Please ensure that all files are flattened in the original application prior to sending, and that the final document is the exact dimensions for the ad space required There should be no bleed or trim marks included in your final file.

Design of ads must allow for the nature of the newspaper printing process. Colour text, or text on colour background, must have a minimum point size of 10pt and the font weight set to bold. Trap setting should be adjusted to allow for the risk of miss-register or overprint used where registration is critical. Total ink weight of 240 will need to be honoured.

Text smaller than 7pt should not be used.

The standard profile is ISOnewspaper26v4
