THE POWER OF VIBRANT, CLEAR COLOR Color strongly influences a reader’s attention. Color can convey a mood, emphasize a point or make your ad jump off the page. In a recent readership study by the Newspaper Association of America readers said they were 60% more likely to read through an entire full color ad versus an ad that used black as its dominant color.

ADDITIONAL POLICIES: • Preprinted inserts are due at the St. Joseph News-Press production facility no later than one week prior to insertion date • Single sheet inserts should be printed on minimum 70# paper. • Inserts requiring special handling due to printer damage, improper skidding or transportation damage may require an additional charge. • All preprinted inserts are subject to postal regulations and publisher policies.

Digital Document Submission Guidelines FORMAT COMPATIBILITY

The St. Joseph News-Press Ad Production teams are using Adobe InDesign on Apple Macintoshes to build spec and live ads. This platform has the flexibility to accept or convert a number of file formats. To have one of our teams build your ad call your St. Joseph News-Press Advertising Consultant or the Advertising Department at 816.271.8527 for assistance. The table of compatible or incompatible formats will be updated as new software/hardware technologies evolve. Higher version numbers may NOT be compatible, but lower version numbers can usually be converted. At this time PDF is our preferred format when there are no changes to be made. We will gladly send you our job options so that the PDFs you create will be fully compatible.


In order to guarantee quality and accuracy, the St. Joseph NewsPress requires hard copy with most digital material for publication. AdSend is excluded. The hard copy is usually from a fax machine or laser printer and serves as a rough representation of how the final product should appear.


We use both OpenType fonts (preferred) and Apple/Microsoft TrueType fonts. It is best to include the fonts with your document, or be aware of the possibility of font substitution. If we do not have a specific font that is used in the document, we will use your hard copy to match the font as closely as possible. If you are sending a PDF all fonts should be embedded, and will be when you use our job options.


All graphics placed in your document must be either TIFF or EPS format. Use the “Package” feature in InDesign or the QuarkXPress feature called “Collect for Output” from the file menu to create a file which includes your document, all placed files, and an auto generated report file. We recommend all files are converted to CMYK before sent and checked for color changes. We will convert all graphics to CMYK for printing purposes.


Most photographs, both color and grayscale, will reproduce well if the resolution is 200 dpi (300 dpi preferred). If the photo will be enlarged in the layout program, higher resolution will minimize pixelation. Photos should be saved in either tiff or eps format. Full color photos should be saved as RGB tiffs or eps. This will allow the imaging department to process your color photos with our custom optimizing software.


We accept: CDs ; AP AdSend ; Web Based Services such as Media Passage ; FTP (call your sales rep. for information). NOTE: Please stuff or zip your files before you e-mail them. E-mail has a file size restriction of about 3MB (your ISP may impose additional limits). FTP works best with large files.

All ads sent through e-mail should be sent to your sales reps attention.
