices outstanding after ninety (90) days may be referred to a collection agency. All orders are subject to our credit requirements. Cancellations: Notification of space cancella-tions must be received by the space closing date. The advertiser will be charged for the insertion if space is cancelled after the clos-ing date.

Desktop File Formats: quarkXPress 6.0 and lower versions; PDF, EPS or TIFF.
Proofs: A black-and-white composite proof at 100% size should be provided with all ads. If your ad contains four-color scanned imag-es or builds of three or more colors, provide a high-end digital color proof (Iris, Approval, Polaproof, etc.).

File Submission: Send ONLy the files to be used in your ad. Include a printout of the contents of your disk.
quark File Construction Guidelines:
•Build pages to trim size and extend
elements 1/8” beyond trim if bleed is required.
•Include all fonts, images, logos and art-work.
•Use only Type 1 fonts—no TrueType fonts or font substitutions.
•Do not apply style attributes to basic fonts.
•Include fonts for imported graphics, or convert fonts to outlines.
•Place all elements at 100% size.
•Do not rotate or crop images.
•Do not nest EPS files in other EPS files.
•All color images must be in CMyK mode;
no RGB images.

•Do not embed ICC profiles within images.

exceed SWOP density of 280%.
•Supply a quark “Collect for Output” or
similar report. Markzware’s FlightCheck is an excellent tool for collecting and cata-loging all necessary page elements. PDF File Construction Guidelines:
