PE magazine is printed in 4-color process, CMYK to SWOP specifications, and all pre-press is done electronically. Therefore, all advertising should be supplied in digital formats, and colors need to be converted to CMYK. Film negatives or positives, and camera- ready art are not acceptable.
Materials for ads should be submitted as a PDF (Press-optimized PDF files are preferred) file or EPS file with fonts converted to outlines. We accept collected files from Adobe InDesign CS3 or later for Windows only. Collected files created on the Mac platform are not accepted due
to the incompatibility of Mac and PC fonts.
NSPE's Communications Department is PC-based. QuarkXPress files are no longer accepted. Convert all QuarkXPress files to a press-optimized PDF. All image files must be submitted in 4-color and 300 DPI as either an EPS, JPEG, or TIFF file. Files created with Microsoft Publisher, PageMaker, FrameMaker, Corel Ventura, or any other similar programs are not accepted.
For Career Mart ads, please send text files separately from any image/graphic files. We will not accept any files that have images/graphics imported or dragged into a text file.
