Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is the most reliable, efficient, and effective way to distribute documents electronically. PDF is a universal file format that preserves all of the fonts, formatting, colors, and graphics of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. Acrobat lets you convert any document into an Adobe PDF file, with its original appearance preserved, and then distribute it for viewing and printing on any system. PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed and printed exactly as intended.

Ads, images and logos must be in one of the following formats:

  • EPS, TIFF, JPEG or PDF (Acrobat Ver 4).
  • They must be a minimum of 300 DPI and CMYK.
  • $69 charge for RGB conversion.
