How to submit your ad

All ads must be prepaid. Please contact us to reserve your space and discuss payment options.

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, which currently has hundreds of subscribers.

If possible, display ads should be submitted as PDF files. Quark Xpress and Pagemaker can export directly to PDF; with other programs you may have to create a Postscript file and distill it. If you don't have Acrobat Distiller, you can submit your file in PS (Postscript) or EPS format. In either case, please make sure that all fonts are embedded and that all graphics are high resolution—at least 600 dpi for line art, 200 dpi for grayscale. You can check font embedding in Acrobat Reader (under Document info in the File menu). To check graphics, print out the PDF file—graphics should not look fuzzy, jagged, or pixelated.
