The members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity represent a distinctive segment of the nation’s demographic profile. Alpha men have been instrumental in the founding and leadership of the NAACP (W.E.B. Dubois), People’s National Party (PNP) (Norman Manley), Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) (Jesse E. Moorland), UNCF (Frederick D. Patterson) and the SCLC (King, Walker and Jemison). The National Urban League has had eight presidents in it almost 100 years of existence; six of its leaders are Alpha men: George Edmund Haynes (1st president of the NUL), Eugene Jones, Lester Granger, Whitney Young, Hugh Price and Marc Morial. Alpha men are well educated, earn competitive incomes and maintain positions of influence and respect within the larger community.
WELCOME ALL HANDS... No matter where you are, the city of Detroit plays an important part of our lives. It is known as the “Motor City,” the birthplace of the automotive industry that drives our economy. It is known as “Motown” for providing us with songs for generations and the soundtrack of our lives with musical legends like Aretha Franklin, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder and many more. The city was the backdrop for important civil rights challenges and gave rise to a renaissance for the future of a nation, and now a fraternity. I invite you to come and experience the sights and sounds of a great city and for my installation. I have had many brothers ask, “What do you need for me to do?” or “How can I help?” Well, it is my pleasure to now invite you to Detroit so you can hear for yourself what I plan to do with your help, if you lend it to me. Alpha needs “ALL HANDS ON DECK!” The strength of our brotherhood is the might of our legacy.

Alpha Phi Alpha chapters were established at other colleges and universities, many of them historically black institutions, soon after its founding at Cornell University. The first alumni chapter was established in 1911. While continuing to stress academic excellence among its members, Alpha also recognized the need to help correct the educational, economic, political and social injustices faced by African-Americans. Alpha Phi Alpha has long stood at the forefront of the African-American community’s fight for civil rights through leaders such as: W.E.B. DuBois, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Edward Brooke, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, William Gray, Paul Robeson and many others. True to its form as the “first of firsts,” Alpha Phi Alpha has been interracial since 1945.

PolaProof), Agfa Sherpa, EFI/Best ColorProof (Canon, Epson, HP), CGS ORIS (Canon, Epson), GMG ColorProof (Canon, Epson, HP), or ColorBurst (Epson). Color lasers, PDFs or other continuous-tone proofs will also be accepted.
1. Who do I contact with technical issues? The Souvenir Journal Project team are the best people to contact with any technical questions relating to your ad. You can reach the team at 410.554.0040.
7. What is a PostScript Type1 font? PostScript Type1 refers to the type of PostScript encoding used to recognize a font and its characteristics. Because the RIP (Raster Image Processing) process (see “What is localized styling and why is it bad?”) renders files by their PostScript code, a non-PostScript font is not recognized properly during output. A good source for purchasing PostScript Type1 fonts is Adobe’s web site, www.adobe.com.
2. Who do I send materials to? Materials can be sent to the Souvenir Journal via your preferred method of courier. We can accept digital files on CD & DVD and e-mail at ads@ apa1906.net 3. What program files does Alpha accept? We prefer either TIFF/IT-P1 files, PDF/X-1a files or layout application files built in QuarkXPress or InDesign. We also accept Photoshop and Illustrator files saved in EPS or TIFF format. Word documents will be accepted; however, we cannot guarantee the quality of the ad. 4. Can Alpha make changes to my ad? Sometimes. If the file is supplied as a TIFF/ITP1, PDF/X-1a, EPS or TIFF file, we are unable to edit the advertisement. However, if the file is supplied in a PC/Mac-based layout program, we can. Please remember that any alterations to a file will incur an additional charge. Also, due to strict printing deadlines, we are unable to make an alteration if it is requested too late in our production cycle. 5. Why do I need to give Alpha a high quality proof? In order to ensure that what we reproduce in the Souvenir Journal is exactly what you envision, we require a “proof” of each ad to accompany the digital file. Not only does this help us eliminate errors in the reproduction, but it gives us visual guidance while working on your ad, making the entire process run much more smoothly. We ask that your proof show trim marks for positioning and bleed. Each proof must also be supplied with a calibrated color bar. We request you submit one of the following proofs: Kodak Approval, Fuji FinalProof, Kodak Matchprint Digital Halftone, Fuji PictroProof, Kodak Veris (formerly Creo Veris), DuPont Waterproof Therma l, Kodak Matchprint Inkjet/ProofPro (Canon, Epson, HP), DuPont Cromalin, Latran Prediction (formerly Polaroid
6. What are support files? Support files are any of the elements brought together in the layout to make up the entire page design. These include images, logos and fonts. Either OpenType or Macintosh Postscript Type1 screen and printer fonts are required for us to be able to view the image on-screen and to print it correctly.
8. What is an OpenType font with PostScript outlines? OpenType is a new cross-platform font file format developed jointly by Adobe and Microsoft. Adobe has converted the entire Adobe Type Library into this new format. The two main benefits of the OpenType format are its cross-platform compatibility (the same font file works on Macintosh and Windows computers) and its ability to support widely expanded character sets and layout features, which provide richer linguistic support and advanced typographic control. OpenType fonts use a single font file for all of its outline, metric and bitmap data, rather than separate screen and outline font files. The OpenType format is a superset of the existing TrueType and PostScript Type1 font formats. OpenType can contain either PostScript font outlines (.otf) or TrueType font outlines (.ttf).OpenType .otf fonts are recognized and rendered on-screen by a PostScript rasterizer, such as Adobe Type Manager (ATM), which is either installed as an add-on system software component or built into some operating systems, such as Mac OS X. OpenType fonts peacefully co-exist with current font formats and can be used in the same document alongside PostScript Type1 fonts. The Souvenir Journal Team recommends using only either Macintosh PostScript Type1 fonts or OpenType fonts with PostScript outlines (.otf) for final page composition. 9. What is localized styling and why is it bad? Localized styling is altering the bold or italic appearance of a font (typeface) within a
program. For example, if you are using the font Minion in your ad and you would like certain copy to be bold, you might be tempted to simply make the font bold by using the “bold” button in the style menu. The proper way to handle this is to use the font that gives you exactly the look you want, i.e., Minion Bold from the global font menu. By using the layout software’s “bold” function rather than using the bold version of the font, you are also disregarding the type designers, kerning and character shape adjustments. The reason we avoid localized styling is to avoid potential problems during the process of sending the final electronic file for output. This process, known as Raster Image Processing (RIP) used for print production, is generally based on PostScript technology. Basically, the RIP translates all elements of the file, including the fonts, according to its PostScript code to enable proper press-ready output. Sometimes, when localized styling is applied to a font, the RIP software does not recognize this encoding as part of the font’s PostScript code and this information can be lost, resulting in incorrect reproduction. 10. Can I use an image from a web site? Most likely not. Most images that are used on the Internet are prepared at a resolution of 72 ppi (the resolution of most common computer monitors), to allow them to be loaded and viewed quickly. Unfortunately, this resolution is much too low for quality print reproduction; we recommend 300 ppi at 100% of final placement size. Otherwise, the image may look “jagged.” 11. What should I do if my file is very large? All files should be compressed into one folder before electronic submission. We can accept files compressed using Zip (.zip) or StuffIt (.sit and/or .sea). Using one of these compression options will minimize the potential for problems when we decompress the file. You can also submit your files via www.wetransfer.com. 12. What images or text will not be accepted? Most images traditionally submitted have been acceptable. However, some images are not nationally recognized or endorsed by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. Examples of these unacceptable images include (but are not limited to): King Tut, apes, monkeys, scantily clad people and sexually suggestive images. Images that include the Sphinx of Giza, members at functions and traditional chapter photos are acceptable. Derogatory or otherwise unsuitable language will not be accepted. Inappropriate nicknames will not be accepted. Examples of inappropriate nicknames include (but are not limited to): bloody, gangster, pimpin’ and crazy. If there is any question to the use of a nickname, it would be best to just leave it out.
