digitally supplied specification

Advertisements should be supplied as high resolution TIF, JPG or PDF files to pre-press standards of a minimum 300 pixels/inch (118 pixels/cm). A high resolution proof is also advisable. We cannot accept Microsoft Word or PowerPoint files for advertisements since they do not meet pre-press quality specifications.

PLEASE NOTE: without a high resolution proof, SORJ cannot be held responsible for the output of supplied files.
