Double-Page Print Ads
In every magazine there are three ad types that capture the most reader attention: Double Page Spreads, the inside front cover, and the inside back cover. Double Page spreads allow you to essentially create your own section of the magazine. Tell whatever story you like, you have ample room for compelling, page-crossing graphics, columns of text, and over 15 inches of banner space for whatever headings you want to include. There are no outside distractions in a double page spread, when the reader turns to your pages, their attention is fully yours. The inside front and inside back covers are ideal for these types of placements, but they are extremely effective anywhere.
The specs for a double page spread are two pages, each sized at at 8.375" x 10.375". Be mindful that the center area, consisting of a space about 1/2 inch wide, will be difficult to see in the binding, so do not place important text in this area.
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.
