How to submit your ad

or call (617) 447-2177 to reserve your space. All ads must be prepaid.

For black and white ads, you may submit a color version of your ad in addition to the black and white version. The color ad will be used in the digital issue of Dollars & Sense.

Display ads should be submitted as high-resolution (300dpi) .pdf or .tiff files. Please make sure that fonts are embedded. You can check font embedding in Acrobat Reader (under Document Info in the File menu). For best results, all type and graphics should be black and white or grayscale. Colors may print faintly or not at all. For four-color back-cover ads, please use CMYK format.
