1/2 Page Ad
The 1/2 page ad is an extremely popular choice! It has great visibility, with plenty of space for graphic elements and a substantial amount of text. Design-wise this ad size will allow you to more easily create effective ads that contain a lot of information without looking cramped. If you aren't quite ready to jump in with a full page ad, a few half page ads spread out over a number of issues will make for a great, and cost effective, brand awareness campaign.
The specs for this ad are either 1) 8.375" x 5.4375" horizontal banner, the most popular, or 2) a 4.1785" x 10.375" vertical banner.
Artwork should provide a 1/8" bleed area and a 1/4-1/2" margin for any text, to insure that text isn't clipped or too close to the edge if the ad is placed on the outside edge of a page. The resolution needs to be 300 dpi minimum, or it will not print well. The color scheme ideally needs to be CMYK - no Pantone colors will print. Also, no printer's marks, we do not need them and will just ave to remove them. You can upload your artwork now if its ready, and we will let you know if there are technical, design or editorial problems with your ad. Our website accepts PDF, JPG, PNG, TIF, EPS, and PSD formats.
Please also provide a URL for the ad to link to in the digital version of the magazine. It goes without saying of course, but VHF only promotes vegan products that are in line with the mission of the magazine.
You will receive a confirmation email that your order and artwork have been received, and your ad space has been reserved. If you have any questions, you can email us at [email protected]
