1. TRQ is produced on a Mac platform utilizing InDesign
as our publishing program; therefore, it is of little use to us
if your ad was created on your PC other than for us to re-create
it. We can also accept ads created in Quark Xpress, Adobe Illustrator,
or Photoshop. Our magazine trim size is 8.25" x 10.75"
with a .125" bleed on all four sides. The "live area"
is 7.25" x 9.75" which allows for a .5" margin all
Computer media and print media are NOT the same! What looks excellent
on a computer screen can end up looking pretty bad once it's printed.
We can work with almost all photos—be they snapshots, Polaroids
or digital photos. We will reject any photos which will not reproduce
well—too dark, too grainy, too out of focus. Photos should
be scanned at 300 dpi at the approximate size they will be printed
in the magazine and saved as JPEGs if you are e-mailing them to
us or TIFFs if you are sending them on a CD. When e-mailing photos,
please attach just one photo per e-mail. We have a large selection
of typefaces available, but include typefaces if they are part of
your logo or absolutely necessary to your design treatment.
We reserve the right to edit your ad to make it conform to TRQ’s
specs. If submitting it "printer ready" and it is not
properly prepared, we may have to make some changes. If
sending in "printer ready," it MUST be editable by us
to correct typos or be certain that our printing specs are met.
If you are submitting the same ad to different publications, be
sure the ad you send to TRQ conforms to TRQ's specs.
