1/3 Page Ad
The 1/3 page vertical sidebar ad is a particularly effective eye-catcher, since it takes up the full outside length of a page, and allows you to either "segment" the story you tell the reader, or include a tall, eye-catching graphic of people, places, and products. The horizontal banner version of this ad comes close to offering the benefits of a half page ad, but at a lower price, allowing you to extend you advertising budget across more issues. This is one of the most cost effective ads you can buy in terms of reader visibility.
The specs for this ad are either 1) 2.75" x 10.375" vertical sidebar, the most popular, or 2) a 8.375" x 3.625" banner at the top or bottom of a page.
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]
