Print Ad Specifications

Mechanical Requirements
NADCA is PC based and can only accept digital files for all advertisements. The supported file types are .ai, .eps, .jpg, .tif and .pdf. All text must be outlined and embedded within the document so that no unwanted changes occur when the advertisement is opened by NADCA. All .pdfs must be exported at high quality and any other files types have to be a minimum of 300 dpi.
